If you can get your hands under there you might try. I would just take the seat out and lay it "on its back", (down on an old blanket) to make the motor swap easier. 4 bolts, pull wire connection, seat out - repair motor - seat in, 4 bolts, wire connected.

Take the seat out........it's very easy, four bolts and a plug.
