Is there a technical writeup for swapping out the blower motor and blower resistor? I see this post - http://www.supermotors.net/registry/media/767950

However many of you seem much more mechanically inclined. So has someone written a step by step on how and where to change these parts out..

If not can someone do this for me, much appreciated! Or point me to one thats already been done.

I found this online but would rather see step by step

Does the battery needs to be disconnected? Which squirrel cage fan do I replace it with? Is there a Blower Resistor part number. Anything I need to be cautious about when removing this, any clips that can brake?

Why because my truck is 20 years old

the fact that I asked means odds are someone else will have the same question. Glad the teacher just called me out for asking a "stupid question" and yes if you want to do a writeup on changing tires, where the jack is located, how to get it in and out, where to jack from, again I and Im sure others may just appreciate it

not everyone has your experience god or I mean Steve..

yo Media,
Here is some info to get you rolling;

96 Bronco-F-Series Workshop Manual (PARTIAL)
Same as 95 and most earlier years exc. for OBD II, 4WABS (93-96); ABS (87-92); Air Bag (94-96); 3 Screw Automatic Locking Hubs (Built from May 95 through 96) and a few other items
(still need time to go through all pages to confirm other differences)

Motor & Wheel Removal & Installation in a 96; from 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350, F-Super Duty and Bronco, F-Super Duty Motorhome Chassis Workshop Manual;
Section 12-02: Heating and Defrosting

"...Removal: Disconnect battery ground cable(s). Disconnect wire harness connector from blower motor by pushing down on connector tabs and pulling connector off blower motor. Disconnect blower motor housing tube (19A786) at blower motor. Remove four screws attaching blower motor to heater plenum chamber case (18A484). Holding blower motor housing tube, pull blower motor from heater plenum chamber case and remove it from vehicle. If the blower motor wheel (18504) is to be installed on the new blower motor, remove the retainer and then gently pull the blower motor wheel from the shaft. Installation: NOTE: When the battery (10655) has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more to relearn the strategy. Follow removal procedures in reverse order..."

"This shows where leaves build up in '80-96 truck ductwork. If they build up around the resistors (green), the entire truck can catch fire if the motor (yellow) is NOT at full speed all the time."

"... There is a rubber bladder at the bottom on each side of the cowl vent intake, not sure why, to keep the leaves and crap from getting out I guess . I removed the cowl piece and used a piece of stiff wire to loosen the junk up and then vacuumed it out with my shop vac. I think I'm going to put some screening under the intake grill and remove the bladders when I replace the front fenders next year ..." by Seabronc

The blower motor (18527) is housed in the A/C blower housing (19930) inside the engine compartment. Lower Left behind discolored white vacuum line

changed out the resistor - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-i0tytSYIM
youtube video is pretty much spot on.

Tons of leaves and dirt against the condenser and farther down.

Resistor looked to be original. Super warped rusted, looked night and day compared to the new one.

Cleaned the blower fan, thing was filthy!! All in all took about 3 hours with a trip to Napa and hanging out chatting with a friend.
