it should.

keep in mind that if this is the first time replacing it, it has to be cut out of the HVAC duct....yes CUT OUT. the new one should come with tabs and bolts.



Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.

nice.

before you do all that, take out the cabin filter and look inside the blower fan for debris. even a litle leaf can cause imbalance that makes the whole thing vibrate like crazy.
