Subject: Blower Motor Repair causes A/C Failure

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. --------------8171857CF20581D903471AA7 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit I replaced the blower motor myself in my '91 9000 cd turbo. The blower motor works well, but now the A/C is functioning very poorly. The compressor is running. The small a/c hose between the compressor and the receiver/dryer gets very hot. The large hose between the compressor and the front of the evaporator does not get cold. The evaporator body is not cool to touch. I stuck a finger part way into the space between the evaporator housing and the blower motor and it did not feel cold. It appears that there is still freon (R134a) in the system. Is there anything in the ACC, or in the functioning of the blower, that could cause the a/c to cool poorly? Could I have damaged the expansion valve moving the evaporator housing around to get the blower motor in and out? If I put the blower motor housing together incorrectly, could this cause the a/c to function poorly before reaching the blower? Any thoughts or similar experiences would be most appreciated.
