And would you say the increase in delivered air speed was due to the new blower motor, or the new cabin filter, or both? If both, how much of the change would be due to the new filter and how much to the blower ? Please try to guess if possible. Thank you.
RobertBaggio, did not mean to mislead anyone on the timeframe. What I meant to say was I believe I could change the Cabin Filter in ~ 15 minutes. The Blower Motor took ~ 2 hours start to finish. However even when the new Blower Motors was running full tilt, not much air was entering the Cabin. With the installation of the new Filter is when the drastic change occurred. So to answer your question, the Cabin Filter was clearly the culprit of the lack of Air Distribution.
