When you fixed the blower motor, did you replace just the motor or the entire blower? Can you give me some tips on removing the old blower - I'm not even sure where it is located - is it in the plastic housing marked "Behr" under the dask in the center? Thanks.

Hello Grubeguy, I need some help in replacing the heater blower motor. I have removed all the dash wood and am in the process of restoring it. What else do I need to remove to get at the heater blower? Any instructions and tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.

This site was a big help. I have now finished the restoration of all the woodwork on the dash and window frames. Lots of work, but well worth it as the interior now looks terrific. It's nice when everything works!

hey Packard1807,

This may help.
The ignition is mounted to the steel panel behind the wood. However the plastic peice clips to the wood and will come off when you try and take the wood off (Pressure fit)

Yep.. ya gotta reach in there. If you have small hands, you may be able to reach it from the radio opening.

The vents have a wire clip that hooks on the bottom metal part of the dash. Remove the back of the vent (Where the hoses connect) and you will see the clip. You can see this once the glove box is removed and the gauges are removed.

With the readio removed and the glove box out, it's easy to get in behind everything. The instrument panel is more or less held on by the chrome surrounding the heater controls. Once that's off (it's held in place by a couple of nuts), the chrome comes off and the wood will be easy to remove.

As for the side panel vents, they're held in place with a spring type retaining wire thing. Sorry, that's as technical as it gets. I wouldn't know this as gospel, as mine were long gone, and the vents were just stuck up in there.

Ignition key - the plastic surround will be "stuck" to the wood, but not with glue. Gentle pressure will remove it. The plastic's not attached to the ignition lock assembly.

Ive just finished my dash restoration. The vents (diffusers) you are talking about are held in place by a spring. One end of the spring latches onto the "body" of the dash while other connects to a wire "handle" on the vent. Removing the spring will release the vents from the dash. Be mindful when reinstalling the vents that they have a certain orientation to correctly fit again so note this down when removing them.
