Heater displacement motor broken

The heater hasn't been working in the old man's 95 EF Fairmont for a while, he took it to an auto electrition today & they quoted him $650 to have the dash completely taken out etc to replace this $220 part, its a little motor which opens and closes the flaps or something which allow more or less hot air through.

My question is how difficult is the job, i have the gregory's manual which explains how to take the dash completely out, can anyone tell me what else needs to be done to replace this motor & can i save the old man $400 in labour by doing the job ourselves?

Thanx for any help.. Cheers.

Re: Heater displacement motor broken

as qouted you have to remove the whole dash, not a hard job really, just dismantle the dash to pull it out as per the manual, replace the part, throw it all back the way it came out, I have done my ea several times (not alot of diff to the EF really), easily a job done in a weekend.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Hmm th old man wont put the time aside, he "would rather go to work and earn the money" oh well his loss. Is there anyone is the newcastle area who'd do this job for less than $400 labour?

Re: Heater displacement motor broken

If i was in newcastle i would help, its also a matter of finding some one who has done it before to make it quick and easy, guessing the first time makes it a long process, set aside 2 days, start sat morning, you may need sunday as well, penidng how well it all goes and how long you want to work per day.
