I took this motor out of a BMW E90, and I can't seem to find it on the internet. It seems to be manufactured by Johnson Electric. It was used to operate the steering lock in the vehicle. I also don't know if there is a specific name for such a motor; it has a location for plugging in instead of strips or wires. I'm trying to find it's specs and the model number in order to find and purchase it. I think the pic has the model number, but I haven't been able to find it using that number. It's design seems useful for certain applications.
