[DML] Re: Suspect DMC Engineering -- Repaired



I discovered that - if the drain is clogged - the movement of the car 
around corners, etc. will allow water to get into the blower motor area.

With the motor mounted as it is the prospects for the accumulation of 
water and other stuff in the bottom of the motor is high thus causing 
lower bearing failure. I'm on a replacement motor since last year. The 
OEM failure was the lower bearing caused by water damage from a clogged 
drain. The drain clogged by what I don't know but, the shop vac 
connected to a copper tube sucked it out. It appeared to be 
deteriorated foam. I had nursed the OEM motor bearing with lubricant, 
etc. but the damage was too much and the motor had a major drag on it.
