If you have your stomach touching the front of the car. the blower is located on the lefthand side closest to the cab. Its behind a rubber insulator and an absolute pain to replace. I have a 1997 Bravada and it took more time to remove the computer and cut the rubber out than it took to replace the blower. I would not recommend this as a do it yourself. I would still be under the hood trying to figure it out. The blower is cheap. $40 or so. the labor to get it replaced is another story.
Remove the wiring harness from the back of the blower motor in your 1993 GMC 1500. Remove the blower motor retaining bolts. If the new blower motor does not have the fan attached to and you will need to remove the fan from the old blower motor. Reverse the process to install the new blower motor.
To replace a blower motor in a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado first remove the old blower motor. Then install the new motor making sure to connect all the wires.
remove panel under glove box. slide bcm to one side. ( it is much easier if glove box is removed ). remove 3 screws from blower housing. pull the blower motor and fan straight down. disconnect the blower motor electrical connection, if you are replacing blower motor with a new one, use old blower fan from old one.
Was the blower motor defective, or where you just guessing. Did you apply 12 volts to the old motor to see if it was bad? Did you check the Fuse. It may be a defective blower motor resistor pack which is a common problem on this car.
One can replace blower motor resistor on 2003 Nissan altima by removing the old using spanners and replacing it with a new one.
Do you already have the old one out?
Hello,Here is the procedure for removing the blower unit on a 1990 300ZX. Note that it may be necessary to remove the glove box assembly to gain clearance for the blower motor removal and installation. The blower motor is located behind the glove box, facing the floor.1) Disconnect the negative battery cable.2) Remove all panels and ducting necessary to gain access to the blower motor.3) Disconnect the blower motor harness wiring connectors.4) Remove the blower motor retaining screws and lower the motor/wheel from the intake housing. On some models, release the clips that attach the blower casing to the intake5) housing to remove the blower motor.To install:1) Transfer the old blower wheel to the shaft of the new motor.2) Raise the blower/wheel assembly up and onto the intake housing. Use a new gasket, if required.3) Install the blower motor retaining screws or lock the clips.4) Connect the blower motor wiring.5) Install all ducting and panels.6) Connect the negative battery cable.7) Check the blower for proper operation at all speeds.
take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.
You will need to change the blower motor resistor by finding it near the air duct system. You will take the old resistor off and replace it the same way.
Take the old one out and put the new one in.
The blower motor is up under the dash on the passenger side of the inside of the truck. I had to replace mine when it was approximately 1 or 2 yrs. old.
If the heat is not working at all it could be your blower motor. If the heat is no longer hot then it could be your heater core, or you could simply be low on coolant. Mine was low for me to find out that I had an intake gasket leak, fixed it and now the heat works great.
No answer on my question, of how to, so I did the uninstall and installation of the blower motor. I hope this will help the next person. ***The blower is directly below the glove box towards the firewall. Be careful in this area, as there might be sensors under there somewhere for the air bags (not sure). The passenger air bag is right above the glove box in the dash board.Uninstalled the blower motor. 1. Take off the plastic cover below the dash directly below the glove box board on the passenger side by unclipping. An easy task. 2. Once the cover is off, you will see a plastic cover with three screws in it towards the firewall...this is the blower motor under the plastic cover. It will have a pipe looking shroud as part of the cover that connects to the housing with a sponge rubber seal. Disconnect the connector that connects power to the blower motor. 3. Mover the side wall carpet (towards the passenger door) out of the way, as you have to lower the blower motor and this will be in the way. It is a small plastic piece with carpet on it. You might have to unscrew part of the plastic piece that connects to the front door frame to remove the piece with the carpet. Be careful not to force anything as these parts get brittle with age. 4. Move any other connectors out of the way. 5. Unscrew the three screws that hold the plastic cover and blower motor in place. Install the new blower motor. *****Check the new blower motor and ensure it is the right part. *** Test the new blower motor by connecting it to the power source. Be sure to hold the blower motor by the rear end, as it can hurt you if you are not careful. Be smart and do it slow. Be sure the fan switch is on low so not to knock the motor out of your hand. After the motor starts on low, then you can check the other speeds. 1. Clean the cover that was covering the old blower motor as you will use it again.2. Place the new rubber seal in the slot on the new blower motor housing. 3. Place the blower motor in the plastic blower motor cover. 4. Install the blower motor into the area of where the old came out by matching the screw stubs and holes together. Be sure to match the pipe looking shroud to the hole with the sponge rubber seal it had, as this area needs to seal also. I believe the shroud provides air flow to the blower motor to keep it cool running. You will find taking the blower motor out is easier than installing, as gravity is not on your side, plus you are working upside down. Just take it slow! 5. After the blower motor is secure in place, connect all of the connectors you disconnected during the uninstall, and place all of the other things back that you had moved. 6. Final check... test the work you just finished.
First you have to remove the glove box. Then you unpulg the wire from the blower motor. Remove the rubber hose between the motor and blower housing. Next disconnect the cable from the case assembly. Take out the 3 blower case mounting screws and lower the case. Then you take out the 3 screws holding the motor in and lift it out. If you're going to put a new one in, you'll have to take the wheel off your old one and re-use it. If it's busted, you might be able to get a new one at Autozone or Advance.
This is a simple do it yourself job. First you need to locate you blower motor heater which should be under the dashboard passenger side, you might have to remove a peice of trim. There should be three screws that will remove it. It should come out in one peice and you have to remove the fan blade that looks like hamster wheel. Buy new part ( bring old part in to ensure you have the right one) install new part buy plugging the blower motor in and reinstall ( You might have two blade into the adapter from you old motor) enjoy the heat, and tell everyone where exactly you blower motor is, p.s take lots of pictures so you have a reference when reinstalling
It's located underneath the glove box on the passenger side. There's a trim panel that you need to remove to access it. I have included a link to a video that will walk you through the process of removing the panel and also how to replace the old blower motor with a new one.
It's possible that the motor is old and worn or the blower fan is partially caked with dust. If the vehicle has a cabin filter, it's also possible that the filter needs to be replaced.
Recall and Technical Service Bulletin The body style that ran from about '99-'03 had a issue with rain water getting into the blower case and ruining the blower resister assembly and the blower motor. There is a modified cowl cover that is supposed correct this condition. One tell tale sign that you have this problem is pull the blower resister assembly out and examine it. If it has corrosion or rust on the terminals, you have this problem. Replace the resister assembly, blower motor, and cowl cover. There is a detailed posting on this problem in the "Related Links" below It's very easy. You'll see the round, black blower motor on the right side of the passenger side of the car, under the glove compartment. Either remove the glove compartment door by taking out the three screws under the door itself (very easy) or gently push in the two retaining bars on either side of the glove box door and let the door drop down. I think removing the door is easier and more efficient. There are three screws holding the motor in place. They are very obvious. Simply remove them (I think they are 9/32nd socket heads). Disconnect the wiring clip going to the motor (easy and pretty obvious). Then pull the motor out. It may feel like it's still attached, but if you took out all three screws, just a little pressure will get it out. You may have to remove one of the plastic one-way fasteners holding the plastic piece under the glove box in order to get the motor out. I had to do this. Gently, but firmly pull the plastic piece until the plastic fastener comes out of it's hole. Or you can snip the fastener shaft. You'll have to replace the fastener if you do this. Then just reverse everything and your motor is back in place. Answer Look under the passenger's side dash, just below the glove box area. There may be a plastic shield underneath, that you remove by simply tugging down on it. On the heater box, you will see the blower motor held in with four 8mm hex head screws. Disconnect the electrical connector, remove the screws, remove, and replace the blower motor. It should take you about 15 minutes. It's pretty simple. The blower motor is under right-hand side of the dash, remove panel to see it. If you want got to mechanixtrix.com they have pictures of it and how to remove it. Also check cowl panel on right-hand side it may be warped allowing water to enter and causing blower motor to break. 1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. 2. Disengage the instrument panel insulator from the instrument panel 3. Detach the wiring connector at the blower motor. 4. Remove the 3 screws retaining the blower motor to the evaporator housing and remove the blower motor and wheel assembly. 5. If required, separate the blower motor wheel form the blower motor by removing the retainer from the blower motor shaft and sliding the blower motor wheel off the blower motor shaft. Reverse to install. I have the same problem with my 1989. I had to take the glove box out to get to it. But before you purchase the actual blower motor, take a tester to the wiring that goes to it (starting at the blower motor end and make sure its not one of the coiled looking "resistors" along the way or the switch) Turned out on mine that its not the blower motor itself, but something in the switch or the path of wiring to the blower motor. Sorry not more help. Cathy The blower motor is located in the a/c evaporator housing on the passengers side under the dash. Remove the cover from under the glove compartment on passenger side. Once removed the blower motor is towards the passenger door. Unplug the blower motor and remove the 3 screws from the housing. Pull the motor out and reverse order of removal. Some brand new motors don't come with the fan, so you might have to take old fan off from old motor and reattach to new motor. Is very simple just be careful when taking clip off of shaft holding the fan on. Chck behind the glove box area
If you buy the blower motor with the wheel already installed on it all you have to to is unscrew all of the screws around the motor, pull the purple primary wire off and the ground will come off with the bolts around the motor and just pull the old one out. take the vent hose off the old one and put it on the new one, attatch the primary wire and put the motor back in with all the screws making sure the ground is tight against the metal on the new motor.
This is a fairly simple replacement, behind the alternator will be your blower motor. There should be some small screws holding the case on to the ducting assembly, and a couple wires. Undo all, and carefully slide the motor out. DO NOT try to replace the motor, and use the old squirel cage. You will be making the repair again if you do. Just buy a new assembly with both the motor and cage.
Most Likely Your Blower Motor Is Going Bad.
im looking for answers myself, so far its in between the rear of the engine and behind the dashboard and is a hell of a job to do yourself as you need specialist tools to access it.AnswerThis is actually an easy job if you are flexible. The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side. The only tool you will need is a Phillips head screw driver. Once you get under there you will see where the blower motor is. Just unscrew the cover then remove the old blower motor. Pay attention to where the cables plug in. Reverse what you just did and the job is done. It can be changed in about 10 minutes.
Disconnect neg battery cable. Disconnect the engine strut mount. Rotate the engine forward to gain access to the blower motor area (Lisle tool company makes an engine rotating tool). Remove the rubber vent tube and then blower motor screws. Remove and reverse the procedure to re-install. Rick doesn't really know what he is doing. His old age has apparently caught up with him. But here is a good way to solve you problem and it doesnt require you shifting the entire engine forward. Get to the blower from the inside under the dash. Usually located under your vehicle's instrument panel, the blower motor can be removed and replaced. You'll need to disconnect the blower motor connector and remove the retaining screws holding it into place. Detach the fan retainer clip from the motor shaft that's located in the center of the blower wheel. You may need to save that piece if you are not replacing the whole motor. Inspect your new motor to ensure nothing is broken and the blades can properly spin. Re-attach the fan retainer clip, the retaining screws, and the connector so you can test your new blower motor out. Thanks but no thanks Rick. Ryan
u have to b a contorshunist and use a swivel joint and a flex shaft
Most common would be your blower motor voltage regulator, this is the part that varies the voltage to the blower motor telling it to go faster or slower. It is located up under the dash on the passengers side and pretty easy to replace. You might also have to replace the blower motor and cover though, if the regulator has never been replaced before you might have to do this. The old style regulator is not available anymore.
