Do I have the wrong motor or what? I recently purchased a new blower motor and although it bolts into the box fine and accepts the squirrel cage fan okay it has the wire terminal in a different location........



....it is located on the mounting flange instead of coming off the side of the motor like the old one.....which incidently ran smooth as silk until I totaled it, but I really don't want to talk about it:eek:



....anyways when I try to mount it the terminal hits the firewall:mad: It looks like I could remedy it by drilling a hole (see blue tape) in the firewall but it is close the motor hole and it seems silly to drill a hole for the terminal to stick through and then turn around and run the wire through another hole back to the switch/resistor???



....was wondering what some of you guys have done or would do?

Thanks,
daymon

I noticed the same thing. It's not the right motor, even though several places sell it as such. You would have to relocate that terminal. I decided to go with an aftermarket a/c and heater set up, and deleted the stock blower motor hole.

Did you find a blower motor???

I am having the same trouble and wondered if and where you found a proper fitting blower motor. I doubt we are the only ones. Let us know...Thanks!
