Under the hood on the firewall you will find (3) bolts located between the a/c (in/out) and the heater core (in/out). Remove the nuts on the bolts and you should be able to just lift her outta there. Assuming you have removed all electrical connectors, braces, ect. The only thing left on the passenger side should be whole heating and cooling unit. ( It comes out as 1 big box). hope this helps

Heater only run on high speed


Hello Sanda.

The blower speed system on your car goes through a resistor to give various speeds.
The reason it still works on high is that when set on high it doesn't go through that resistor.

It gets direct battery voltage.
The resistor is not too expensive and easy to replace.

To replace;
  1. Open the glove box.
  2. Flex both sides of the glove box bin inward near the top far enough for the rubber glove box stop bumpers to clear the sides of the glove box opening, then roll the glove box downward.
kiltylake_143.gif
  1. Reach through the glove box opening to access and disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector for the blower motor resistor from the resistor connector receptacle.
  2. Reach through the glove box opening to access and disconnect the blower motor pigtail wire connector from the resistor connector receptacle.
  3. Remove the two screws that secure the blower motor resistor to the evaporator housing.
  4. Remove the blower motor resistor from the evaporator housing.
There you are. Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem with Replacing (front) Blower Motor in a 2001 Chrysler Voyager. It's important to know that the proces to do this changed from what it was up to the 2000 model in 2001. My mechanic said the labor...


2001 had an early and a late production design for this HVAC unit. I just did one the other day and from what you are describing you have the early design. If the recirculation door raps around the bottom of the blower than you for sure have the early design. The labor time to replace the blower motor on this design is over 6 hours. It does require the removal of the dash to remove the HVAC housing so that you can finally remove that one screw up near the firewall that you cannot get to. Believe me I tried for about 1/2 hour to get at it. I have about 60,000 dollars invested in tools and over 15 years of experience, it cannot be done without either pulling the air box or breaking the housing where that screw attaches it to the air box.
