Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the A/C and heater, lower motor. This is a 1998 Toyota Camry, which is the same for 1997 to 200. You'll need a new blower motor from and a flat blade or a T25 Torx driver.

Remove the lower plastic cover onto the passenger side of the dashboard by pulling straight down and toward you. Remove the electrical connector at the bottom of the blower motor. Remove the three screws, holding the blower motor into the HVAC housing. This can be done with a Torx bit, a 10 millimeter socket or a flat blade screwdriver which we'll use. Remove the blower motor from the bottom of the HVAC housing.

Here we have our old part that we removed from the vehicle and our new part from 1A Auto. As you can see, there are some slight aesthetic differences in the actual fan, but it's still going to function properly.

We have the same mounting locations, the same 2-pin connector, and the same outer diameter to fit into our HVAC box so if your heat and A/C isn't blowing like it used to, or you hear a noise when you run your fans. This new part from 1A Auto is going to fix you up right.

Reinstall the blower motor into the HVAC box. Reinstall your three screws and either a Torx bit, a 10 millimeter, or a flat blade screwdriver.

To show you that this hardwood can be installed with three different tools, we're going to use a T25 Torx screwdriver to reinstall the hardware. Reinstall the electrical connector.

Install the rear pin into the hole by the firewall and snap the front clips into place.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
