Blower fan destroyed housing. Cheap fix?

Blower fan destroyed housing. Cheap fix?

Few days ago I was driving down the road. Hit a massive pothole on the left side. When I did that I started hearing a plastic squealing screeching sound coming from the passenger side dash. And my AC wasn't really blowing. mess with the controls. Realize the fan was turning fine but something was going on in the air wasn't coming out the vents.

so today I pulled the plastic shroud and when I got in there, the blower motor and fan was not sitting in its housing properly. It was tilted connected on one side and out on the other.

I went to put it back in place, but the side had come out on had been damaged. The sounds I was hearing was the blower motor spinning against the plastic where it should Mount. And that got chewed up.

I don't know if I can put it in place and try to JB weld it? Or put some screws to hold it in place. Has anybody had anything like this happen? I'll try and post a couple pictures of the housing.

First I've seen of this! Did the blower motor rip out of it's mounting holes then?

It appears that it is not the stock motor. My guess is that when it was reinstalled, it was not put in properly.

Best Idea I can come up with is go to the wrecking yard and cut out that section of plastic with an inch or two all the way around and smooth any protrusions from your case and screw the new piece in place on yours. Maybe use some VHB tape and screws.it could be made to be a fairly clean repair that way.
