i work at CME automotive. we make winshelid wiper motors and assemblies, car horns, minvan sliding door motors sunroof motors and someother things.
It cost us 12 dollars to make the motors for the cadillac motors. and that includes parts, labor shipping...everyhting.
we sell them to Gm for about 80 bucks and autozone for about 200 (when its a newer vehicle) we have about 4 or five motor lines producing about 900 a day, each line.
isnt it incrediable what we pay vs. the cost of actually making it.
