Thats the stator winding. It may still work if the wires aren't broken.
When reinstalling it with the 3 phillips head screws down on the bottom plate you can use feeler gauge blades between the reluctor wheel (the 6 pointed star shaped thing) and the 6 pins on the stator they whiz past as the motor runs so they are spaced equally all the way around.
It's tricky done at home by hand on a table or clamped into a bench vice with wood blocks to protect the drive gear but can be done with patience.

You can see the reluctor wheel is off center and touching a stator winding pin on the right side in his picure
