    Hey Tacoma world again! Was wondering where the heck do you find the blower fan plug without buying a new blower?

    Hey Jimmy, I successfully replaced the burnt resistor and noticed the fan blower connector is a little charred and needs to be replaced.

    Why do you need the wires? you can't reuse the ones in there? Is there a youtube out there on replacing this part?

    Thanks!

    You need to replace the terminals in the plug as they are the source for the heat ( loose connection acting as a heater ). You will need the wires and the connector itself. If it got good and hot the wires are probably damaged anyway. Cut off the old and splice in the new.

    Just my $.02, not sure in these posts if the blower motor was replaced but if I find any blower connector wiring that is melted and needs replacing, I would highly recommend replacing the blower motor too. A failing motor can draw more current and cause the wires to operate hot and melt the connector.

    Great Job Jimmy!! AC is blowing fine. Other than being ripped off on shipping it was a quick fix.

    As for replacing the the blower motor I did that once already. I blame Toyota and myself for that...

    at 191k miles I don't see me keeping it much longer. this will get kid #3 outta HS and off to college.
