Required skill level: Novice
List of tools that you'll need:
Doing the disconnection
Before working on the vehicle, make sure that you separate the cable that's linked to the negative battery terminal. Use a socket wrench to do so. Disconnecting this will give you a chance to clean the negative terminal post, as well as the battery cable end; make sure you use the wire brush to clean them. After, separate the wiring harness or any wires from beneath the blower motor. Take note that the back faces the front side of the engine compartment.
Removing the previous A/C blower motor
Locate the blower motor screws that secure the A/C blower motor inside the heater case. Take note that the screws are not visible and you need to feel the screw heads to locate them. Take out the blower motor from the heater case and remove the blower wheel from the motor shaft. This can be achieved by squeezing the clamp. With this technique, the blower wheel can easily be taken out of the shaft.
Installing a new A/C blower motor
Set up the blower wheel on the new brand new motor shaft. Make sure to place the blower motor with the screws that you removed from the previous step. Attach the wires to the blower motor and place the negative battery right back in. And with that, your job is complete!
