Replacing the brushes on the Saab 9000 heater blower motor
After many years of operation, the blower motor on the Saab 9000 will become erratic and eventually cease to function altogether. In every case I have seen, this is due to the motor brushes being worn down almost to nothing, despite little apparent wear to the commutator. For a long time this meant replacement of the blower motor, which is very expensive even as an aftermarket replacement. However, suitable replacement brushes are now available at low cost and replacement is a DIY proposition, as documented here.
