Hello, remove the blower motor by unplugging it and removing the 3 bolts that hold it in plae. Inspect the squirrel cage fan blade on the motor for debris or being broken. If this looks ok, inspect the ac box where the motor goes in for a broken air mode door which may be blocking the air flow off the motor. If a door is broken it will need to be repaired by removing the dash and the ac/heater case and disassemble the box to replace the door.

Okay, thanks. I didn't know the way in there.

Under the right side of the dash below the glove box is where you want to get to the blower motor. If you need more help or information please let me know. If I was helpful, please use the 5 stars above to leave a positive rating and I will get credit for helping you

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
