Blower motor

The commutator (copper thing the brushes ride on) on my blower motor was so worn that there was no point replacing the brushes. I was surprised the motor still worked at all. I shopped around and found the best deal to be ******** Arizona, $85 for a new motor and free shipping over $50. The motor is here, it's a new Bosch, just like the old one. All I have to do is press off the fan, put it on the new motor, and be good to go...after I resolder the ACC board of course...having already kitted the mono valve.

The re-solder job, by the way, is the same procedure recommended for the cruise control brain, and works just as well, at least it did for me.
