My blower motor fan was making a very loud noise so I decided to replace it. Bought a used oem fan from ebay for less than $40 shipped
Time: Less than 15 min.
8mm socket wrench
Clip puller(makes life much easier) or flathead screwdriver
Remove 3 plastic clips under glove box
Trim and Clips puller set from harbor freight cost me 5.99 on sale. Makes life so much easier
The Panel Comes off
Unclip the electrical connector going to the blower. Use socket wrench to remove 3 8mm bolts on the blower itself. One is recessed but you shouldnt have trouble finding it by feeling. The blower fan unit comes out.
Left: Old Right: Replacement
Left: Replacement Right: Old
Overall, I'm very happy at how it turned out. Not really sure why the old blower motor malfunctioned so fast but it was a quick and easy job. The dealer wanted to charge me $300 to do it. lol
Anyone wanna buy my old blower motor? it makes a nice turbo like sound when operating! ;]
