I hate to say it, but it kind of depends on how far the damage goes. I've seen a LOT of cars with this problem now. Sometimes only the motor gets spun out with only minor damage to the differential and it (the diff) can be re-used. Sometimes the differential shaft gets damaged beyond use and it needs to be replaced as well. In rare occasions, I've seen one motor stripped out, the differential taken out with it and the other motor getting very worn as well. The unfortunate thing is that you can never tell how bad it is until you've taken the differential/motors out of the car and separate them.
I sell a rebuilt motor for $2850, which includes a 1 yr/12,000 mile warranty. A rebuilt motor consists of a new center shaft assembly, all new bearings, all new seals and if it's the older style, we wrap the 3-phase wires as well to help prevent chafing.
