if you have manual control climate control then the system has a blower motor resistor . if you have automatic climate control then the system has a blower motor speed control. in eather case the part is under the dash in the heater box. depending on the system you have, buy the part and then look under the dash for like part, you will half to remove the under dash panels to be able to see. the part will be on the heater box somewhare.

Look under the dash on passenger side and just to the left of the blower motor housing you will see the 4WD control module.Remove the 2 screws holding the module and let it hang down and your resistors are behind this.Remove the 2 screws holding the resistors and remove.
Now I am assuming you have manual climate control and not electonic.

SOURCE: blower on a 2006 ford explorer
Absolutely it is possible.
Check out the details and parts costs for an SVT Cobra Mustang.
That blower will work and will make your Explorer VERY happy.

prob 19e, it is the controller found this for ya on another site...
There are two possibilities.
One. Your A/C controller (headunit, the thing mounted in your dash) is bad. This is the "master controller" so to speak for your AC system. it could be bad, and thus sending the "full on" or "high" signal to your fan speed module, regardless of the setting.
Two. Your fan speed module (which I have recently had the joy of replacing) is bad. The fan is connected to 12V, and the module varies the resistance in the ground circuit according to the command from the module. (using a FET, if anyone cares) I did an autopsy on mine, and discovered that there is a relay inside for high operation. It could be stuck, or some other part (like that FET, which stands for "field effect transistor") of the module could be defective. My money's on the module - especially if you can turn your headunit off and the fan still runs. The headunit sends only a control signal to the module.
The problem is diagnosis. The module is difficult to replace, and the head unit is expensive.
My recomendation is to either take it to the dealer to get it diagnosed or, if you want to do it yourself:
1. buy a module - I recommend sending a PM to "The Dealer," otherwise known as Ray - he's a great guy and very helpful with Marauder parts. Or, contact your dealer's parts dept. I happen to have my receipt handy:
part number: 8W7Z-19E624-A.
Don't bother to remove your module, just disconnect it from it's harness. It's directly behind the passenger side cylinder bank, with a %%$##!!!! heater hose in the way. Plug in the new module. The aluminum heatsink (finned piece of metal, you can's miss it) will get warm, and even hot if you leave your fan on low for a while. Don't set it on anything plastic. Try your AC fan, but don't run it too long. if it's ok, you can either pay your favorite mechanic to change it, or, drain your cooling system, remove said heater hose, and replace the module.
I had to remove the spark plug cover, and move the rubber strain relief for the coil wires out of my way to get my wrench on the screws to remove the module. You may have a different wrench and not have to do that. The strain relief is a hard rubber plug, and is quite large, and, in my case, was in just the wrong place.
If the module does not fix it, you're only out about 40 bucks, and you'll have a spare for when your module DOES go out. (chances are it will) Then, find a headunit and change it.
If you have access to a spare headunit, by all means, try that first, because it is much easier to change. Don't worry about the vacuum lines during diagnosis, just plug in the new one electrically and test the fan.
