    Here are comparison pictures of the old 05 blower motor compared to the newest (-0404(3)). They are quite different externally. I had tried to lubricate the old motor (it was VERY noisy and often did not work in the two lower settings) but the brass bushing had come out so I had to replace the whole assembly.

    The new one is on the left. The white cable clip had to be transferred to the new motor as it did not come with one.

    Woah, it's totally different with every component.

    Any clue as to who makes the motor itself?

    I did not look at who made it, but I noticed that it was made in China whereas the original was made in Korea.
