The Rav4 fan motor gives up the ghost

Posted By on April 1, 2012

My wife’s aging Toyota Rav4 has been a totally reliable car since 1998 and it is hard to complain when a part or two needs to be replaced after quarter million miles. Thankfully the little SUV was designed in a way that accessing the fan motor was pretty easy, so a few screws to remove the glove box and I had easy access to the 3 screws holding the motor in the housing. A few minutes later I check online listings and found a few replacement online … and placed an order. If all goes well Brenda will have heat and AC before the week’s end for under $50.
