Question about 1994 Volvo 960
Generally, the AC blower in my 1994 Volvo 960 is not working. It seems to be a loose electrical connection. I say this because, sometimes, when I have to make an abrupt stop, the blower kicks in as if inertia has caused it to push forward and make some electrical contact (as best I can figure). After the car is fully stopped and inertia is no longer a factor, the blower stops again.
Has anybody else experienced this? I just want to have as much information as possible, before I go pulling out the glovebox to access the blower.
After some years, the the filters (made of foam) in the HVAC system can
become dry-rotted. Debris from the rotted foam, as well as dust, can
accumulate in various places within the system. Unfortunately, the
motor housing of the blower is one place in which the dust and debris
accumulate very well. To fix the problem, you have to remove the cover
from the blower, and vacuum clean it. The blower is behind the glove
box, on the lower right side.
A word of caution: The fan cage (which looks like a gerbil wheel) can become brittle, over the years. After cleaning out the blower motor, the blower will be able to freely spin at full speed, again. This may be too much for an old brittle fan. If your old blower can't take the force of spinning at full speed, you will hear it break apart inside its chamber. I discovered this, the hard way. After cleaning the dust and debris from my Volvo's blower motor, the blower spun at full speed and the fan broke apart. So, I had to buy and install a whole new blower.
