Blower Resistor Replacement

Postby Vibedad » Tue Jul 15, 2008 11:32 pm

Replaced the Blower Motor Resistor today after my blower motor in my 05 would only work on high. The Part # is 88973260 and CDN Cost is $56.76.
It is located under the dash very close to the back of the glove box. It is held in place with 2 11/32 inch bolts.
The back one is almost impossible to remove unless you have a flexible socket wrench. For a good picture of it's placement, follow this link:

Thought I would pass this on. I have used a lot of the info that people have posted and thought it was time I gave some back!

Have you done the install yet? because it's possible that it's the control switch as well?

There is a tool, it's called a Skewdriver, that is MENT to get into those kinda spots.. Cool tool.. check it out with a google search..

Just curious. Before your low quit, was it making any noise? My two lower fan speeds "churp" and it's kinda annoying.

Thanks.

It's probably in the blower motor. I'll have to pull it and check it out.

Thanks for the information. I had the same fan speed issue which I believe is now resolved. Even with the flexible socket wrench, that back bolt was more difficult to put back in than I had anticipated. Still worth avoiding the >$100 install fee though .
