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

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the blower motor on this 2004 Volkswagen Jetta, and it's the same part and similar process on these Jettas, from 1999 to 2008. The items you'll need for this are a new blower motor from 1AAuto.com, a T20 Torx driver, and a 6mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by removing these three T20 Torx bolts underneath your glove box. We will just fast forward as Don does that. Pull down your glove box, and then remove these three T20 Torx bolts right here. Now just pull off the side panel and remove this T20 Torx bolt right over here. This will allow you to be able to pull this panel back so that you can get our glove box panel out of the way. Just pull your glove box panel back, and then pull that panel back and then lift the glove box panel up and out. Now push the tabs on either side of this harness and disconnect it and your glove box is free. If one of these speed nuts falls off, just push it back into place.

Now, tuck your soundproofing out of the way, and your blower motor's right here. To get to it, we're going to need to remove the blower motor resistor. Just pull this insulation around that clip and then remove these two 6mm bolts that hold in your resistor. It helps to get the other one if you first disconnect this harness by just pushing both tabs, pulling it free, and then pulling the harness up and out of the way. We will just fast forward as Don just removes those two 6mm bolts. Pull the resistor down, and now you can just slide your blower motor down and out.

On the left is the old blower motor. On the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see that they are very similar and they'll fit exactly the same. Feed your new blower motor up into place, and once you've got it up into place, just hold it there and then take your resistor and put that into place. Once your resistor is lined up in place, then just replace those two 6mm bolts. Reconnect your harness and then tuck this insulation panel back up and around that clip, and then tuck it in on the sides. Push the harness clip back into place and then reconnect your blower motor harness.

Then, pull this insulation back down into place, reconnect this harness, and then pull back that lower panel and tuck the tab on your glove box panel down into it. Then line up your glove box, push in the side, and then push the panel back into place. Now, replace this T20 bolt right here, and we will fast forward as Don replaces the three T20 bolts along the bottom of the glove box panel. Put down your glove box and then replace these three T20 bolts up along the top of your glove box panel. We will fast-forward as Don this. Now, push in the back of this panel first, and then line up the clips and push in the front. Then, close your glove box and you're all set.
