I'm starting a post to find out the lowest price each of you have paid for a NEW set of blend door motors. Hey like many of us, I am always in the market for the cheapest prices on parts, and among other things like damper, track rod, drag links, and shocks that i need, i now have half my dash out and am considering buying a whole set of NEW motors.


Post the link as well if you can. We all use ebay, but I just cannot find them at a reasonable price. some clown at miami rovers wants $170 US for ONE motor, I laughed.

Anyway, let's get this party started.. I'm sure everyone on here would benefit from this post now or or in the future. If the price is in GBP, then it looks like we'd pay about a 62% penalty to get them from the UK based on the exchange rate, so if our good buddies across the pond and elsewhere add to this, we just need to do our little conversion. it really sucks that our dollar is so weak, because there are some good prices and lots of choices in the uk for parts. When i'm on ebay.co.uk and search for p38 parts, like 2200 come up, versus like 200 here in the states. Big bummer. :cry:

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

Well, for this post, yes. There are a bunch of junkyards that we can get them from.

The issue is that because getting to them is such a beast, the thought of doing this twice would be a nightmare. I know of a yard here in maryland that I can get them for $30 if I pull them off an already disassembled truck.

Lowest prices are kept on home page. Email your prices for all parts (if lower than those listed) to John so the home page can be updated.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

I'm not sure if it will help but...

I was recently ready another forum and somebody was replacing just a single blend motor, they mentioned the part number as being STC3259A and it being available from Bearmach. They also mentioned that when they removed the bearmach sticker there was the original Valeo number underneath which had a part number of 509221 - which they said corresponded to a Motor for a Peugeot 405. Just thought it might help you find additional sources for the parts?

The information was in the following link: http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=49441

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

that helps for sure, thanks for the info. if we can source the part cheap enough for all 3, it's ideal to replace them together because taking the dash apart should be a one-time thing, doing o-rings at the same time along with temp sensor attached to it.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

I bought a new set on eBay for $70 a couple years ago, knowing that I would need them eventually. Well, I've needed to put them in, along with the heater core o-rings for over a year now but I've been stalling...waiting for the engine to die. **** thing won't die. I guess that's good...so I'll probably replace them this winter.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

i wonder if we can find a consisitent supplier for these who can really get them to us at a much cheaper price. I'm hoping to see a price near the $100 mark for sure. anyone else out there?? what have you guys paid?

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

I believe I paid about $390 US dollars (if it was different - I will re-post) delivered to the door for the 3 motors assembly at Rovers North. I just replaced the passenger side blend motor 2 weeks ago. :evil: Not much fun - but my passengers now have heat and the check book symbol was gone for 2 days. Now my passenger side blower motor is bad. :clap: :lol: ... so the check book symbol is BACK.

Hey rodog...you sure it's the motor and not just a relay? Mine goes out from time to time, and if I just shut off the car and wiggle the relay a bit it comes back on.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

No it is a intermittent whine/grind- like the motor is worn out. The same thing was going on with the drivers side this past summer. Drivers side is a PIA to replace - be careful when putting the new motor in you can shear off parts of the fan - ask me how I know $$$$$$ ( so now I have new motor - just no fan sitting on my work bench- I may see if I can swap the fans). I replaced it - sound is gone and check book symbol was gone. I wish it was a relay... I replaced the fusebox and all relays last winter due to many electrical problems traced back to the box ( no further issues since). The passenger side looks very easy- except the wiring for the airbag runs right in front of the motor :thumb: . I believe I can loosen the attachment points and have "unlimited" access to this. Unlimited- being a very relative term when working on this truck.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

Be careful you match apples with apples when sourcing these things. The motors that come in the harness of three have potentiometers in them that feed back to the HVAC control. The singles are usually sold for the fresh air/recirc dampers and don't have the potentiometer in them. They will not function as blend motors in the harness of three.

I got a full set of three blend motors (a few years back) by searching e-bay by using slightly off description search entries (eg vent potentiometers). I found that set for $150.

Re: Possible sticky? LOWEST prices paid for NEW blend motors?

alright, i just picked up two more sets of used ones from two 2002 rangies at the parts yard that will be for sale if anyone wants them-PM me. I'm still hoping we can find a consistent source cheaper than $400 new. keep the posts coming...there's strength in numbers... :dance:
