You do not need to remove the glove box to get to the resistor its located at the very bottom of the dash. Its held in by 1 or 2 screws. If you already bought the replacement look for the same thing underneath, a flashlight helps. Fairly simple, just have some patience. Its close the the blower motor.

I have to replace fan resister on my 2000 pontiac Montana do I to take out the blower motor to get at the resister

Step 1: Pry and remove the retaining pins (3) that secure the interior panel to the UNDERSIDE of the glove compartment area (near the PASSENGER'S feet).

Step 2: Disconnect the blower motor's wiring harness (1).

Step 3: Loosen and remove the 7/32 mounting bolts (3) that secure the blower motor to the vehicle. Pull the blower motor from the vehicle.

Step 4: Disconnect the wiring harness (1) mounted just to the LEFT of the resistor.

Step 5: Loosen and remove the 7/32 mounting bolts (3) that secure the resistor to the vehicle.

NOTE: You only need to LOOSEN the rear bolts, as the resistor will slide free without completely removing them!

Step 6: You can now slide and remove the resistor.

Step 7: Mount the new resistor by tightening the 7/32 mounting bolts (3). Connect the wiring harness (1).

Step 8: Reattach the blower motor by tightening the 7/32 mounting bolts (3).

Step 9: Connect the blower motor's wiring harness (1).

There's only so many screws that hold the glove box in. Some are inside the glove box and some are underneath. You may need a torx wrench depending on the type of screws holding the glove box in.

How do you fix a fan sensor in a 2000 malibu

are you talking about heating fan resistor! if so, this is where and how its replaced. it is behind glove box. remove glove box so you do not have to stand on your head, only about 7 or 8 screws. then loosen and slide ecm to one side. ( but when removing glove box, remove insulator panel under glove box first ) now you can see heater blower and resistor. it is beside the fan, remove the wires from it. take out holddown screws, then pull it out. have a good holiday!!

You need to replace your blower resister.......... The blower resistor is located behind the glove box in the back left corner, follw the wiring harness to the resistor. there is one screw that holds it in place ( a little hard to get to ) unscrew and remove from connector. part is $15 but call different dealers because they price differently. PS squeze the sides of the glove compartment to drop the glove box down
I hope this helps you and please vote on this solution

2000 Chevy Malibu blower motor doesn't work on positions 1 & 2. Would appreciate details on how to fix or change it.

remove dash insulator from under glove box. then move bcm to one side, fan resistor is beside the fan blower motor. the resistor will keep fan speeds from working. remove wiring and screws from resistor then take it out.

Location of the Heat resistor in a 2003 Chevy Malibu?

Under the glove box, behind the blower motor itself. Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.
