The items you'll need for this repair include: 8mm socket, ratchet, socket extension

Your fan's located on the passenger side, right up over where your feet would be. There are two 8 millimeter bolts that you need to remove to get some harnesses out of the way: one here, and then to get this bubble, for lack of a better word, out of the way, there's also one over here. We'll take those out.

Disconnect your lead. Just pull the tab back and down, and then pull on the lead itself. And then three more 8 millimeter screws hold it: one here, one here, and then one back in here, which is hard to see for me. Right there.

I'm going to take this last one out. Let it fall down. I always leave the closest to the easiest one for last. Original part from our Explorer, new part from 1A Auto. You can see they're exactly the same. Gasket just needs to be pressed down in here. Before installation you may want to use just a little bit of glue to glue the gasket in, make sure it stays in place. But the cage is identical.

Everything's identical, and connectors are all the same. It's going to go in, mount, and if your blower motor has failed, a new one from 1A Auto's going to fix the problem.

Stick it up in, and just get it around your harnesses. Pop it in here. And then, this, you can just kind of turn once it's up in there somewhat. There is a locating pin here, so make sure it goes up in and start your screws in. Do the two easy ones first. Just make sure on the back that nothing's pinched up in there. You then tighten them up. Put this canister back in place, bolt it in and tighten it up. And put the screw up through. Don't forget to plug in your lead.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
