Hey guys, I need some help here. Last night while plowing snow the blower motor for the heater decided to take a dump. I just need the blower motor and I'll be back in business. My problem is that I can't figure out how to get at the thing. This is on a 2002 T200 with factory heat and air. I can see the blower but I can't figure out how to get it out. Does the whole HVAC assembly have to come out? Please help so I don't have to freeze inside the cab. Also, My dealer wants $140 USD for that little motor!! Once I get the motor out I want to see if I can't get the motor somewhere else a bit cheaper. Does anyone have the motor specifications and I was wondering if this motor might work?

I'm not sure if they are identical, but I just replaced the blower on my 864 a few months ago. You have to raise the cab and remove the panel under it to get access to the blower. It comes as a complete assembly with motor, housing, and blower wheels. Just install it and plug in the wire. Its not the easiest thing in the world to do, but its not that bad.

Well, I got the motor out after I found all the bolts. There are 4 bolts that hold the whole HVAC system to back/under side of the cab. 2 of the bolts are hidden under foam at the bottom edge of the HVAC unit. Once you drop the HVAC unit you will have access to the blower motor. As I said in my previous post, the bobcat dealer wanted $140 USD for just the motor. I took my motor to NAPA and found the motor for $75 USD. I will try to get that part number and post it. I also took the old motor apart because it just needed a bearing and after I got it apart I found that it does not have standard ball bearings. It is some funky bushing (junk) so repairing the old motor is not an option. I also found out that when the motor starts going out it will last about 5+ more hours if you beat on it and spray the shafts with wd40(a life saver while plowing snow at single digit temps). And when it starts to go out you might blow the 25 amp fuse.

Bigb, it depends on if your 864 is a g series or f series.
