To my knowledge the green circle indicates hardened splines. Ive yet to ever see one of these fail.

I have the hardened spline motors available RIGHT NOW. Already installed in over 20+ cars. Not a single mechanical failure yet. Full warranty available on these parts as well.

Can be specific with the warranty: miles/years ?

Sure. It's a full year, 12,000 miles. Considering the factory motors usually fail within 7-15,000 miles, that covers your normal range of failure. I'm going to stand by my product, so if it fails outside of the warranty range I'll be more than happy to work with you.

Full disclosure here as well. I've warrantied two motors so far, both for electrical issues related to the temp sensors. Both motors were some of our first rebuilds. The wires inside weren't routed 100% correctly, so when the motor started moving it ripped the wire right out of the connector. One motor was replaced completely. The other was able to be repaired in the car. Since those, wire routing was changed slightly and no issues since.

References from owners that have these motors installed are available.

@Harleyguy, @FiskerPhilly - does green circle mean hardened splines and the lack of them mean trouble ? How do I check to see if I have the one ones with the green circles ?

The green circles are on the bottom of the motors. If you look under the rear of the vehicle, you can see the circles at the bottom of the motor if you have them. They are about 4 inches in diameter.

I couldn't say an exact cutoff on VIN for them to be installed from the factory, though it would be a much higher VIN.
