I replaced the blower motor on my 98 and no, you don't have to pull the dash. You need to get under the dash so you will be pulling out the glove box. From there you start removing the screws on the blower motor housing (big round plastic piece) and then unhook the electrical connections and then the motor. Before you do all that, what have you done to confirm it's the motor? Does it only blow on one speed? If so, it may not be the motor but an easier fix - the resistor.

Hope you've been doing a few crunches to build up the abdominal muscles as it's a tight fit to get into this area and it takes a few contortions to work in there.

    I forgot to mention that with regard to the rear remote vent, you will need to pull the trim off. If you've done this before, you'll know that that entails. If not, and you tend to be a bit rough on things, go to the parts store and get a trim stick. They will know what that is. Use it around the edges of the trim to pull the plastic and loosen the panels. If I remember correctly, you will need to pull the rear door sill first, then the overhead trim that runs along the back entrance and then the large panel on the driver's side (after putting the rear seat back down and removing the jack storage door)

    Before pulling the panels: 1)look at how they overlap and let that be your guide. 2). Note the placement of the door seal so you know what goes over what and you avoid leaks after you've put everything back.

How hard is it to replace a front ac blower motor on a 2009 ford flex

You just have to be careful with the trim panels that Need removed. First remove right sill plate trim ( bottom of door opening ). Then remove lower a-trim. Remove two lower dash panel pin-type retainers and the lower dash panel insulator. The blower should be visible now. Remove blower motor electrical connector. Depress two retaining tabs on the vent tube between heater core housing and blower. Be careful tithe tube is only available as part of the hole heater core box. Turn the blower counterclockwise to remove from box

My AC and Heater blower isn't working in the front vents of my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica what is the problem

If the air blows out of all of your other vents then you have either had an actuator go bad which controls which ducts the air flows through, or the shaft that has the "flap" on it has popped loose and no longer moves which will only allow air to go to the vents that are not locked. The easiest way to find out would be to get under the dash and start at the fan and trace air flow til you find the problem.

I have a 99 dodge durango 5.9 there is barely any air coming out of any of my front vents. rear vents ok can feel it out the floor and defrost just not the ones on the dash.

The Dodge Durangos are known for blower motor problems. The blower motor is under the glove compartment/dash in the big black box, and so is the evaporator coil. There is a outside air filter that tends to wear out and break apart. Once this material breaks apart it ends up in the blower motor and can cause the motor to stop turning, or turn slower than normal. You will need to open the blower motor compartment under the dash and clean out any obstructions/trash and check the motor if it spins freely without much resistance. If it resists turning by hand or there is no trash and it still fails to work, you will need to replace this blower motor.

If the motor spins freely and there is no trash, you may just have a bad blower motor resistor or A/C control switch/panel.

I have an 03 Chrysler T & C. The blower motor runs on high and I cannot adjust the fan speed. If I turn the heater off, the vent fan runs. In other words, I cannot turn off the heat. I can adjust...

You have a bad blower motor resistor. It is located right behind your in-dash passenger-side glove box, and is bolted to the heating duct with 2 8mm hex screws. The replacement part usually runs about $85, but if you have a soldering gun and some handyman skills, you can replace the bad component (called a "mosfet") on the circuit board itself for about $2. The mosfet is basically a fancy resistor that allows you to control the blower speed by lowering the voltage that passes through it. It can be found at: , part number 511-STP85NF55. Once you have the part removed from the van, you can locate the bad resistor right next to the aluminum heatsink. It's not only soldered to the circuit board, it's also glued & held tight to the heatsink by a metal clip. Good luck!

1999 Chev Venture Heater core do I need to remove Dash to replace?

The blower motor location can change from year-to-year. It can also change with the trim level of the vehicle. A vehicle that has front and rear climate controls may be configured differently than a vehicle that has front controls only. The following are two different repair procedures. One is for blower motors located and accessed in the engine compartment, the other is for blower motors mounted inside the vehicle.


Engine Compartment Mounted
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the engine air cleaner assembly.
  3. If necessary for clearance, remove the left hand wiper arm linkage.
  4. Detach the wire harness connector from the blower motor.
  5. Disconnect the motor cooling hose.
  6. Remove the blower motor assembly retaining screws
  7. Carefully pull the blower motor assembly out from the firewall.

How to replace heater core in a 1988 jeep cherokee?

Jeep Cherokee XJ Heater Core

Work for '92 models, but can use it like a reference guide.


Figure 1

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable, then drain cooling system.
  2. Disconnect hoses from heater core.
  3. If equipped with A/C, remove evaporator/blower housing as follows:
    1. Discharge A/C system, then disconnect hoses from expansion valve.
    2. Disconnect electrical connector and vent tube from blower motor.
    3. Remove console, if equipped.
    4. Remove lower instrument panel attaching screws, then the lower panel.
    5. Disconnect electrical connections from A/C relay, blower motor resistors and A/C thermostat.
    6. Disconnect vacuum hose from vacuum motor.
    7. Cut evaporator/blower housing to heater core housing retaining strap, then disconnect heater control cable.
    8. Pry retaining clip from rear of blower housing flange, then remove the three retaining screws.
    9. Working from engine compartment, remove evaporator/blower housing attaching nuts, then the evaporator drain tube, Figure 1.
    10. Remove right kick panel, then the instrument panel support bolt.
    11. Pull right side of dash outward, then rotate housing downward and towards rear of vehicle until studs clear dash panel. Remove housing from vehicle.
  4. Remove heater core to housing retaining screws, then the heater core, Figure 2.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.

Figure 2

Personally, I'd pressure test the cooling system then look at the heater core to see if it leaks. It may just be a loose clamp or leaky hose.

Location of the blower motor control module

The module is located in the ducting for the heater and is accessed from the passenger area of the front seat. I think it is just under the dash but you may have to remove the glove box. it is a rectangular item held in with four screws. and should have two connectors going to it. You have to be sure to get the right replacement if you r replacing it.

Durango vent blower fan

The blower motor resistors are known for going bad. Usually its because the blower starts drawing too much current. What I would recommend doing if you can and have the tools, is to check the blower motor connector to make sure 12 volts is present. If so than I would recommend replacing the blower motor resistor. Then if the same issue ever happens again and the blower motor resistor is bad again, you will need to replace the blower motor and the blower resistor as the final repair.
Here is some info about testing the resistor using a multimeter it you have one:

Both the front blower motor resistor and the optional rear heater-A/C unit blower motor resistor can be diagnosed using the procedure that follows. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to Air Conditioning/Heater in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor block.
  3. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor block or blower motor as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resistor block.
Here is the information on replacing the resistor:

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. From the passenger foot well area, remove the two hex screws used to secure the blower motor resistor.
  3. Unplug the front blower motor resistor from the wire harness connector.
  4. Remove the front blower motor resistor from the HVAC unit.
Here is an exploded view of the HVAC box. The resistor is #63 in the picture and the actual part may appear slightly different:

If any issues such as no voltage at blower connector or damaged or melted connector at the resistor then let me know.
