blower motor

Hi all, I have an 1991 E-150 conversion van. A couple of days ago the blower
motor just quit, no noise, fuse is good. What I need to know is how/ where
do you access the blower motor.
TIA!

Hi Mark,
You reach the blower motor from under the hood. Look at the right side (passenger
side) toward the passenger compartment.
The motor is probably not dead but draws too much amperage. The failed part is
likely the blower resistor, just to the right of the motor. The motor dragging causes
a thermal fuse in the resistor pack to open. It's common also for the connector at the
resistor to overheat and fail. Check for power and ground at the motor connector. If
you don't have it, the thermal fuse is open. You will need the motor, resistor and
maybe the connector.
Also take a few minutes to check the blower speed switch and it's connector (in the
heater control asy), they are also prone to failure due to overheating.

Regards, Tom

Yea Hurc, the motor usually takes out the switch and resistor along with the
connectors (harnesses). It's a systemic thing. I didn't want to scare him too bad.
