Might pe possible, but there's some time/work involved to open
the door and get the thing out, so it makes more sense to me to
just exchange it, as I'm not willing to open it more then once
for the problem. I'm sure there's not much dirt involved, the car
has it's own garage, so it's inside most of the time.
Ordered the servo motor today at my Ford dealer, after explaining
what had happened he was pretty sure it'd be the motor. It will
arrive tomorrow, it's about 106,- Euro, the complete car might be
about 250000 Euro in spare parts.;( I'll follow up to this thread
as soon as there are news about the matter.
