    Hey, For the past few weeks, my blower has been working sporadically on my 2007 Toyota Tacoma, meaning that it works sometimes when I turn the truck on and turn the switch, but sometimes it does not blow air at all. I took the truck to a service station two days ago and they showed me that there was not a power problem going to the blower motor, but that the blower motor itself was failing. I gave the go-ahead for them to replace the motor and they put one on order. They called me today and told me that there is a backorder of almost 500 blower motors for 2007 Tacoma trucks here in Atlanta and that there was no estimated arrival time at this point. They advised me to call back next week and to stay in touch. As long as the weather doesn't get too cold for the rest of this winter, I can get by without the blower motor for a short while, because I can simply turn the vent on and have air come through while I'm driving. It will be an irritation, though, on those mornings when my windshield is covered with ice and I can't quickly use the blower for defrost. Is anybody else having trouble with unavailable blower motors for the Tacoma? Is the backorder a common issue in other cities?

    Just had mine ordered last week.. he did tell me its on back order and they dont know how long.. but ill live with the 'humping crickets' as opposed to spending money to fix something that theyre gonna replace it to.....and i hesitate to say this......'FIX' the problem.. i listen to alot of heavy metal.. and i think whoever thought of heavy metal.. had a truck with funny noises in it.... cause it masks everything..... even my girl yapping about nothing in the passenger seat!!:rolleyes:
