They are side-specific.

Just rebuilt it. Cheap & easy to do.

Yes, you can make it fit on the other side. Take the shaft and large gear out of the right side motor. In one case half, there's a round plug that sits at the back end of the shaft. Knock it out and press it into the opposite case half. Using the shaft from the shaft and gear from the drivers side, insert it into the motor. You will need to take the large winding out of the case and rotate it 180 degrees so the motor doesn't run backwards.

If by 'going bad' you mean that the gear stripped, then this won't be the solution. You will need to replace the gear. If the gears in the right side motors are good you can remove them and install them on the left side motor shaft.
