1992 Volvo 940 GL

After changing the radiator this summer,

Volvo B230F engine

Then the heater fan stop.  I remove glovebox and check fan speed resistor, looks kinda rusty. Tried to spin fan cage and was hard to move, the motor is bad.  I need to replace heater blower motor before it get too cold, estimate cost with new resistor and fan motor – $180

heater fan motor

That should get me through winter and into 2016

Volvo get me home
