I would have opted to just buy a new one ;)

You can get them online reasonably cheaply and its not worth the hassle of stripping it down again for a failed repair.

Well Spotted, Replaced both motors today with motors from link above (Veedubmachine). Perfect fit, both lamps now dip together for first time since owning vehicle.
This forum proves its worth, yet again. Now just the aux heater broken wire to fix, well, at least for now.
