Legacy Blower Fan Problems...

I took out the lower plate of my a/c and heater blower fan after it quit working ('94 Legacy). Looks like the brushes are worn out, powder everywhere and little metal left on them. Are the brushes a dealer part or do I have to replace the whole fan assembly? It look like the brushes just pull out and can be replaced easily.Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated !

I have had the blower motor of my 55 Thunderbird and the hydraulic trim motor of my boat both rebuilt at a local auto/electric shop. Both just needed the brushes replaced, and in both cases the cost was minimal, when compared to replacing the motors themselves. Find out the cost for a new one from the Subaru dealership ( they will not just sell you the brushes I'm betting), and check the Yellow pages for an auto/electric shop that rebuilds alternators and starters. Describe your problem to them and they can most likely give you an estimate. From there it should be easy to make a decision. Good luck!

has anyone found a source for the brushes/brush assy for a bloweer motor? Mine is a 91 legacy, took apaprt and was full of leaves, cat fuzz, etc. and kept brushes from making contact-cleaned up and is fine, but the brushes are getting close to end of life-dont want to spring for motor unless no alternative. Thanks

For motor brushes, check out www.mcmaster.com Then enter search term 'motor brushes'. They have many different sizes and types. Of course you'll need to pull your brushes to see what size they are.
