How long does it take to replace blower motor (time)?

My parents are driving into town and dropping off their 90 L legend for me to repair the blower motor this weekend. They were going to leave it and I was going to drive it 4 hours back to them after I finished it (weeks later).

It may be easier for me to just fix it and have them drive it home. I have searched the forums and read all the diy threads. I don't want to spend the entire weekend fixing the motor, as I would like to visit with them. A couple of hours is fine.

I was wondering how long it takes, from start to finish, to replace the motor. I have advanced mechanical skills (ex. I can pull the engine on a volvo 850, fix rear main seal, and put it back in).

Anybody have any experience with this?

i have replaced them more than a dozen times and it takes me about 15 minutes to do the job from start to finish. here's all you have to do.remove the bottom cover under the glove box which will expose the blower motor,then remove the 3 - 10 mm nuts that hold the blower motor up and unplug the electrical connector and it's out.just reverse the process and you're done. that's it. 15 minutes.

Hi Everybody,

It took about 30 minutes. I had to do it twice b/c the junkyard motor that I got had a cage on it that was slightly different than the original one. It rubbed at high speed. Swapping the old cage back in fixed the problem.

Thanks for the help.

I just took outmy blower motor and cleaned it up.

3 screws for the lower dash cover under glove box.

3 bolts holding the blower motor in. Unhook harness, pull it out.

Then unscrew two bolts for the "cap" and spray out the brushes and electronics. Make sure you blow it out or dry it carefully.

then reassemble.

PS, I found nothing wrong with mine. but it blows weak in my opinion. im gonna see if we have any kind of cabin filter next, maybe its clogged.

No cabin filter my friend. Doesn't the blower resistor have something to do with fan speed? Did you look through the on line manual at all?
