Where did you have the AF motor on your lens repaired? I have a 28-70 AF-S which I think needs the same repair and am trying to decide whether it's worth it to fix it (I was trying to sell it when the thing stopped autofocusing). I'm trying to decide whether to send it to APS or KEH for repair; I read that Nikon will no longer do the repair.

Turnaround was astoundingly fast, even though I sent in my D800 for a CLA at the same time.  I'd suggest calling them and seeing if they have the needed parts.  The 28-70mm was discontinued in 2007, so the 10-year grace window has passed.
