ABS pump/motor fix

I'm in the middle of fixing the notorious ABS pump on my 08. Although the unit on the bike has failed, I am doing a trial run on a spare failed unit I have. I'll keep ya posted on progress.
What I have already found:

1) for removing the motor from the valve assy: if you heat the tabs with a torch it makes the aluminum much easier to peen away from the mounting tabs so they don't break away...

2)Using a strong magnet next to the holes you drill almost completely eliminates filings getting everywhere.

3)It's not stuck, the magnets inside have a gorilla grip on it preventing you from easily pulling the internals out of the housing.

Thanks to Don on the I-bmw site..
