    My blower stopped working completely during a heavy downpour. The next day, after verifying the fuses and relays were not the problem, I started the car, turned the blower knob on MAX, and started gently hitting the blower box from underneath.

    While I was wacking it, crud started coming out of the 2 vents of the black box. Then after about a dozen whacks.......the blower started working again. I'm now positive that there is debris inside the black box causing the issue.

    Is there a way to vacuum out the blower without taking it apart? Can it be done from the outside of the car near the windshield vent is?

    Thanks in advance.


    P.S. This DIY is an excellent resource. Very nice photos and detail.

      But yea, expect your fingers to feel funny after this, idk why. There is lots of dust and ish.

        with out taking the whole thing out you can clean out the vent part a little if you unscrew the tabs that keep the air from venting out the seams where the blower motor and heater core meet you can pry it appart a little and stick a crevasse tool from your vacume cleaner and get any dust and other crap that falls down there through the years out.

        JJ you probably need to replace your motor or is it just not blowing hot air?

        edit: you may end up having to take it appart completely if you want to keep your blower motor in tip top shape.

          At this age the brushes are no good in these motors..
          If your motor stops working your brushes have been depleted.
          I was backing out of my driveway one morning and I let the clutch out a little hard. All of a sudden black smoke came pouring in through my vents and my blower didnt work since.
          When I took the motor apart I found about a pound of debris and brush dust inside.
          I found that one of the brushes actually fell sideways and jammed between the stator and brush holder. Causing it to...not run (it was so worn down it just fell out)
          I looked and looked in the junkyard and EVERY CB had brushes very close to mine. ( I wasnt going to accept a short lived fan either)
          So I went to my local NAPA and found some Alternator brushes for $5
          They aren't a perfect fit, but damn! For $5 I have a fan motor!
          Also beats a new $200 fan aswell hehe

          So I cleaned and oiled it back up and it runs just as fast as it did before, I think actually faster! (because now it has oil)

          You dont have to loosen ANY of the dash bolts, you just need to wiggle things around with some strength.

              thats also the quickest way to breaking more shit youll have to replace. Do it right the first time and unbolt a few extra bolts.
