Hey friends, it's Len here at 1A Auto. Today, I'm working on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, and I'm going to be replacing the blower motor. It's going to be very simple and you can do it too. If you need this or any other part. You can always check us out Thanks.

Okay, so I took out the glove box just so you can see what's going on down there, because getting underneath here at the same time as I'm underneath there is going to be a little difficult for the camera guy. Just a heads up, you don't need to take out the glove box to do the blower motor. While this is underneath the dash, it's going to be sitting just like this, but I'm going to turn it like this so I can show you. You've got a mounting hole here, there, here. Those are Torx bits, 25s.

You also have an electrical connector right here. To do that, you just grabbed right here with your thumb, wiggle it, pull down your electrical connector, and then you take out your three mounting bolts. This will drop right out. Okay, so I'm going to go under here and do it. You're not going to really be able to see much of anything, so I wanted to just quickly explain it to you. Grab the push connector, give it a little wiggle. There's our connector. Look around for any colors, any corrosion. Rainbow colors inside of electrical connectors are very bad, could come from moisture or something like that.

Now I'm going to use my Torx bit 25, remove these little, there we are, little screws. Once you break them free, generally speaking, you should be able to spin it out by hand because they just screw into plastic so they're really not torqued in or anything. Screw number two looks exactly the same as the first. I don't have to worry about mixing those up, that's nice. Screw number three, same as the other two. Easy peasy. I'm going to grab my blower motor, give it a little wiggle, pull it right out of here. Blower motor. For the head on these bolts, you can use something as basic as a flathead, so you got the long slash there. You can you use the T25, which is what I used to remove it. Or you can also use an 8 millimeter socket. Any of those three we'll remove these bolts.

Here we are friends, a quick product comparison for you. Over here, we have our blower motor out of our 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, just removed it. Over here, we have our brand new quality 1A Auto part. Your blower motor comes with a brand new cage, which is very important. A lot of times you'll get these and they'll just come with the bottom assembly. You have to take the cage off of your old one and then mount it on there, and of course they break. Ours comes with a brand new cage, which is great. It comes balanced, so you know you're not going to get too much of a hum coming out of that. That's nice. Don't have to worry about it vibrating and wobbling. It's got your electrical connector down here, and of course your three mounting holes. With all that said, I don't see any reason why this isn't a quality part to install on the vehicle, so I'm going to go ahead and do it. If you need this or any other part, you can always check us out Thanks.

Okay, so we have our brand new blower motor down here. We're going to come underneath the dash, line it up with the holes, slide it in, just like that. Very nice. We'll take our three mounting bolts, there we go, come on. Nice. I'm not going to tighten any of them up until I get all three of them started, and then once they're all in, I'll go ahead with the electrical connector. I'm going to do the electrical connector last, just in case the blower motor decides it wants to come down for some reason. I don't have to worry about it putting a tug on my harness.

I'm going to start with tightening the one that's farthest away from me/the hardest to get to. That one's definitely going in. All right, all three of them are going in so I'm just going to go ahead and tighten this up. I'm just screwing into plastic here, so I'm not going to go super tight once it bottoms out, which I think it just did, yep. A teeny bit more and that's it. Do the same to all three screws. There we are. Okay, there it is. Blower motor's nice and tight. There's a little wiring clip up here, that just holds that up. Pop this in. There we are. Here we go. Oh yeah, there she blows. Cool.
