You have to have that done by a garage because it is directly linked to the vehicles internal computer and you don't want to mess it up.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove instrument panel and insulator. Detach the wiring connector at the blower motor. Remove the 3 screws retaining the blower motor to the evaporator housing.

You can order a replacement fairly cheap, but its a tight squeeze in there, I suggest you let a professional do it, or you could actually end up loosing a finger. Remember to unplug the battery before you begin any project on any vehicle. It will prevent the fan from coming on, but also from shorting the system.

You are going to need to take the battery cables off and then you can replace the blower motor once you have located it.

You will need to first remove the old blower motor, usually located under the dash, passengers side. Remove the 5 or 6 bolts holding it in, and disconnect the electircal connector. Then you can put a new one in, and install the bolts. Then re-connect the electrical connector and that's it.

You need to first locate the air conditioning unit, which in the taurus it is in the lower left corner. You need to unbolt the 6 connecting bolts and disassemble the blower hosing. You also need to unplug the wiring that is running to the blower. Then just swap in the new unit for the old.
