So in my infinite wisdom, while removing one of the springs from my Bosch POF 1200 AE router I accidentally took the router motor out of the housing itself.
When I removed it I heard click, click and thought nothing of it until I tried to reinstall the motor into the housing, and after a bit of investigation it looks like there's some... brushes or something blocking the top bearing going all the way in.
From the pictures I took and from the online instructional diagram it seems that they sit in the brass-looking areas either side, however my fingers and pliers aren't long enough to get in there and reseat them.
I did manage to use a pencil to navigte and one into the brass seat, but there is some sort of spring mechanism that forces it out; I'm asssuming this to make these brush-things contact the router motor to make it run shrugs.
Can anybody help me make sense of this and how to fix it such that I can successfully reassemble my router?
