SOURCE: 95 dodge dakota heater blower not working

It has been a long time since I've replaced one of those. From what I remember you don't have to go through pulling the heater box out. You do need to remove the glove box assembly. Look up under the passenger side of the dash. If you see the bulge of the motor/cover hanging straight down then remove the cover and the motor will be there. If you don't see that then te motor is mounted horizonally. If that is the case then the fresh air door assembly will need to be removed and it is behind that.
Here is a quick check to see if the motor is bad. Thump the bottom of the heater box by the passenger's feet. if the motor comes alive or makes noise then it is bad. Also check the fuse and make sure that it doesn't work on any speed. (the resistor would prevent operation on only one speed or more but generally not all speeds)

How do I get to the blower motor for a 1995 dodge Dakota to replace it ?


Bad design on the 1995 Dodge Dakota. The dash has to be removed to replace the blower motor. May want to replace the heater core while the dash is out to keep from having to remove it later for a leaking heater core.

2000 dakota heater core replace. does top heater box cover come off , and do a/c lines have to be removed to do this job?


The hardest part is taking the dash out. Then you have to evacuate the AC system, and remove the box. Then you can open the box, and change the heater core. It's a pretty big job. 8 hours as a DIY

Can I replace a heater core in a 2000 dodge dakota without taking the entire box out? please post a pic or vid.


no not on this one. The dash will need to be remover or pulled back about a foot. Then you will need to disconnect the heater and a/c hoses going into the firewall. Remove the box and split in half. one side will hold your heater core and the other is the evaporator.

Have wet drivers floor, believe heater core leak


1st make sure it's the heater core. Usually it's the passenger side that is wet. To confirm it's the heater core, 1. do you smell antifreeze? It has a sweet smell, and should be easy to notice it if leaking. 2. Do have a problem with the windows fogging up, and turning on the defroster doesn't help or makes it worse? If the core is leaking, the moisture from the leak will fog up the windows, and the defrost mode struggles to clear the glass, as moisture is blown up the vents onto the glass. If 1 and 2 don't exist, the water on the drivers side is most likely a leak from rain along the door gasket, or windshield, or firewall.
