Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

As mentioned in an earlier review, this BWD fan control resistor for the ATC equipped Explorers/Mountaineers doesn't last long. The OEM Ford resistor lasted 19 years on my Explorer. Had to replace this one 2 times in a span of 9 months. Works great when first installed, but after a few months the variable fan speeds stop working and the fan stays in the high speed all the time. Hopefully Advance/BWD can address this issue, but for now I'm going back with a Motorcraft. Have had good experience with BWD parts in the past, just not this one.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

BWD RU 1232- This is the 4th time in 2 years I have had to replace this BWD item(under warranty). I am now going to Ford original parts (many changes that BWD has not kept up with) as they have just offered a 2 Yr warranty on this part.
A problem part no doubt. Worth the extra bucks for the updated part...I hope.
But as a result I am now very efficient at changing at 25 min...;-)

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

    AC in a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer went out. I check it out and it was the resister and the blower both went out. I was not hard to install, but to bet to the AC blower and resister I needed to remove the air filter housing, radiator coolant reserve, winshield water tank, and two bolt misc AC accesory.
