ComponentBlower Motor .......................................... Below right side of I/P
this is not an easy job
the complete hvac unit will need to be removed
1. Discharge refrigerant from A/C system. Refer to operating instructions of your refrigerant recovery/recycling/charging station for proper procedures. 2. Disconnect inlet and outlet pipe from evaporator. NOTE: Immediately plug all open fittings to keep moisture out of system. 3. Remove cover and drain hose. 4. Remove instrument panel and disconnect wiring harness connector. See: Dashboard / Instrument Panel
5. Remove blower unit.INSTALLATION 1. Install in reverse order of removal. 2. Evacuate refrigerant system. Refer to operating instructions of your refrigerant recovery/recycling/charging station for proper procedures. 3. Charge A/C system.
You mean you have to open the refrigerant system to access the motor?
I'm not sure the motor is bad, is there any way I can check it without removing it?
you must remove the a/c tubing to get the hvac module out
give me just a moment
i may have some test for you
you may want to check the blower relay
a common problem is the blower motor resister
to get to the motor connector does it still required disassembling the entire I/P
you should be able to unplug it from up under the dash,,,,without removing it
And that would be located near the steering column or where
behind the glove box?
last year a mechanic replaced the switch for the blower, but it didn't last very long, does that shed any light on my problem?
the problem may be the resister,,but no way of knowing if the motor itself is good without testing it first
ok I'll give it a shot tomorrow and is if I can locate the motor connector.
you will see it
so when I remove the glove compartment it should be to the left or right or straight behind it?
just look up under the dash
you may not need to remove the glove box
