The product was a direct replacement for the original. I watched a couple videos to see how to replace this. It is tucked very tightly underneath other electronics and the heater hoses. DOn't try to replace this without removing the heater hoses. It can be done but I think as easily as the hoses are removed and no more fluid loss than you get at this location in the cooling system, you should just remove the hoses and replace the module. It also avoids the issues of damaging the new part when you are squeezing it in.

This product is ok for the price. The connection port for the harness plug has a manufacturing tolerance that makes it very hard to plug in the vehical electrical harness. I had to connect the harness to the component prior to installing it on the automobile. I found it impossible to connect the harness to the component with the component installed and had to remove it from the automobile, connect the harness then reinstall the component back on the automobile. Other than this small problem the component works as advertised and I would buy it again.

After spending a month tapping on the old one to get it to work. The new one was a blessing. Worked perfectly just in time for winter. This specific one they show is for automatic climate control. Also if you take your time and don't rush you can install without removing heater core hoses.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

The product fits and fixed the problem with my blower motor not working. I also replaced the motor as I was told it can cause the resistor to fail if it is bad. I was able to install without removing the heater hoses but it was very tight

WONT FIT INTO PLUG

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

Wasted 2 hours to find out the plug on the end of this product is way too thick to fit into the factory harness plug. Waste of time and now I'm stuck with this useless part.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

These Blower Motor Resistors for Lincoln's are a pain to put in took me almost a hour. The BWD works all my fan speeds work now. I read here that one person had to replace his in a week. I hope that does not happen, because like I said they are a pain to put in.
