I have Olds Intrigue 2000. Lately Blower started acting up. Stops working, an hour later it will start working again. Making shrieking / squicking sounds, speed changes
while driving. Using 5.5 mm. socket I removed the old motor. (Not very difficult.)
Wiring harness is a bit tricky to unhook. (!!!Do not touch the orange clip!!!)
Use screwdriver to push the Black Clip in.
Inside the old motor I found brushes are completely worn out. Needed new motor.
In Riverview Florida: Napa and Pep Boys have Chinese made blower, just different stickers on them. In my case Napas had wrong connector type, Pep Boys unit had no connector at all.
Local Chevrolet parts department and Advance Auto Parts had similarly looking part
with more or less right connector type, just different stickers. Both made in Canada.
Locating the blower in a 99 intrigue
it is located on the passenger side just pull down the carpet and it is sitting right there, i believe you will need a 5/16 socket to undo the scews. I will let you know more after I have replaced mine this weekend. Good luck.
You can access the motor bushings through the drain hose hole in the side once the motor is taken out. The motor is located below the glove box behind a panel. Remove the panel (three snap fasteners), and you will see the motor. Three hex head screws hold it in. You also must disconnect the blower by pulling the connector apart. The connector is one of those snaplocks, use a screwdriver to pull down the orange clip to release the connector.
It is located under the dash behind and below the glove box. Remove the screws holding up the dress panel to expose the blower assembly. There are three small bolts holding the blower into the plenum. Disconnect the blower connector first, then remove the bolts to drop the blower out of the plenum. INstall is reverse of this.
Note - if the blower is just noisy, you may try cleaning it out with WD-40. The motor has brass bushings that squeal really loud if a little dirt gets in them. I thought I'd have to replace my squalking blower, but a little WD-40 did the trick - my original is still running fine a year later.
I have a 98 olds intrigue and the blower motor resistor is located under the glove box behind the blower....
depends if you are doing it your self the blower is bout 100 and i did mine in a hour
On the evaporator case.
i would like to know the answer for myself
where is the blower motor located a a 1997 oldsmobile achieva
because the blower motor is no good, for some reason it get damp in the blower motor chamber, and slowly the speeds start to go one by one until you just have high.
The shaft that runs to the motor has got debree, dust etc. on it, and can be fixed with a little lubicant, however it will squeak again. I just replaced my blower motor. It is about a $70 replacement. It is about a 30 minute job.
Either it's the switch on the dash (unlikely) or the blower motor resistor pack (very likely). The resistor pack is usually easy to replace.
Depends on what Oldsmobile model you're referring to...
The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side. You will have to remove the piece of carpeting that the footwell light is mounted on in order to access it. I had to replace my blower motor recently. My advice is to have a mechanic do it. It's location makes it incredibly difficult to remove the mounting bolts and bolt the new one in. The money saved by doing it myself just wasn't worth it for me.
