Were you able to see the back of the one installed in there?
Does it look like it has the plastic shroud on it?
And does it look like it has a nipple connection for a cooling tube on it?
I ask because I am not familiar with the ones that install behind the glove box, but it would kind of make sense that one without a "cooling tube" would go in there, as I am pretty sure that tube is to help pull any water away that may develop inside if the blower motor, on mine that installs in the engine bay at the firewall is there for that purpose, from what I have read.
Hope the four seasons one works, let us know how it goes, good luck!
Sorry for the late reply...I have been travelling for work the last 3 weeks and haven't had much time. I installed the new Four Seasons blower it went in without a problem, cooling tube and all.
As I mentioned, I did happen to notice some water buildup in the old tube. This prompted me to clean out the AC drain hose on the firewall again. It was packed full of dirt. This may seem like a really really dumb question...but how does the dirt get in there? The hose faces downwards on a 90 degree angle and is formed to be slightly closed almost to a point...Could the dirt be coming from inside due to the lack of a cabin filter? I cleaned it out last year and it was full. After cleaning it last year water was gathering under my car when the AC was running. This time when I cleaned it there is no water draining under the car, but I put that down to the fan being weak/not running. Now I am starting to hear the sound of water flowing when I turn left. The tube can't be full after a few weeks can it? Is there anywhere else that water can gather under there that would cause this noise? Where would the other end of that hose lead to? Or maybe a secondary drain hose is plugged?
