Blower motor removal?
« on: January 20, 2020, 05:38:07 PM »
Hi so I took the car to the car wash where it's very humid I had turned on the AC to keep the windows from fogging but then the next day my blower motor was frozen from moving.
Put a heater on it then it started working again about three hours later  when it's -30f. Next day it froze again after getting it very hot for an hour.

So I'm curious how do I get to the blower motor so I can wipe out the moisture.

If it is anything  like the Edge, you drop the glovebox to get at it from underneath.  Look up the MACTFORDEDGE  channel on youtube.

2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Thank you I didn't check back before doing but I'd like to add that the rear left screw is reverse thread I tried for a few minutes the right way notice it didn't even budge tried the other way and it came loose
Here are the photos of the motor.
I had a heater on it the area was very warm w/ also auto started it for 30 minutes not sure if all that dried the water out but it was completely dry just can see the red soap or wax dried on there.
I left the panel off so if I need to replace it or give it a gentle kick to turn it back on it should be much easier.
The motor turned freely.

You will need a 7mm and 8mm 7 first 3 then 8 for the motor.

I would have sprayed liberally with electronics parts cleaner to get it cleaned out, but not sure if it has exposed greaseable parts or not.

Fingers crossed, it's back in business.

It might be worth to also check the Blower Control Module Resistor if its not functional!  [9L3Z19E624B].They work in accordance to each other.

Btw check the cabin air filter to verify it's not wet. Z

Well it worked this morning.
I'll check the filter at lunch.

Well the filter had no signs of water in it completely dry
Does any one know of an easier was to get the filter cover off the left one has to many sharp edges in the area.
Maybe just use mechanic gloves.

Grab a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the bottom TAB UP and should pop off.

Alternative is using a mini flat head screw driver and insert it behind the TAB and PULL IT UP & outwards. Z

Ok now the blend door isn't operating I thought that was frozen but won't work still when I had heat in the car for 8 hrs same as before

It did kinda show signs of going out I was messing with forscan and in the error codes said the motor circuit was closed but then restarted the car and everything was fine...

So I know I have seen at least one post on this but how would I diagnosis this issue or do is there one main motor to replace for the blend doors?
Right now I believe it's just stuck on panel mode.

If it is stuck as to where the air is directed, that is a mode door actuator issue.  There is one mode door actuator for defrost/panel/floor as linked to above.
