Blower Motor

Hi guys. New here. I'm going in for my first blower motor replacement. What would be your first go to for a trusted car guru on YouTube?

I learn my auto repair skill from the ericthecarguy youtube video. Beside a Versa, I also own a Civic and an Accord. He is a Honda trained technician. I found his videos easy to follow. He did a Nissan timing chain and tensioner video.

For blower motor replacement, it will be car specific.

You have your work cut out for you. The blower motor used to be on the passenger side of the cabin filter box, and was fairly easy to remove, then Nissan decided to put the motor on the drivers side of the cabin filter box. As you can see from the video, it is almost impossible to remove the motor without removing some of the dash components. Even then, you have to be fairly flexible to be able to work in close quarters. Good luck!!!

Ugh.. I wonder what the book time is for that job. Probably an $800 shop job and a component that's always going to fail outside of a warranty.

Ford Focus does stuff like that for heater core, the dash comes out. I have worked out a method I will use on mine to simply make two cuts across the plastic dash lower to remove only a much smaller piece of lower dash to not have to remove about 500 other things there. Kills like 3/4 of the effort there. Then remount the cut part similar to like under steering column covers that are OEM.

Don't know if Versa dash can be done for something like that, I cross that bridge when I come to it. Anything to save an extra several hundred in work. Yanking old dashes is asking to break all sorts of odd fasteners that typically are meant to be used only one time. BTDT.

I’m also having an issue with the A/C. It blows cold air just fine. The problem is with how strong the fan is. It seems as though the fan is slightly lower in strength than it originally was, but when I turn a corner the fan strength increases and there’s more airflow. Do you know what could be causing it to blow full strength when I turn a corner? I have 2016 Versa Note SV.

Have you changed your cabin air filter? Those will reduce flow when clogged/dirty.

I’ve replaced it. I don’t think that would have an affect especially since the fan speed goes faster while taking a turn.

You may have dirt/junk in the motor cavity slowing it down. If you park your car outside the mice love to nest in them. When I pulled the fan motor in my truck I had a real mess. They had a family in there and when I turned the motor on Ö.well.....

I suppose if the bearings/bushings are going out on the HVAC blower motor, inertia in different directions could cause it to speed up/slow down.

If it was a resistor board problem, you typically loose the slower speeds all together. A wiring/electrical issue, the blower goes totally off/on.

Again.. just offering you some suggestions. I haven't heard of this particular issue.
