Re: [DML] Re: AC blower fan strength/velocity




Its purpose is to seal up the open space where something (I think the evap lines, but I don't remember) enters the box, and to be a general pain in the ass.  I mentioned how to tape it in my post below.

Can anyone tell me what the purpose of this foam piece on the back of the evaporator box is, how it does it's job, and how you can duct tape it?

I replaced the fan in 2004 with a Hervey unit to fix a noise issue. The fan still did not blow any stronger, but was much more silent than the original.
