    I have removed the motor unit but find it is encased with some kind of plastic outer shell. Is there a way to remove the plastic outer shell in a way that I can reuse it to put the new motor in?

How to replace a 2008 toyota prius blower motor


remove the bottom glove box. First open all the way. On the right side there is an attachment to an air shock. Support the glove box and pull the black ring attached to the glove box. On the left and right sides of the glove box you have plastic tabs that keep the glove box from falling out. Push them in simultaneously and pull gently in a downward direction until the glove box comes loose. Gently lift the backside of the glove box while slowly pulling towards you and the glove box should come out freely. This exposes the cabin air filter near the top and a black or grey foam pre-filter near the bottom. If you remove the cabin air filter you can see the blower motor inside. This is as far as I have gotten as I haven't found any instructions myself, but I think you need to pullout the pre-filter face plate and you might have to go underneath and remove the cover that is easy to remove. It is just snapped in so just pull edges slowly and remove the under cover. That will expose the blower motor resister that is plugged in at the bottom. You might have to remove the frame that holds in this component. I will revise when I get my new blower and install it.

your circuit is simple--I will paste it below. suspect the blower has shorted and caused the switch to burn up. remove the blower and hotwire it to the battery to see if it works. If not, replace the blower. Then run continuity tests on the swoitch and replace switch if bad. If you have questions, please let me know. Here is procedure for taking blower out:


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION With Air Conditioning

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the glove compartment door and glove compartment by removing the retaining screws and bolts. Push the sides of the glove box in to free the drawer from dash panel.

  4. Remove the retaining screws securing the ducting around the blower motor.
  5. Remove the clip securing the blower motor fan blade to the motor arm. Remove the fan blade from the motor.
  6. Remove the blower motor mounting plate from the evaporator case by unscrewing the retaining screws.
  7. Rotate the motor until the mounting plate clears the edge of the glove compartment opening and remove the motor.
  8. Remove the wire harness from the rear of the motor.
  9. Inspect the fan blade for broken edges or cracks. Replace if needed.

To install:
  1. Connect the wire harness to the rear of the blower motor.
  2. Install the motor into the case and secure with the retaining screws.
  3. Position and fasten the fan blade to the blower motor arm. Secure with the clip.

  5. Install the instrument panel at the lower right hand side if removed earlier.
  6. Install the glove compartment door and glove compartment.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Run blower motors to make the motor works correctly.
Without Air Conditioning
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the right ventilator assembly.
  3. Remove the hub clamp spring from the blower wheel hub. Pull the blower wheel from the blower motor shaft.
  4. Remove the blower motor flange attaching screws located inside the blower housing.
  5. Pull the blower motor out from the blower housing (heater case) and disconnect the blower motor wires from the motor.

To install:

2005 Toyota Corolla. Bought it from a guy that lives in the country. Took apart ac cabin filter today and found LOTS of mouse or rat stuff. Vac a bunch out and got a new filter...now ac is making a loud...


removal of the blower motor is quite easy. you can access it from the passenger foot area. remove the glove box by removing the limit rod screw and squeezing the sides of the glove box together to remove. You can now better visualize the area. remove a few plastic clips that hold an electronics shelf and move it aside. remove the electrical connection to the blower ( take note of orientation of plug so that you put the motor back in the correct position) remove three screws that hold the blower in place. Pull blower assembly down. clean or replace blower. Rockauto.com sells a complete blower and fan assembly for very little $.

My fan only blows in the 4 and 5 speed mode


Auto Zone sell the blower motor resistor pack for the manually controlled fan speed for $28 (they may also have the automatic or climate control types, too). I did this job myself in less than 30 minutes with a flashlight and simple hand tools. You might have to get into a slightly awkward position to see & remove / reinstall the screws that hold the resistor pack in place under the dashboard.

1) Remove the two screws from the plastic cover under the glove box & disconnect / remove electrical connectors secured to the cover. Set the cover aside.

2) Empty the glove box of the contents.

3) With the glove box open, push the clip on rear of the left side of the glove box towards the firewall to allow it to fall forward.

4) Remove the electrical connector from the blower motor located to the right of the glove box opening.

5) Pull the connector and cable downward tot he floor. There is a thick rubber band that may be holding the cable - pull it away to slide the cable out easily.

6) Close the glove box.

7) Look upward - close to the firewall to follow the cable removed in a previous step (a flashlight can help out here). It enters a plastic part held in place with two screws. There is also a narrow electrical connector on this plastic part.

8) Disconnect the narrow electric connector by pulling it straight downward.

9) Remove the two screws that hold the plastic part in place.

10) Allow the part to fall / gently pry away from surface.

11) Reinstall in reverse order.

The part is Duralast #DR755 shown below:

This is usually caused by a failing fan motor resistor. The resistors allow changes the speed of the fan. If one or more fail, certain speeds become unavailable.

How to replace under dash blower motor 98 Buick Regal


The blower motor is vertically mounted below the glovebox on the passenger side. To replace the motor, follow these basic steps. It's actually very simple when you figure out how to contort your body so you can work on it.
You need to remove the bolster cover under the glovebox. To do so, just slowly pull the bolster out from the sides of the passenger side until you come to a plastic, one way connector. (Kinda looks like this -->) |>>>> They are ribbed and impossible to pull out. Take some wire cutters or diagonal cutters and clip the plastic connectors. They are cheap connectors that you can buy for $0.50 a bag at any auto supply shop. When you work your way through the connectors, remove the bolster and the blower motor cage should be visible. It will be lodged behind a mass of wires, and you won't have much room to move in. Look/feel for an electrical connector on the back side of the blower motor and try to seperate that first. If it is too tight, take off the mounting hardware first and see if that gives you more room. There should be three or four nuts securing the blower motor to the base behind the glovebox. Remove these and the motor should simply fall downward. You will have to adjust the wiring to pull it entirely out, but it shouldn't take long. Simply wiggle the new one in the same way you got the old one out. There may not be the same number of mounting screws or they may not line up exactly like the old ones, but it should fit in a particular position. Try rotating it.
When the motor is back in and the screws are back. Test it out and try all the speeds. If everything is working. Take an old plastic connector to a autostore and find matching ones. Reapply the bolster and snap some fresh connectors into the holes. That's all there is to it.

How do i remove interior door panel & trim


Answer There is a small black plastic piece that surrounds your door handle. You MUST take that off, I find a small flat tip screw driver works best. The plastic cover that goes on the inside part of the door where your mirror is should be removed, makes it a lot easier to remove door trim: No screws on that part just grab from both sides and pull. 3 screws on bottom and 1 screw inside the armrest. The window crank, easiest way tried and true, shoestring, pull handle towards inside of car until you have enough room to fit the shoestring between crank and plastic washer. Give it a pull back and forth and it'll pop right off; clip should stick to shoestring as an added bonus.

Removal of interior door pannel on left rear door


Normal 0 Quite simple. Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

How to audi 5000


I've had this done and did it myself more than once. The correct way, takes all day and is not easy. My bud Larry showed me a quick way, it isn't pretty but gets the job done in about an hour. Take off the pas. wiper  arm. remove the plastic cover over your climate control unit. Drivers side you need to use a snap ring pliers (90 degree works best) unplug blower, pull off washer, push the blower in with your thumb. On the other side you'll see 3 screws in a white plastic reducer up against the ccu. take them out. With an instrument of destruction Saws all, hack saw blade, hot knife, cut the black ring all the way across (end to end) curl it inside the white thing you took the screws out of. pull it up and out. This part varies, pull the blower out of the space you just made. some times it'll squese out, sometimes you need to get the IOD cut area out of ccu so blower motor will make it out unharmed. Now replace blowers brushes or put new one back in, put plastic all back the way it was adding duct tape or better to seal. Try not to use smelly stuff that never dries.. ;)
