Do it yourself, change the blower motor on your Ford Escape, the model made in the years 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. This repair is quite simple, but it will take you about half an hour. The hardest part of the replacement is actually the working position. You will have to get access beneath the glove box and get a light source there somehow. The process will also require an 8 mm socket, with a ratchet and an extension.
So, the blower motor on this car is located under the glove box, somewhere in the area of the passenger’s feet. You will have to get there with a flashlight or other light source and start by disconnecting and moving away the harness that powers the motor. You can unplug the blower motor resistor first (there is a small tab in the back that you push and then pull the harness down and out), that should look like the one in the left side of the image below. After that you can remove the plug in the middle and in the end pull out the cable from the plastic clip on the right.
After you remove that cable, you will ease your access to the blower motor bolts. There are three of them, similar to the one shown in the picture below, that can be removed with an 8 mm socket wrench.
Once you remove the bolts, you should be able to pull out the old blower motor. Be careful, you don’t have much space to maneuver it. Remove it carefully and install the new one. Make sure you secure it with the bolts and reconnect its harness. This is all you need to do, if you wish to remove and replace the blower motor on your Ford Escort, the model produced between 2001 and 2007.
