This listing is for one rebuild service for all 1988 through 2002 Lotus Esprit and 1990-1992 Lotus Elan. 

NOTE- There was 800 lotus Elan Series 2 (S2) produced in 1994-1995. These motors may work on these cars but you should contact me to confirm the part number on the motor before ordering. 

If you need both motors rebuilt then please select two items and I will assume you need 1 left and 1 right. When one motor fails the other is usually not far behind. There is absolutely no aftermarket for these headlight motors and repairable core motors are very hard to find. Rebuilding them is the only good option so please understand this before ordering and please remember to return your cores so that I can continue to provide my low cost rebuild service to other lotus owners. 

You have 2 options to handle the core exchange for this item:

*OPTION # 1 CORE EXCHANGE.......After winning and paying for this item you can send your headlight motor core(s) and I will rebuild it and ship it back to you within 2 business days of receipt or send an already rebuilt replacement. Send your core motor to Stanley Miller, 56020 Farmington Drive, Middlebury, IN 46540 USA. You will also receive a message after your purchase which will include the shipping address to send your cores.

**OPTION #2 REFUNDABLE CORE DEPOSIT (Esprit only).....If you prefer to have the motor(s) shipped to you right away and then return your core(s) to me later please see my other listing that has the $75 per motor refundable core deposit included in the purchase price. The deposit will be promptly refunded back to your Paypal account (or credit card if payment is made by credit card) the same day I receive your complete rebuildable core motor(s). The other listing includes a small fee to help cover additional eBay fees. If you prefer to avoid the fee you can purchase this listing and send a message or a note with your payment requesting option #2 and I will send you a separate PayPal invoice for the refundable core deposit. Also let us know which side you need if only purchasing one. For more information about core deposits and why they are necessary please review the information in the link below:


HEAVY DUTY GEAR UPGRADE.....now only $25 additional....I am now able to offer a heavy duty rebuild with a CNC machined hard anodized aluminum gear. This upgrade will fortify the main weakness in these motors which is the gear assembly. You will likely never have to worry about a stripped or broken gear ever again. You cannot buy a new or rebuilt motor with this upgrade anywhere else but here. Request a total with the upgrade before you pay and I will add the upgrade to your eBay invoice.

Your headlight motor will be completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned, the brushes inspected for wear and replaced when necessary, the armature housing is bead blasted and repainted when necessary to remove all traces of rust, all new gaskets and precision machined Delrin torque pins installed. The new torque pins are much better quality than the OEM pins which fail and end up being ground to bits inside the gear housing. The nylon gear is replaced when necessary and properly lubricated with the correct OEM grease. End play is also adjusted and then the entire assembly is fully bench tested to assure your headlight motor is working perfectly and runs as quiet and smooth as when it was new!

Please check my feedback and you will find many happy customers.

WARRANTY.......All my headlight motors come with a 3 year no hassle warranty. Keep your Paypal receipt for your records and if you have a problem with your motor within the warranty period just send it back to me and I will repair it and ship back to you within 2 business days or send a replacement.

Fell free to contact me through eBay messaging or at 574-596-6638 with your questions or concerns before bidding.

I have a 10 day handling time on my listing for those customers sending me their cores to be rebuilt but if you pay the core deposit your headlight motor will usually ship within 2 business days.

Beware eBay sellers selling used headlight motors that have not been rebuilt! If they are still working they won't be for long. After 20+ years they will soon fail for the same reasons as the one(s) you are trying to replace. That is why they do not warranty them or only warranty them for 14 days (Seriously 14 days!!!) In most cases my rebuild service is still cheaper than used motors.

NOTE>>> I want to buy your Lotus Esprit & Elan headlight motor cores. If you have any and would like to sell I will give $50 each for them.
