How to change the blower motor on Dodge Durango 2004-2009

DIY, change the blower motor on your Dodge Durango, the car model made between the years 2004 and 2009. This is an easy replacement, that can be done in less than half an hour. The worst parts are probably the working position, because the motor is located underneath the glove box and the moment when you remove the screw somewhere near the carpet on the car’s floor, which is the trickiest. The only tool you’ll need is a 7 mm socket wrench with a ratchet and extensions.

     So, in the beginning, you will have to get access underneath the glove box an unplug the harness that powers the blower motor. It should look like the one in the image below. It has a locking tab that you must press and then you can pull it down and out.

     After you move that plug away, you can remove the three 7 mm bolts seen in the next picture, that secure the blower motor. You will most probably need extensions for your socket or tools to be able to loosen them. At least the one on the back, near the electrical connector can be quite difficult to remove.

     Once you remove the retainers, you can simply slide out the motor. The replacement goes right in, as the old one. Start its bolts by hand and then tighten them with the socket. In the end, reconnect the harness and you’ll be ready to go. This is all you need to do, if you plan to remove and replace the blower motor on your Dodge Durango, the model produced between 2004 and 2009.
