Front blower replacement
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:34:42 AM »
Seat Alhambra 2003, 1.9TDI, 85kW.
I was about to finally replace the front passenger compartment blower located behing the glove compartment, but I stopped after I had remove the glove compartment itself.
The blower has like a protective case covering it with some weird clips keeping it in place. OK, so I broke one off, and there is one more left (upper right side).
Question is though - if I remove the protective cover, will I be able to remove the blower itself and install a new one without having to additionally remove the large dashboard panel extending to the media unit and the climate controls?
Hope you guys got the idea, did not make any pictures.

I had my blower motor out and don’t remember having to take anything else off other than the trim under the dashboard that you have the broken clip on.

Impressive... hopefully doesn’t sound too tricky. Sounds like a good design?
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
