    after a crash one motor of the gimbal doesn't work more than 2 second after power on.

    there is a grinding noise, i suspect some dirt got inside.

    Anyone has disassembled the motors? Looks like the metal cage around the winding hard to come apart I plan for a cleanup (with alcohol?)

    Try compressed air.

    sure, this would have been last attempt before disassembly, will even try vacuum cleaner (in order to prevent dirt being push/stuck deeper into the motor).

    Thanks anyway.

    Thanks, unfortunately looks like it stops at the whole motor & housing.

    Anyway I disassembled only the ribbon plastic guard and using vacuum cleaner & compressed air I succesfully removed the dirt.

    The gimbal now works.
