    My blower motor went out too. I took it apart and found a single pine needle had gotten into it. Removed the needle and everything has been working fine since. I had to remove the cover over the end to find it.

    That said, your link looks fine and beats $180 by a mile.

    Mine made a tick tick tick sound. After a while it stopped working at all, unless you kicked it first.

    Mine went out. To get it to work, l had to kick it. I. just replaced it with a new one from Toyota. More expensive but I plan on keeping the truck for as long as I can. Plus there were other reasons too. Like buying it here or shipping one here was definitely cost prohibitive. A buddy bought me a new and brought it down with him.

    Well the OEM ones are pure trash so I’d take my chance with the Amazon one. Nothing to lose

    A little of this and a little of that.
    I think you should be A-OK with the $36 TYC blower.
