It is a pain to get in the door, but not difficult, there are bits and pieces that break easily, so be gentle.
The 100 series crowd was able to source replacement motors that cost $5, I have no idea if they fit an 80, but the fix worked great for me in my 100 and saved a good bit. Might be worth looking into.
That is a perfect link for the 80. I can do that. I found one for the SC300 too and guess what? It's staying broken.
