Yes you have to take the motor off to get to most brushes. There are other things it could be so unless you find one of the brushes is burnt and charred at the end that runs on the commutator it's not them. If in doubt get an engineer in. DIY repairs can be more costly or trouble than they are worth or even dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.
