This just helped me get a mouse out of blower. Oh my beejesus it stank! To drop the motor just take off the shield below the glove box and then take the 6 torx screws out of the bottom of the motor. Then pull down!

Now I get to eat dinner then go clean out the blood.

I have a rapid ticking when the blower is on. Will replacing this switch make that go away?

I cant find one for me, but I have NOT tried the dealership. I dont even try and buy things like that from them, they tend to charge tooooo much for me.

Use the pictures above, they will help you get right to it. I would take the resistor out completely and drive over to the dealership WITH IT so you can compare the part you have to the one they are selling you. Not sure about the jeeps but on alot of cars they have updated them and the resistor looks sightly diffrent on the outside. Just make sure its got as many plug connections as yours. Good luck and keep us updated
new to this forum, first post

I actually got a WAY cheaper part on my resistor and harness at the nearest jeep dealer.

Napa wanted 89.00 for the resistor and 70-100 for the harness.

Jeep dealer charged 26 and change for the resistor and 29 for the harness.

I have the 4 pin resistor for manual controls.

thanks to the OP this is very useful for first time replacements.

So, I am one of the lucky few who dont have a resistor. I have a blower power module. Which is a cool $100 at the dealer. I couldn't find it at any parts stores...

Thank you for taking the time to do it well.

My blower motor (on auto. temp. control system) is starting to go. Now, I have a template to follow in repairing it.

FWIW, the blower motors on each of my 4 GC's ('97 ZJ, '00 & '03 WJ's & '08 WK) have died after ~5 yrs. The '08 WK (with) ATC is starting to act up now. Every so often, I have to smack the glove box to get it to run. Once it starts, it runs reasonably well.

The motor needs to be replaced, but it comes as a sub-assembly with the fan wheel attached.

This thread was great, because I couldn't see how to get the glovebox out damage-free. Thank you.

BTW: GC's with ATC have an electronic board in place of the resistor.

I found this write up after I posted my problem with my blow motor resistor. However I am happy I took it to the garage because there was damage to the wiring harness. My friend works at the garage and did the install and told me it took longer then normal due to that. Cost me $42.

Part number - 5191797AA
Thats it right there! Advanced auto had no clue what i needed and ordered me some 50.oo part that was not correct at all even though it says so in their system. thanks for the link. just ordered it!! Well actually, the resistor wasnt the issue, it was the harness itself. even though that link is correct, the same site has the correct harness too! Either way, thanks for the lead!!!
