Question about Drills
I stupidly left my brand new Makita 8391D out in the rain all night. It was in its case BUT OPEN which was worse because once the moulding filled with water it gave it a pretty good soaking. I have dried it all extrenaly and have it sitting on our Rayburn. I am considering whether to risk taking it apart to try and dry it further, or take it into some sort of Makita drill hospital! Any advice would be most welcome.
If the battery was connected you probably shorted out the battery. Shake all water out of drill and let dry. get a battery that was not in water, try this. If still won't work you will have to bring to repair shop. If you try and take it apart it may be hard to put back together.

eReplacementParts.com is the site I prefer.
You can right click and select open or double left click on the link. If that does not get you to the site you can select and copy the site address pasting it into your browser address bar and clicking on refresh or go.
I did not see a rebuild kit. However, you can email them and ask about one. Worst case you can individually order the O Ring and other parts.
