  • Front window defroster not working ('17 Sentra)

    So, I won't bore you with all of the details, but I'll include what happened.

    My blower fan was making a squeaky sound, so I took the time to pull it out. I thought maybe I something was stuck or it was rubbing somewhere. It wasn't, it's internal noise from the motor. Put it back, but now my defroster doesn't seem to work. I didn't change anything or touch anything else, I just pulled the blower motor and put it back.

    Everything is still moving underneath as it should as far as I can tell. There's a little white plastic mechanism that moves when you change blower modes and it moves every time it needs to.

    I'm not really sure what to do or what to look for. If I can't sort it out, I'll just bring it into the dealer, but I prefer doing things myself when I can because my local dealer takes a while to accomplish things. The last time I needed a blower motor changed in my '14 Sentra, it took 4 days from dropoff to pick up.

    Does anyone have any thoughts or things to check? I don't recall touching anything else, but clearly something went wrong. FetLife
