98 Ford Explorer: Fan only works on HIGH

Any suggestions for fixing the fan for the heater and for the AC? It only works on HIGH. Not too comfortable.

Should be located under the dash near the blower motor.

Will look something like this

Re: 98 Ford Explorer: Fan only works on HIGH

Thank you. Can I just order a new one and replace it? Ah, would it be that simple? Or do I need to take it to a repair shop.... Thanks again for replying.

Yes. It's very easy to change, unplug the wiring harness, pull the 2 screws and remove. You can get one at Auto Parts Fast at RockAuto for under 16 bucks and 4 or 5 bucks shipping.

Dealer price should be close to the same price and probably in stock. On some vehicles they are located under the hood.

Some blower motors are located under the hood also. Not this one
