You knock the seal and races out with a drift. You put the new races and seals in by using something round, like a socket, to drive them in. Of course, the experts will say you must have special seal drivers and bearing race drivers, but I've been fixing my Fords for 40 years and I have done several of these with what I had laying around.

We have a 1990 Ford aerostar minivan and the blower motor isn't working. I don't know where the resistor is or where the blower motor is located. Anyone know?


Blower motor is in dashboard. Problem could be with motor windings, bearings, fuse, relay, and switch. Check them all out.

1997 Ford Aerostar...rattle in front wheels...rattle stops when I step on the brakes... Also...vibration when I accelerate and when I slow down.


Hello, it sounds like you have a possible wheel bearing or brake problem. first support the van on jackstands and shake the front tires, if you feel alot of play in the wheel bearings they may need to be tightened up, this is done by using a torque wrench to set the bearing load, if you need to get the torque sequence it can be found in the repair manuals at auto parts stores. if you shake the wheels and it feels tight with no excessive play it may be a brake issue, you need to look at the backing plate to make sure it isnt rubbing on the rotor.

The wheel bearing assy is pressed into the hub---you need to remove the front hub assy and take it to a parts store that has a machine shop----or you go to a salvage yard and buy a used hub and install it--way easier...
