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

To remove this plastic under-dash trim, use a Phillips head screw here, push clip here, and a push clip up under here. I'm going to start with the Phillips head screw. Put that aside. Take a trim clip tool or a small flat-bladed screwdriver, just kind of pop the trim clip up. Pull it out. Do the same over here. This will just fall right out of there. We're actually pulling it off of the duct that's right here underneath the dash. Put that aside.

The blower motor resister is back here. To unplug it, push in this clip. Pull down the connector, and put that aside. There's two screws holding it in. You can either use an 8mm or a Phillips head. I have a Phillips head right here, so that's the one I use. Just going to unscrew them. And as I'm loosening it, work the resistor out, and here is the resistor.

With the blow motor resistor disconnected, you've got more room to get the blow motor out. It's just sitting here, and I'm going to unplug it first by pushing in the connector lock and wiggling out the connector. All the wires are loose. This is held in with three self-tapping bolts. They've got a T20 Torx or a flathead, or it looks like you can use a 10 mm socket, so I'm going to use this T20 Torx because I've got it here. Just unscrew all these. I'm going to hold the blow motor as I loosen the last one.

This blow motor is working, but it was making a noise. It sounded like debris stuck in it. This truck doesn't have a cabin filter to keep debris from falling into the blow motor, so I'm going to see what's inside here. Yeah, it's filled with leaves, so I got to clean that up before I reinstall it.

With the blower motor cleaned, I'm just going to put it back in place. Line up this square part with this part over here. It'll sit right in place. I'm going to capture one of these self-tapping screws and install the remaining two. Reinstall the resistor. It's keyed, so it only goes in one way. It's got to fit in just like this. Capture the bolts. Capture one. Capture the other one.

Now that those are tight, you can plug it back in. It'll click when it's in place. Plug the blower motor back in, and those are installed. I'm going to reinstall the plastic trim. This opening is going to go on a heater duct that's under here. It's going to match up with this one on the trim panel. Just going to slide right on. Lift up into place, and install the Phillips head screw. Just tighten it down. It's just going into plastic. Now reinstall the push clip, and reinstall the other push clip. And push that in place.
