Behind the fan on the nose of the motor can are two slotted head bolts. If you undo those the back part of the can will stay with the sheet metal "box" and the motor will come out

I did mine recently starting from a very crusty 'parts only' heater.

See post 937

I had the defroster and under the seat motors rebuilt at Auto Battery & Electric in Portland. Around $100 each.

I assume you took the seat out to get the underseat heater out? Can the motor be removed without taking the whole unit out? Previous post seems to say yes?

thks

unit looks good!

On my car, a 1940, I only had to lift off the bottom seat cushion.

If you can loosen up the two nuts that hold the motor under the car and disconnect the 2 wires, the motor with fan should left straight out.

Although this may be of no use, if its the same part number as your unit, it might be a good replacement.

If you haven't removed the under seat heater here is a suggestion that might get the motor working again.

Tap the motor lightly, very lightly. I have used the handle of a screwdriver for this. This will sometimes free-up the motor so it will operate again.

Also, I have lubricated the bearing opposite the fan end. This was done to quiet a noisy motor. I have done this by carefully cutting a slot in the housing at the shaft bearing end with a hacksaw blade. Cut the slot just deep enough to cut through the housing. Then, add a couple of drops of oil in the slot. Seal the slot with some sealant to keep dirt and moisture out. This will lubricate the end bearing. If this works the motor will again run quietly.

Sometimes it takes tapping and oiling to get one of these motors running again. Remember, just a very light tapping and only a very small amount of oil.

Good luck.

John-tried the tapping-still locked up-I am going to try and remove the motor. Another question is -how to remove the fan-I thought a set screw held the fan on but it appears to be some type of rectangle device with ridges on the sides

On my "Packard Dual Stream" the fan has a cylindrical attachment on the backside of the fan and slides onto the motor shaft, secured by a set screw.
