Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
I am temporily laid off and have some experience working on autos. The front blower (heater/AC fan) is in need of replacement.I had it checked by a reliable mech, And he wants $300 for a new one. I oredered a used
unit for $50 and just need some assist on #1 where is under the dash?
#2 whats the best method to go forward on the RR?
I just replaced in 2001 dodge grand caravan so I'm assuming they're the same. I own a 2001 Chrylser T&C too. Open the glove box, usually you push in sides of box so it will drop down. You can see how to pop it loose and remove it altogether. The blower motor can be kicked w/ your right foot when you are seated in the passenger side. It has a plastic cover over it. Before you remove anything you can see the plug to blower once the glove box door is removed and you need to unplug the old one and plug in your used one to make sure it works. Mine was used too. I held it in my hand and turned the fan on but dont hold to the rotating wheel. There is a small motor on the tip bottom of the blower cover (smaller than a small jewelry box). It rotates a door inside, between the cover and blower. Remove about 2 screw to remove it first. Then You can remove 4 or 5 screws to remove cover. (my cover wouldnt come off and I thought I missed a screw in the back I couldnt find. I kept pulling and eventually the plastic cracked and released but appeared to be just stuck.) Be careful removing the cover b/c you might break that rotating door! Once removed you can see bottom of blower. Only about 4 screws hold it on. You can see where the plug runs thru rubber gasket and into the resistor that you plugged the replacement into earlier. Its time consuming to maneauver the blower into its spot' especially around that hanging rotating door. My resistor was bad and had melted the plug to it. I ordered it from auto zone for $25. Only 2 screws hold it in. The replacement looks nothing like the old one I removed. But it worked! Hint---to the left of the blower is a hidden door facing down that slids open and a filter slides down out of. It filters the a/c air and is to be replaced about 15k miles. Keeps it from being musky air. Do all this while your standing on your head in the floor board.
I'm a mom (loan officer) and I figured it out, so I know you can.
