Ill keep it short. My heater blower doesn't work anymore, so I think I need to replace it. How hard is this to do, and can someone maybe explain how to do it?

1. remove your kneebar.
2. remove glove compartment.
3. Remove the blower motor by depressing the retaining lug and twisting the assembly off as shown. Disconnect the electrical connector. Installation is the reverse of removal.
Blower motor being removed. Push retaining tab (A) and rotate motor in direction of arrow.
did mine today,thermal fuse gone wrong,got myself a temp. replacement at the junkyard,came back home and installed it,guess what?the fan barely moved,only on the highest speed it worked,took the blower motor apart and cleaned it out with a compressor ''air'' gun and some finger-grease:p,then i lubed it up with ZEP45 industrial lubricant,some other thing i did,if you remove the round cap that's located on the bottom of the blower,i put some grease on the inside of the cap,so whenever the fan is rotating there is still grease on it,now moisture or whatever that gets there has no chance of blocking the fan again...

Test the fan switch. My cars only work on high, which I've been told is a precursor to them not working at all.
If speeds 1-3 work but not 4, its the fan adjuster switch. If 4 only works it the blower motor.
My fan switch only has three speeds. 3 is the only one that works.
I've replaced the blower (different issue, sucked the foam in and burned up the motor), and the new blower is the same.

decided to resurrect this thread as I have a couple of questions about this. how long does it take to replace the blower motor on an A/C car? Mine is a 92 GLI. I have a Bentley and it sounds like all I need to do is remove the knee bar and glove box and I'm there. Is it that easy? BTW I have no fan 1-3 speeds and replacing the blower motor, the resistor pack, and the switch if necessary. Thanks

Just did mine, took no more than 20mins. I have a 1990 VW Golf Diesel, only had to remove the so called kneebar (the pocket thing below the glove box). Don't forget to keep the old resistor/ wiring harness from the old motor, that is needed on the new one. Canadian Tire would have charged me $300!! Instead I bought the blower online from http://www.autopartsonlinecanada.com/. Savings by doing it myself = $90/hour!! (accounting for time I spent online reading this forum etc).
