Locate the blower and get a volt meter and an ohm meter. If the motor has two wires coming off it you will need to check two things, the first is for voltage. If the vehicle needs to be running for the blower to work then start it and turn the switch on its highest setting. Set your multimeter on DC voltage of 20 volts if its a manual meter.Touch the black probe of the meter to a ground, be it an exposed bolt or the outside ring of your cigarette lighter/power adapeter, just make sure you don't short the center contact in it. Check for 12-15 volts coming off either wire, if you don't see any voltage to either wire then its possible the switch is bad, and try again by using a different ground. Carefully test both wires using the DC volts setting to verify votage and ground off the wires. If you get a reading then your motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

no the spindle stays on the vehicle,this process is not that difficult.start by removing the wheels and 38mm nut at the end of each shaft,then reomve the bolt holding on the front lower control arm from the front sub frame,pressout the shaft through the wheel bearing,now that the end of the shaft is out use a pry bar to pop out the shaft in the oil pan,pull them out and replace, Also you must be aware that removeing the 38mm nut is difficult without a impact gun and it is also a 12 point nut as well you must force out the ends of the drive shaft with a special puller of a air chistle with a point as you are not able to push it through by hand good luck
