2006 X3 3.0i Denso Starter

Does anyone know where to get a starter brush plate for a denso starter?
Two of the brushes need replaced and it doesn't make sense to replace the entire starter when everything else is in good condition. I've googled, Youtubed, Ebayed, Amazoned, call local auto part stores with no luck.

I called Nations and this starter is no longer being manufactured. Guess that's why it's been so difficult to find parts for it. Hopefully we can find something interchangeable or just get the brushes and have them soldered on.

carbon brushes are easy to file to shape

>many folks just get close enough and file the brushes to fit the holder

Yeah, think we decided to take it to a starter shop and have them do their magic.
Thanks for all your input!
