Lube AC Blower Motor?

Post by cory58 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 3:12 pm

My AC blower motor has started the squeak of death. Is there a way to lube the AC blower motor without removing and opening the AC box?

Thanks, Cory

A zoom spout oiler might be the best way to try to do it. With the extendable tube you might be able to get some oil in there to the bearings. Look for it at a hardware store or good auto parts store.
