    it could also be the wires that feed the connector on the back, my old A3 had issues where i tied the wire back on itself to temporarily fuse the connection...which had obviously broken within the wires sheething

    No it'll be the brushes as usual.
    I tried the replacement brushes and found them noisey, so replaced the whole unit. Count yourself lucky, I had to spend 180 quid on mine (as it was a while back before ebay). The brushes should work fine if you are handy with a soldering iron.

    What replacement brushes did you use?

    If you use these ones then they should be fine. I used these in my Passat and they're perfect - as good as OEM. (There's a way you can fit them without needing a soldering iron but you need to cut a wee bit off the end of the brush)
