MVacs, I replied to Claire but havn't had a response. The buy link listed the brush housing as used, I did say above I was after a New one. Do you have any new ones? Also I don't need a retaining ring anymore, got one off ebay while I could incase you didn't have an Ametek one.

So if you could sort a new price for the following:

Motor case housing - New or Used.
Lime brush housing - New if you have it, I'll leave it if not.
Dyson DC04 On/Off Button Removal Tool - Might aswell pickup one of these :)

Please confirm price before creating the buy link. Thanks.

Just to let you know I no longer require these, was lucky and got it all plus a motor for 99p off ebay.

Thank you for your help though, I'll be sure to come back and buy a motor from you when I need one.

I wouldn't expect a 99p ebay motor to last very long, if it works at all.

Probably a lot of parts and he was the only one bidding,  I've dropped lucky like that before.

First bargain for me, feels good doesn't it Madrat.

Collection only and I was the only bidder. Just needed the housing but got lots of spair bits now too, even has the motor to power switch cable. Apparrently the motor does work but not tried it yet, commutator is a bit black but the post filter was completely saturated. Brushes are about half worn so a spair set of those at least.

Only thing is two of the tabs on the retaining ring were snapped off, the ones closest to the housing, but they are still in place, same thing happened on mine aswell, is that a common fault? Seems like a design flaw.
