Bottom line: it works! And, delivery was much faster than the 1-month estimate.
Now the caveats... This was our 3rd Wii home repair (2 lasers, 1 motor) and experience helped. Like other spare parts, this motor came with no instructions. Be ready to surf the web for how-to guides. You'll also need a tri-wing driver, miniature screwdrivers, T6 torx, and other tools. After you replace the motor, adjust the 3 screws by tightening them down and then backing off a few turns until a loaded disc spins freely. In our case the disc rubbed at first and would not load until I found the right # of turns, which was different for each of the 3 screws. Be ready to experiment, and with common sense you can be a happy customer.
My kids' Wii was not reading discs, and after watching the unit run with the cover off I noticed the disc wouldn't spin. Upon further inspection I noticed that it was hard to turn the motor by hand. This motor is a direct replacement, and installs with little effort. There are some delicate ribbon cables and small screws that need to be removed and reinstalled so some care is needed. Also, a tri-wing screwdriver is needed to remove some of the screws. Apart from that, a small precision phillips screwdriver and a torx (can't remember which size) will get the rest of the screws. Once the unit is installed, the three torx screws that hold it in place need to be adjusted to keep the disc from scraping up against the frame. These are easy to adjust.
I recommend this part to anyone with the same issue.
I ordered replacement for the whole DVD drive. Well, it did work for me and I retuned it. I decided to buy only the Motor. and fix my old drive. It took more then 10 days to be delivered, but it work s fine at the end
