Brought to you by 1AAuto.com, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the internet. 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 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video we show you how to replace the AC and Heater Fan Motor on this 2003 Honda Civic, pretty much the same as a 2001 to 2005 Civic. Usually when your blower motor sensor goes bad you hear a groaning or a high-pitched squealing noise. That's the bearings going bad in the motor. Sometimes the electronics just fail and the motor doesn't work. The only tool you'll need for this job is a small or a short flat blade screwdriver.

First start out on your passenger side, underneath your glove box, and there's basically a panel right down here. Reach up in the corner and pull down firmly. There are three clips that hold it. Pull the panel down and out. And right here is your blower motor. There's a lid right here, press in on a tab and pull that down and then you can see pretty straightforward there's three screws one there, one over here, and one right here. Okay, you can use your tools, a torn wrench, a flat blade screwdriver which is the one I'm going with because it's pretty much the most common, and even a socket and ratchet and just remove the three screws.

I'll fast forward here as I remove those three screws. Once you remove the screws the motor just come right down now. And the reinstallation of the new motor is pretty straightforward. Put the motor up in. Make sure that your lid does not get caught up in there and then I'll start all three screws by hand first just to hold it in place and then use your screwdriver or whatever tool you may have chosen and tighten up the screws and then plug the lid back in. As far as our closing panel there's a couple of little rubber stops. They go right up into here, here, and there. I'm just going to put that back in. I'm going to put this side in first. Make sure that one goes up in there, and that one. Okay, the panel it's in place.
