I have the entire assembly that has two fans on it from a 97 Thomas.

They should swap. Seriously: they need power, ground, coolant flow, and to be securely mounted. Can't be that much different brand to brand! Heck, they might actually be the same heaters.

Re: BB-under seat heater motors

I would think so too; when I was looking for a replacement fan motor for the defrost fan upfront, I was surprised with the variety of different models that were available. My fan motor was seized up a little. I was able to disassemble, clean, lube and reassemble it and so far itís still working. However it is in pretty rough shape, so I don't expect too much more life out of it.

If you have fans and they are just not working well or seized up it might be worth breaking them down and cleaning them.

Iíll look for the model/brand when I get a chance, however the unit as a whole worked well before I removed it so I really donít want to just pull the motors out of it.
