Blower Replacement with Bosch

Post by Microang » Mon Oct 29, 2018 2:09 pm

So my heater blower started making a horrible noise and it seems it's finished as the shaft is moving all over the place.

So I went online and found you can't get the Hella (BEHR) one anymore, but I found that on US ebay they list Bosch 0 130 063 013 as compatible and from the pictures it looks right and it's pretty inexpensive. However on the UK site people and parts sites list it as a part for a Ford Escort. Has anyone tried this before? Will it work? ](*,)

I am not in Blighty, so can’t comment on the Ford Escort motor, but I did use the same Bosch motor when I replaced mine with no issues. Hardest part is getting the hamster wheels off the shafts without screwing them up.

Suspend the motor over a pot with boiling water. One side of the blower cage dipping into the water at a time. I used two long chop sticks or kebab skewers. Warmed up the plastic enough that the cages were easily removed. Make sure to mark the depth they are installed on the shaft so you can replicate on the new motor or you will have them rubbing against the housing and making an awful racket.

Thanks, I have it all sorted now. Motor worked perfectly and found a guide on the benz forum with the boiling water trick. I recommend everyone uses these for replacement as it's worth a punt rather than wasting £250+ at the dealer for the same thing.
