Is it possible to get this motor apart?

I had this motor quit on me, I suspect a wire broke as one leg is making intermittent contact when I check it with a ohmmeter.
So I thought I might try to repair or rewind it.
It is a 12mm HC motor, and the postage would cost more than the motor to send back for warranty of course.
Thanks

That's an inrunner. You can likely use these instructions for taking it apart:

You might be able to solder a shorted wire. Be sure to clean off the insulation or solder won't hold. You can insulate the joint with a little epoxy 'paint' if shrink wrap won't fit.

Not worth trying to rewind IMO. Inrunners are considerably more difficult than outrunners.
