NOTE: The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the instrument panel. The blower motor can be removed from the vehicle without having to remove the HVAC housing.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the passenger side cowl trim panel.
  3. Position the carpet to access the front upper screw that secures the air inlet housing.
  4. Remove the recirculation door actuator.
  5. Disconnect the blower motor wire lead connector from the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
    1. Remove the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing.
    2. Remove the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and remove the lower HVAC housing.
    3. Push the rubber grommet through the opening in the lower air inlet housing.
    4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and remove the lower air inlet housing from the vehicle.
    5. Position the recirculation-air door as necessary to access and remove the three screws that secure the blower motor to the lower half of the HVAC housing.
    6. Gently flex the recirculation air door downward to gain access to remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing. NOTE: To aid in installation, note the position of the blower motor mounting tabs prior to removal
      1. Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing by rotating and tilting the blower motor as necessary.
      INSTALLATION

      1. Gently flex the recirculation-air door downward to gain access to install the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
      2. Position the blower motor to the HVAC housing and tilt and rotate the blower motor as necessary to install it into the HVAC housing.
      3. Align the blower motor mounting tabs to the locations noted during removal and install the three screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and seat the rubber grommet.
      5. Position the recirculation door pivot shaft into the lower air inlet housing and install the inlet housing.
      6. Install the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and the lower HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      7. Install the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing. Tighten the screw to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      8. Connect the blower motor wire lead connector to the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
      9. Install the recirculation door actuator.

Unplug the power feed to the motor and turn on the switch. If it blows the fuse you have a short in the wiring you will need to repair. If the fuse does not blow then the motor is bad, change it. I woulld connect the new motor , groiund it and see if it works before I put it all back together. .

I have to hit under the dash for blower motor to work what is wrong with the blower motor


Check for loose connector/connection first. It may be a short in the motor or bearings seizing up . Does it squeal when running ?

Blower motor


This does sound like the bearings in the motor, depending on the model of the truck it could be from awkward to extremely difficult to change as it is usually buried deep behind the dash. Maybe something to entrust to a good independent garage.

Blower fan squeels when blower is on and fan only works when on high. How do you lube it? 1993 Cherokee Sport 4X4


You cannot lube the motor as it is sealed for life. The reason it only works on high is either that the motor is defective or the blower motor resistor pack is defective. As the motor is squealing, which is an indication that the bearings are failing, I would recommend you replace the blower motor and see if it still only runs on high. If so, then replace the resistor pack.

How do I replace blower motor in a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It works, it makes a loud squeal when it's running.


Sounds like the bearings are going bad in it. It's very simple to replace. There are three torx screws that hold it into place. Move the passenger side seat all the way back and put your head under the dash behind the glovebox. You should be able to see the three screws. Remove the screws, unplug the wiring harness to the motor, and give the blower motor a twist and it should come right out. I did this same replacement with a blower motor I got off of ebay a month ago. It's an easy fix taking between a half hour and an hour. Good luck

My blower motor has been squealing on the highest setting and now there is nothing on any setting. How do I repair this problem.


You'll need to replace the blower motor. The squealing was the last of the lubricatioin leaving the bearings. (Generic instructions) You'll be able to remove this fairly easily by removing just a few bolts/screws, and maybe a cover, and the plug in. Depending on where you buy the new blower motor, some come with the fan attached or you'll just have to switch the fan from the old motor to the new motor & just put it back in & plug it up.

When the old one is removed, you'll be able to see how the bearings have lost their ability to work properly by rotating the shaft. I would suggest bypassing the switches & such, but based upon the age & noise that should be a waste of time.

I looked, 45.00 on eBay Free S&H. w/fan attached no core charge.

You may want to change the blower motor as a precaution.
Do all the fan speeds work?
If not .....change the fan resistor board which is right beside the fan at the same time you change the blower fan motor.

Ac will work for rear but not front will not blow


Check fuses and/or blower motor. Try tapping on blower motor while key on. Listen for squealing sound. If it squeals, it may be blower motor is no good. (Front and back a/c has two different motors and controls.)
