Blower Motor Connector

Ok, I changed the blower motor resistor which was corroded and had gigantic dust globs attached to it. It was also rusted around the cage which I assume was caused by the leaking evaporator that was replaced 2 years ago. All wires looked great under there and I also checked the knobs where you turn the fan on and the wires look good back there.

The blower did not blow at all this time. Got under the hood and checked out the blower motor and I can tell it looks like the wire that connects to the blower motor has either gotten too hot and melted or its just a bad connection. Looks chafed. It is hard to tell cause everything is black and can't tell if there is charing. I did notice the wire that plugs into the blower motor is coming from inside the truck under the glove compartment where I changed the blower motor resistor. Is this something that I can change myself. I can't seem to understand the connection to the blower motor. Is it a clip on connector cause it looks like it is covered with a plastic waterproof sheeth. Not really sure if I can even get my hand down there to pull it out. Is there some kind of picture of this and or a tool to help change this out without having to remove the dryer and pulling the motor out?

Before anything, check the fuse for the blower motor, might have blown while you were working on it...Use a test light to see if the wire is getting 12v before you go pulling it apart...

The fuse is great and the motor is running fine after I pulled on the wire with a coat hanger. Now I think has a good enough connection to run the blower but I think that connection is shot so I wonder how I take it off the motor. I can't really tell.

You are going to have to pull the wire off and clean the connection or it will stop again. I don't remember how it's fastened on, so I'm sure someone will be along with that information..The connection needs to be clean and tight...

That blower motor draws a lot of amps on high. I had one with a bad connection and it got so hot it almost caught fire. If the terminal has been hot, you probably should replace it, because the heat will not only change the temper of the metal causing it to not hold as tight as before, but also the plating is surely damaged on the terminal and it will corrode again in short order.

Just my experience.
