I need to replace the blower motor -need help on the HOW TO?

I need to replace the blower motor. I know where it is, right up against the firewall and is sealed within a plastic casing. I suppose I need to
1) cut the casing as stated on the casing ''cut here for service''
2) remove screws that hold the blower motor in place
3) I also believe that there is no way I can remove the blower based on the available space. I think I will have to remove what appears to be an a/c component sitting on top of the engine overflow tank. However I am not 100% sure. I also assume I don't need to disconnect any wires except those plugged into the old blower. When removing the a/c unit it appears I can just move it out of the way once bolts are removed (I see 3 bolts holding it down).

Anyone agree after trying the same set of tasks or had a different set of tasks or recommend an alternative plan? Anything else that I need to consider and take care of not noted above? Thanks

Blower motor

I am not positive as it has been many years since I had to work on one, but I believe it is under the passenger side of the dash all the way back against the firewall.

Blower motor stopped working All summer i only had high speed on the fan motor and know it quite..People keep telling me it is a modual..

I think I'd try a new blower motor resistor first, as your going to need a new one anyway if it only ran in high speed. Look behind glove box, and under dash on passenger side and see where wires from blower motor are going back to. The connector where the blower motor wires attach to, is usually your blower resistor, held in with a couple of screws. If wires go through firewall, then look at back of engine area on firewall for it on passenger side. Everyone told me same thing, that the resistor will still supply power to motor, even if it's burned out, but mine quit after running on high for a while, and it was all I needed to replace to get everything working again. As I said, you'll need to replace it anyway right?

Need to replace ac/heater fan resistor I am not sure of the location does anyone know? Thank You

The Blower Motor Resistor is located on the passenger side firewall, not far from your A/C's H-Valve (or expansion valve), going inside of the vehicle. The blower motor resistor has a 4 or 5 way black connector plugged into it and this is the only visible portion of the Resistor you will see. Remove the wiring connector and remove the 2 or 3 screws with an 8 mm or 5/16" socket (8 mm and 5/16" are the same). Once the screws or fasteners are removed, just pull the blower motor resistor out of the firewall and if you look at it, it will have various coils of wire on it, sometimes it will show burnt coils, but you can always check the various coils with an Ohm-meter.

Aside from that, install the new Blower Motor Resistor and Voilà! Your inside Blower Motor should work just fine.

A brief note here, if your fan doesn't work when the fan switch is on High, then it's not the Blower Motor Resistor, but possibly the Blower Motor itself. Should this occur, please get back to me insofar as how to replace the blower motor and why the blower motor's wires have to be twisted...even with the new blower motor fan.

Best of Luck,

I need to replace my heater core on my 1995 Ford Ranger

Removal & Installation
Exploded view of the blower motor housing and the heater air plenum assemblies

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool down. Drain the cooling system to a level below the heater core fittings on the firewall.
  2. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes and plug hoses.
  3. Remove the five nuts that secure the blower motor housing to the firewall.
  4. Pull the housing away from the firewall. Disconnect any wire harness plugs which inhibit the housing.
  5. Remove the remaining nuts which secure the heater air plenum (inside the passenger compartment) to the firewall.
  6. In the passenger compartment, remove the instrument panel. Refer to Section 10.
  7. Pull the heater air plenum rearward from the firewall and remove it from the vehicle.
  8. Remove the heater core from the heater air plenum.
  9. Inspect all air seals on the components and firewall and replace any that are damaged.

  1. To install:
  2. Install the heater core into the air plenum chamber.
  3. Position the heater air plenum against the firewall from the passenger compartment.
  4. Under the hood, install the plenum retaining nuts.
  5. Install the blower motor housing to the firewall and install the attaching nuts.
  6. Connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes at the dash panel in the engine compartment. Do not over-tighten the hose clamps.
  7. Install the instrument panel.
  8. Check the coolant level and add coolant as required. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine and check the system for coolant leaks.

Heater is dead

My 2000 century heater blower died,dont replace the fan motor until you check with a simple test light to see if the heater fan resistor is bad first,it's only 20 bucks to replace.Its located next to the fan housing up against the firewall.The wires from the fan switch go down to the resistor, check to see if switch has power then check for power down at the resistor,I'll bet its the resistor.There are three, I think five sixteenth screws to remove the resistor one is crammed up very tight on the firewall,you'll need a quarter inch drive extension with a wobbly socket to get that one against the firewall.

The blower motor resistor is located on the back of the blower motor housing under the dash on the passenger side. It can be difficult to get at, but it is doable. Be ready with the ibuprofen the next day for your sore back. Remove the cover panel from beneath the dash on the passenger side. Unplug the power 'ribbon' wires leading to the resitor. Unplug the wires that lead from the resitor to the blower motor housing. There are usually two, one black and one purple that share the same plug. Remove the short hose that leads from the blower motor housing to the ventilation system ducts. Remove the blower motor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. Remove the resistor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. The resistor is right against the firewall so two of the screws are very difficult to reach. A slender flexible socket extension will make the job easier. Attach the new resistor in place using the same hex screws. Only 1 or 2 of the original three are needed (the part is very light) if you do not feel like fighting with the ones next to the firewall. Reatach the blower motor and reconnect the hose. Plug the power cable wires back into the resitor and the wire from the resistor back into the blower motor.
