Question about Cadillac DeVille
Had the same problem. Figured the worst part was that the blower motor itself was $400 when I got it just above cost. According to the repair manual, you have to take the engine out. F that. I just cut the casing for the blower motor, (very neatly) then sealed it up again with epoxy.
Make 2 cuts that run from front to back, and bend it back towards the firewall. Not the prettiest, but not noticeable unless you look right at it. Blower works fine now, and that's the main point.
