Sorry, NO -- you can not replace the motor in a hard drive.

 

While you COULD have that done at a commercial drive repair facility, prices will start around $1000 USD! I know because I had a drive fail a while back and that's the cheapest price I could find.

 

The drive has to be disassembled in a clean-room environment -- and those cost a lot to maintain.

 

You would need to replace the drive, and if it will not spin up anymore, then sorry, there is no way to recover data from the drive other than using the commercial drive repair facilities.

 

Good Luck
