I had a question regarding the blower motor failures that have been
discussed here at length. Is it generally accepted that the brushes
simply wear out from use, or are there other effects that hasten the
deterioration? I am about to embark on the blower replacement on my
'88 5K, and one thing that I have noticed is that the A/C-heater does
not seem to dry out very well. When I change from Auto or Defrost
modes to Econ (i.e. not using the A/C compressor) I find that there
seems to be a reasonable amount of humidity in the air coming out the
vents, even if the car has been parked for some time since the A/C was
used. Do the drain lines get plugged?
I guess I'll find out more about the issue on my car at Christmas!
