You can desolder the PCB, but you need to know which is positive and which is negative or it’ll run backwards; motors do not care, but reversed polarity will result in reverse operation. That looks like a pretty standard motor to me just from how it looks. If you can get the dimensions of it from the specific part number, finding a replacement won’t be hard. Just be careful how you remove the drive gear on the motor or you may break it.
