I decided to do this since winter is coming soon.
Spent all day doing it too.
My 3yo son woud not leave me the hell alone, every 10 minutes I was chasing him down, out of the street, away from the tools/parts etc. Drove me insane!
After 4 hours I finally get it all put back together, hook the battery up and go to turn it on and test it out... but where is the hampster wheel? I thought I had put it on. I look everywhere, only to find out it is in my boys sandbox!
Now I'm contemplating just cutting the housing under the dash to put it in, I really don't feel like taking all that **** back out after the day I've just had.
So I turn the heater on to see if the thing works, and it does, but man is that one noisy motor. I wonder if it's because the hampster cage just isn't on there.(?)
Hopefully this will help out this winter with the heat, I got part #PM102 from Autozone and had to cut the firewall to get it to fit properly. It's odd that they list that part # as the replacememnt but nowhere does it say firewall modification is necessary... even though I knew it would be from the get go.
No I'm going to sit here, drink this beer and probably a few of his friends, and contemplete wether to take it all apart again or just cut the housing.
