My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

I see no one has posted any help with this here.In some cases this can be due to the info you may be looking for may be difficult to obtain or the correct person that can help may not be online.

This all depends on shop prices and what is involved in replacing this motor on this model here.On some models it can be as simple as a few bolts and under an hour to replace it with the motor less then $100 but I have seen some replacements over $500.You will need to have this inspected further to determine how much this will cost as well as how it is replaced.If this is not enough info for you on this let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Hello, Thanks for the reply. Yes Sir I need to purchase and replace this myself. I cannot find the motor on line. And I have no idea the proceedure to replace same. I know the rear is spring loaded so I dont think I can do it with awning out. But there is no room to pull motor out with awning up. It looks like the motor is riveted to the awning tube. Is there a better way to remove motor? And can I buy motor from you? Do you want me to send pictures? If so please send phone number that I can text you. Or email is fine.Thanks, Rick.

Unfortunately this is all of the info I have on this here myself.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
