No screws on 05 impala a/c blower resistor. How to remove it to replace

My a/c blower motor does not work on a 2005 impala. I have a new resistor to replace the old one which seems to be the problem. The one on the car at this time seems to be permantely installed. Where the screws should be it looks as if a plastic stud has been melted to keep the resistor in place. Is this common. If so how do you replace it.

Use a chisel and scrap the melted part off and when you replace it use self tapping screws there are alternate holes for re-installation.

Your blower speed resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick one up at Auto Zone or Parts Source with the step by step instructions to getting the resistor replaced with common tools.

It is located under the glove box, way in the back of the passenger foot area. You'll need to remove 2 screws with a 7mm socket, and remove the plastic cover that covers the blower motor and another component box that I think controls the passenger airbag. After removing the plastic cover you'll need to side that passenger airbag module to the right so it pop off its mounting bracket and move it out of the way. That will give a better view of the blower motor. I highly recommend you also remove the blower motor itself because the Blower Motor Resistor is located behind it. I think you'll need a 5mm or 5.5mm socket to remove the 3 screws that hold in place the blower motor and 2 more screws for the Blower Motor Resistor... It's a cramped location to work in but if you have all the tools and enough lighting then it shouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes to do. The Blower Motor Resistor costs about $19-$25. Good luck

How do you change a blower motor resistor on a 2005 impala?


Hello there.
Up above where the passengers feet would be there is a plastic panel. remove that and you will see the round shape of the blower motor. Right beside it you will find the blower resistor. Undo the connector. Two screws retain it in place. Some of these are tricky to get to so have a good light to help you see what you are doing. The heads of the screws are hex so a 1/4 inch drive socket/ratchet set will be handy here.
Note the position of the resistor because some of them will go in backwards.
Reverse procedure to reinstall.
Just a note here. If the resistor is burned you may need a new plug too.
And if your blower motor is drawing too many amperes of power it can cause resistor failure.
These resistors were prone to failure from normal occurring moisture, the new ones have a better coating to prevent this.
Hope your job goes well for you.

'05 Freestyle Heater/AC blower only works on high(4). How do I get at the switch or blower motor. Everything is plastic! Does anyone have a solution? Thanks, Bob.


here is what my book says:
Blower Motor Speed Control To Remove:
  1. Remove the right lower instrument panel insulator.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor speed control.
  3. Remove the blower motor speed control mounting screws.
  4. Remove the blower motor speed control.

2002 Chevy Impala Blower resistor location


It is on the passenger side, you have to remove the black plastic kick plate, below the glove box, to expose it (held in place with 2 latches and 1 push pin). The resistor is in front of the blower motor ( sandwiched between the motor housing and the firewall) it is tricky to get to, i think when i changed mine i didnt replace all the screws as they were difficult to remove and even harder to replace. Good Luck, Mike

Blower motor will not turn off when car is off.


If it's only working on high setting it is usually the blower resistor that needs replacing. They are usually located under dash, passenger side, remove cover, and it should be bolted or screwed near blower motor itself. $10-$20 part
