Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
Hot day yesterday. After driving 3 miles with AC blasting, blower quits. Recharged AC day prior (related?). Still feels like cool air oozing from vents, but no blower. What to do?
The recharge of your a/c system and this is unrelated, could be a bad blower motor or blower motor resistor, have you checked your blower motor fuse? If fuse good, check voltage at blower motor, sit under dash on passenger side, just below dash, you will be able to see it, will have two wire's going to it, only one will have voltage with switch on, if you have voltage replace it, not that hard of a job to do, shop repair time to remove and replace blower motor is .7 tenths of an hour, hope this was very helpful.

Nothing to do with the AC circuit, the problem is in the blower itself - it has failed and most likely you will have to replace it. Since accessing it implies the dismantling of the dash it's better to leave that to a shop.

Solution #2 has a higher probability rate. The resistor pack is actually a fuse that's similar to a rice cooker's thermal fuse. When it reaches it's threshold, it will blow. Soldering a new one is quite tricky, the resistor needs to be cold when you solder the leads to the pcb.
