I just love my job.
Long story short, Mrs R VW EOS, which has a folding tin roof, which also has a sun roof . Sunroof motor gear, which is plastic/nylon injection design, part of the gear teeth stripped, basically rendering opening sunroof and tin roof opening useless.
Motor works well, just a section of stripped teeth area causing the problem (plus another part outwith motor I have to look at) Cost of replacement motor/assembly through usual culprits ranging from £150 to £200.
Brainwave (yes I do still have them) 3D printed gear wheel, still to be installed, but I am optimistic, see images.
Ps, black gear is 3D printed new part.

Looks like the same wheel used on all wiper motors,bet any motor could have been made to fit,the jobs a good un though.
Only dirty people wash
my son was making or buying a plastic recycling unit for his printer. presumably it could turn different grades of plastic into the wire used.
too blessed to be stressed
