Re: Trying to locate the front blower motor in a 1997...
It is behind the glove box. There are a few screws/retaining clips at the bottom of the glove box on the outside. You then open the glove box and remove a few more screws. Once the glove box is out, it will be obvious where the blower motor is. It's the only big round thing down there. lol If you are still unsure, turn it on and listen/feel for it.

If you open the back door on the van, to the left in the 1998 van there is a panel with the air compressor behind it. there is a blower motor for the rear of the van vent system behind that compressor panel. in the 1998 van there is a clip that plugs in and can become loose causing the blower to not come on.
depending which motor you have and where you see the antifreeze driping from will tell you if the altenator needs to be removed for access these cars were also notorius for intake manifold gasket leaks usualy at the front of the engene where the manifold meets the head can also apear at the trans end of the motor if there is no antifreese in the oil this where you could start looking
The Blower Motor Resistor Block is usually located in the air duct on the output side of the blower motor. It is placed here so that air flow from the fan helps stop the resistiors from overheating and burning out. It should be obvious once you look near to where you replaced the blower motor.
This is usually due to corroded electrical contacts or separated solder joints on the circuit board which are both located inside the wiper motor. The quickest and easiest solution is to replace your wiper motor. I have taken these units apart and repaired them,but you really need to know what to look for to do this.
I think this motor has supports on the front that reach from the motor to above the radiator. You need to take the bolts out that hold it to the radiator and then you will be able to move the motor forward several inches.
