'90 200qw fresh air blower...?
OK, I spent some quality time with my car and multimeter and wrenches
last weekend, and I switched the switch for the rear defroster with
that for the fog lights (which don't exist), so now I have a reliable
rear defogger. My very first repair! I also managed to figure out
that my fresh air blower on the climate control system seems to be
dead. The little electric motor is getting 12.32 volts at the right
time, but it ain't inspired by this to actually get down and boogie.
It just sits there. This was not quite the case when I bought the car
a month ago, when it worked fine. I don't know what inspires cars to
go through hell when they change owners, but there it is. So:
Do I have to replace the motor? Is it reasonably easy to get out?
Should I remove the hood first? Where would be a good place to get a
replacement, and how much should it cost? Am I likely to be able to
fix it instead? Can I remove the motor without removing the whole
climate control mechanism and the windshield wipers and the hood and
all that? Bentley is not very illuminating on this subject, at least
not to my poor abilities.
Thanks for anyone who can save me from the $80/hour mechanics!
