Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Hi, everyone. Sue here, at 1A Auto, and today, we're going to show you how to change your blow motor in a 2011 Ford F-150. It's located here, on the passenger side, right underneath the glove box. So, if you need this, or any other part for your car, click on the link below and head on over to 1aauto.com.

7mm socket, and there are three trim bolts or screws down here. I'm going to take all three out. I like to do this and leave the glove box latched, so that way I don't have to hold onto everything—balance it. Now I can hold onto this. Undo the latch, and just slide the glove box out at an angle. Now there're two plastic clips, here, that hold this felt liner up. I'm going to take those out with a body clip; see if I can get the other one—a bit stubborn. Always find surprises under people’s glove boxes. I'll just move this out of the way so we can work better.

To remove the blow motor, there're three mounting screws. They're in a triangle form, and they're an 8mm socket. First thing I like to do is disconnect the electrical connector. That's that tab right there. Squeeze it with your thumb; pull down on it. There we go. Now that's out of the way, try to make it a little easier for you. Then an 8mm socket. The back one, here, is the trickiest one, I think. So, after several decisions—long socket, short socket, swivel socket—the gear ratchet works the best. I didn't think it would work—I didn't think it would go up in there, but it fit. So, now that bolt's out, we have one left, right there. I'm just going to go right with the gear ratchet. It's a funny one—doing blow motors. Sometimes you get little surprises when you take this blow motor out. You know—sometimes just acorns or leaves, a family of mice. Okay, you just have to wiggle it and manipulate it down to come out. There we go, and there it is.

Here we have the new blow motor from 1A Auto. It comes with a cage; comes with a lock clip on it, and it's balanced. That's a cool thing to see. Sometimes you get these parts aftermarket and they're not balanced. That's a sign of quality. And here is the factory one. Still has the Ford part numbers on there. That came balanced—they call this the squirrel cage. That's a press on; there's no clip; the same two pronged connector. So, if you need this part or any other part for your car, click on the link in the description and head on over to 1aauto.com.

Now we're going to install the new blow motor. I'm just going to basically try to reverse the procedure. Make sure you turn it, so that the lining bolts line up. There we go. I'm going to install the closest lining screw first. Wonderful. Now I can get the other two started. This is definitely a patience game at this one. Okay, I want to put that last lining screw in on this side. See if I can balance this out. Once you get them all started, just take your time and tighten them up.

Now that the blow motor is fully mounted up there, I'm going to reconnect my connector. Check again for any melted harnesses. Looks good. Line it up and it clicks in place, and you're all set. When you put the felt panel back up, you'll see this guided slot, and there's a stud that sticks out from the back. That's for that—to right in there, like that, and now we have the body clips. Push those up into the mounting spots. Grab our glove box. To install it, I just go at an angle; put those ears in there. That's the door that stops, and I line up the latch; snap that. Now I've got my three mounting screws and I'll put those in on the bottom. This is the 7mm socket. Get the center one, and the right side, then the left. If you have any problems with the felt, that's a metal tab. You can always bend that back for a better visual effect. There we go.
