PM-102 blower fan motor end play

Has anyone else noticed/run into excess end play? I did some searching here and that seemed to be the recommended unit. I am tired of the inside of my windows icing up from a non working heater. Picked one up yesterday, took it out of the box (noticed the "made in Chynah" label) to install and noticed about 1/4" of end play (yes, a lot!!! ). I am reluctant to install it, have it be trouble and unable to be returned. has anyone else noticed this, or did I just get a bad unit?
Thanks as always!

I recently bought a Four Seasons blower (China) and noticed the same thing. It works fine, no noise. Add a direct ground from the blower to the chassis if you don’t already have one while you’re there. Rather than rely on the ground of the housing which can get weak over time, you’re assured of maximum current flow.
