GXE7708 from Moss Europe will do the job. However, stripping, cleaning and re-greasing the existing motor and possibly adding a new brush plate could work wonders, as could doing the same for the rack mechanism and pivots.

Seconded. That motor and linkage most likely hasn't been touched since it was first fitted. It's surprising how much difference cleaning and regreasing can make for nearly zero outlay, can be a slightly fiddly job but not really difficult.

Agreed, old clunky grease can really slow them down.
