Unhappy Problem 2001 Chrysler Van Blower Motor

2001 Chrysler Town & Country 3.3L The blower motor is bad. I have purchased one at a salvage yard and pluged it in and the new one works. I have been trying to figure out how to change it and am concerned that it will involve a cutting torch.

I have removed several screws and have gotten some movement out of the housing, but do not know if I am doing it right. It is the front Heater. Any Help is appreciated. Thanks, Bill

This is a difficult job. Usually there are screws on the engine firewall side holding it in, along with the heater core hoses and A/C lines. The A/C needs to be purged and disconnected.

I have been told by a HVAC mechanic tht it is possible to drop it from behind the glove box. He wouldn't tell Me how, but said it could be done. Thanks, Bill

Are you using a Chiltons or Haynes manual? These books are generic, but if you want a more in depth repair guide, go to www.alldatadiy.com and subscribe to there service for your specific vehicle. It's $24 for the first vehicle, but the subscription will pay for it's self in labor costs.

I am not using any manual, just trying to figure it out. I have been able to find the last screw to drop the air housing, now to find my 1/4" swivel and get it on the screw head with 5/16" socket. Then there are 3 screws holding blower and fan in. Bill

The secret to changing the blower motor out is to find the hidden screw next to the firewall straight behind the pigtail grommet for the motor. If You take it out first before any weight is added to housing, You can take screws loose and drop fan motor and squirrel cage fan out the bottom. The new one works great. Bill
