2013 F250 Super Duty Blower Motor

Has anyone swapped out their blower motor on their HVAC in a 2013 model? On the previous generation, you just twisted the motor and it came right out. Seems in Ford's infinite wisdom, they decided to move the blower motor even closer to the firewall. I was able to get all three screws out to release it, but not able to get the blower motor free of the HVAC box. Surely someone out there has done this.

The TCCM is on the floor on the passenger side taking up real estate when it comes to removing items, so I had that off.

The BCM I take it is essentially the fuse box in the kick panel. If thats correct, then I could see removing it for room.

Any ideas where any of those screws related to the blower motor housing are located? Or do you have a diagram of what the blower motor housing looks like?

BCM

Remove the passenger cowl side trim panel. For additional information, refer to Section 501-05 .
NOTE: The upper 12A581 harness BCM (B+) connector may be more easily removed after the BCM bolts are removed and the BCM can be positioned lower and away from the body in order for the connector release tangs to be accessed and pressed.

Disconnect the 7 BCM electrical connectors.
Remove the in-line connector push-pin from the BCM .
Remove the 2 bolts and the BCM .

Well it was a successful night. A bit more details on the install for when others try it.

1. Remove the floormat
2. Remove the fuse panel (PCM) cover at lower right hand corner
3. Optional but gives you a ton of room. Remove the door sill and kicker panel cover. This lets you see all the plugs for the PCM very well and gives you room to work. Also optional is to remove the glovebox with the three hex head screws at the bottom. This gives you a place to put a light.
4. Pull back the carpet as far as you can.
5. Remove and unplug the TCCM which is the box bolted flat to the floor. 10mm nuts hold it on.
6. Unplug everything you can from the PCM.
7. Remove the PCM by taking out the two hex head screws that hold it in. They are close to the door on the top and bottom of the PCM. The rear is held in using a tab that goes into a slot.
8. There are 5 torx screws (T20 if memory serves) holding in both the blower and the blower shroud. The three for the blower will be very obvious if you have the new part in hand. The last two for the shroud are on the side between the glovebox and the door. All five must come out. Start with the only one in the rear as that's the toughest to get out. Once all five screws are out pull the blower out.

I finally have all my fan speeds back and no longer have to ask my passenger to kick the blower to get it to come on!

I have had to replace the blower on my 2008, 2011 and 2013 super duties. I have a friend with a 2013 whose just went out as well. I have zero doubt that I will have to replace it on my next one as well. Maybe its due to us being in Texas and using the AC on high for an extended amount of time. The dealers (yes I called multiple) told me they had to pull the dash. Needless to say that wasn't going to happen. Thankfully, larrgh (poster from above) was able to push me over the edge with the instructions regarding the shroud.

I'm getting very close to admitting defeat and taking my truck to the dealership, but I thought I'd see if any of you guys might have some advice first. I have tried three different times to figure out how to remove the rear screw, but I can't get anything to work. I've tried a bit in a palm ratchet, but even that doesn't seem to have enough room between the screw and the floorboard. What magic trick am I overlooking?

Sorry I didnt see this earlier. Yes that back screw is the worst. I tried all sorts of things. I finally ended up taking a torx bit for a screw gun like the one in the image below. I put it into a small ratcheting wrench (from home depot) like in the image below. I held it in place with electrical tape so that the bit did not slide out the bottom. Even with this it was a bear to get out.

Hi guys maybe you might have a suggestion, I have an issue with the 2013 Ford F250 Diesel cabin blower putting out nothing as far as Air through the vents ??? All the Fan speeds seem to be working but on both Heat and AC hardly any air is coming out From what I see there is No Cabin filter Fords DUMB Idea and I tried to get the 3- T20 screws out to check if the Core is covered with Dirt and debris.

Here is my Dilemma and I need Guidance on :
I was thinking I could remove the cabin fan and Possibly snake a vacuum Hose in there to clean it -- Is that going to work or is the Core out of reach ????

Problem # 2
What tool did you use to get that BACK T20 screw out ???? I tried removing the Box on the floor- rolling the carpet back - unplugging the fan and I still cant get it out ?? Would a Flexible screwdriver do it ? I tried the Smallest Socket I could find and I just cant get clearance to get it ??
I read some of the posts where but the Pictures were Gone so I have no Idea what anyone used ?

My big thing is, If can Finally remove the 3- T20 screws can I access the Core to clean it by removing the fan or is there another problem waiting behind there because this is EXTREAMLY frustrating I spent 3 hours yesterday and can Not for the life of me get that back screw out ..

Any help or links to a video or something would greatly be appreciated
Thanks

My 2011 Super duty puts out almost no air also. I'm sure the core is plugged. Dealer says whole dash has to be removed. I'd be content with drilling a couple holes to reach through with a blow tube to clean the core, this is something that will continue to be a problem for me in such dusty conditions. Figure I could find a way to put plugs in the access holes. Anyone ever try this? And if so, could anyone post a pic of where to access?
