Photo of the Month |
As bad as that photo of the burned connector looks, I cleaned everything up and the wiring, metal connector, and insulation are still in good condition where everything melted.
There was enough left of the plastic seal on the end for the burned terminal to be retained in the new housing. In lieu of that seal now it is packed with dielectric grease. I let the fan run for a while and the connector just gets slightly warm, so it appears to be OK. Time will tell whether the blower is drawing too much current.
Still waiting to hear whether Eeuroparts will take back those thin-wire terminals. They asked for a photo of the parts received, which I sent them yesterday. I wouldn't care if they were not so crazy expensive for what they are.
Edit: The blower is working fine but now the AC compressor is not engaging. More troubleshooting to do...
