My car has 203k miles and the motor was toast. I bought a 12v dc motor on Amazon for $6. Dimensions were 28mm diameter body and 33-37mm body length. 2.3mm shaft. 6000rpm motor. Very simple to solder in new motor. I had a 2 wire fan. Not sure about 3 wire fans. Also leveraging off the fan blade was very simple. Large wide flat head all the way to the center and give it a decent pry.

Nice. Never thought about just buying a new motor. Kudos

Just got it in today and it works great. A little bigger but it fits.

Does the motor have markings for positive and negative connections?

Yes one side has a little plus sign with red paint on it. I slightly bent the terminals inwards to make it all fit.

FYI - this motor is 33mm, the same length as the original:




Question, how did you determine that 6000rpm is the correct spec?

oh so is this what that is. i have a 8F[143] Electronics-box fan code and couldn't figure out what is was for. thought it was for the radiator fan but checked that and all works fine.
guess i need to buy a new fan for my electronics. happy the search found this thread.
