They are all the same pretty much. You should be able to find an exploded diagram online.

Should be pretty much the same.

Pretty easy but do not pull the armature out of you can help it. It is a pain to get the brushes spread to put the armature back in. I believe the trick is to slide a toilet paper tube in to hold the brushes in place, then insert the armature inside the tube and then slide the tube out.

Nice tip! I've never actually taken one apart myself.

OP, if you do, document your process! pictures please!

That's a good idea. I have used the disposable floss picks to hold the brushes back and just clip the floss so the brush releases against the armature. It's sometimes tough though to hold all the brushes back at once, a second set of hands is nice but not always available.
