Carefree Smart Visor Motor

I have the Colorado Smart Visor on my passenger side quite working. I removed and checked voltage on wires both up/down, it was good! The drivers side works fine.

I took the motor off and you can tell it got hot, wires were melted off and the motor end fused to the plastic support. The gear drive looks good, took it apart, no strip gears and moves freely.

So the motor itself is bad. Has anyone found a replacement. There are not identifying marks on it. Does anyone know what RPM motor it is.

I found this on Amazon. Looks like it might work and for the price I may give it a try.

Check out rollertrol.com for replacement motors. I am very happy with mine after 4 years it's still going strong.

I did do a rough estimate of RPM's. The drivers side sun screen lowers about 18", it took less then 5 seconds to raise it up. The screen roller itself is slightly larger then 1" so the circumference is ~+3.14" or slightly larger, so I figure it took ~5 wraps to bring the shade up in 5 seconds or ~60 rpm, so a 50 rpm drive should be about right.

I will order one and see if it fits and post results.
