In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the AC and heater fan motor on this 2004 Dodge Ram. Generally if your fan just stops working, that's usually a sign that the blower motor has burnt out. Also, please just check your fuse beforehand before you go replacing the blower motor. If you just lose a speed or two, in your fan, that's your resister, and check out our other video for that.
The only tool you'll need is either a T20 torx driver or an 8mm socket and ratchet.

Your fan is right here just inside the passenger door at the passenger's feet. It's right down here. It's held in by T20 torx screws. Okay. I'll speed up going through this. They actually are, also, 8mm bolts, so you could use an 8mm socket with a ratchet and extension. All right. Then the motor comes down. Just push on your kick panel a little bit. It comes down, and then here is your lead. Push nice and firm right there. Pull it out. And the motor's out.

Here's our original fan. New fan from 1A Auto. You can see everything's all the same. The new fan from 1A Auto is just newer, and it's going to work for you. So all the same. You can see that the connections are exactly the same. It's going to bolt in, hook up, and work just fine.
So the first thing I'm going to do is take my lead, and just kind of make sure it's really out of my way. Then just put the fan up in here. It's got kind of a triangle over on that side that goes kind of towards the inside of the vehicle and towards the front. Put it up in. Start my easiest screw here first.

And we'll speed it up here, as we just feed the other two screws in, and then tighten them up with our torx driver, and again you can use an 8mm socket and ratchet with extension if you want to. Then you tighten them up firm. They don't have to be extremely tight. You are just going into plastic. And then plug in our lead. Turn on our key. Working well.

We hope this helps you out. Brought to you by, your source for quality replacement parts, and the best service on the internet. Please feel free to call us toll free, 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the internet and in person.
