There will be an output shaft from the engine, that is linked to the blade assembly. Turn both slowly manually - The place where motion stops is the area that the shear bolt goes through.
This may be a pulley on a shaft, or more likely a larger shaft with a smaller shaft inside it. Look for holes either side of a tube - with a solid shaft inside. Once you have found the location - the old shear bolt may need to be tapped out with a pin drift. Rotate the shaft untill you see it.

The best way to look for it - is to design it yourself - where would you locate it?

Window won't go up or down but motor it working.

Since you obviously don't mind getting deep into the problem... try this, I have, depending on the vehicle, have found that the welds and or nuts and bolts can shear off where the motor and assembly is attached to the door, and a solution for that involves new welds and significant paint touch-up; compare the problem window to one of your other windows a big mirror will help you see the good window's components. I hope the welds are not your problem.

2007 HYUNDAI TIBURON HEAT goes ON and OFF. My daughter's car's heater/defroster/vent (whichever is dialed to on) gets HOT then goes to FREEZING COLD. Can't defrost! Snow is on the way. Any suggestions...

Check the coolant level, with the heater on full blast. Look for air bleeds that look like brake bleeder screws, high on the engine and hoses...

Feel the heater hoses when the heat goes away, and verify fluid flow. but my thought is that you are low on water, and when the thermostat opens, the heater suffers lack of fluid...

I have sheared one of four stud bolts that hold the motor fan on my York air condition unit. This is the outside compressor unit- central air. I bought a length of threaded rod to repair this bolt....

Hi, To give you an answer, no it doesn't take anything special to repair the condenser fan motor. This key stock you bought will work just fine as long as you can use it ok. Those outside studs tend to rust as they are in the weather year around, so I would cover it unless it is a heat-pump which runs year around. If not, you can cover it to keep the leaves and debris out of it. Just about any grade of threaded rod will be fine.

We have a Intertherm MAC 1378 gas furnace in out mobile home and it has shut off on us. There is still gas coming in, we checked the meter outside to be sure. But when we try to reignite the pilot light it...

Check to make sure the roof vent is not covered over with snow.
Very deep snow can block the intake to the furnace. You may need a ladder and a broom (or shovel) to clear the snow.
Hope this helps.
