Just watched the video,mine blower made the same sound when it broke.After the change I had problem with the ABS,it was locking the rear wheels,lose connection on the BCM was the issue..

The worst blower motor location in any car I have ever came across ,luckily after parting the ways with ford they have fixed it and it's now under the glove box like it should be..

I'm glad that you have fixed it Steven :)

I think Mazda engineered it right hand drive then converted it to left..so my glovebox is where your steering wheel is and the fan is behind it mainly although centre console also needed to come out.

So still a big job but not as bad as if the steering wheel was on the other side.

At least it was done before the temps went down to minus 3.
