How to replace rear blower resistor motor on 2008 chrysler town & country


The OP asked for the REAR, not the front. The rear is a pain in the neck to get to, but is fairly doable by most people. You have to carefully take apart the trim panels on the passenger side in the back. This also includes taking off the trim panel on the top and bottom of back of the van that go from side to side.
You'll need to remove the bolts holding in the bottoms of the seat belts.
You also need to remove the trim panel covering the speaker. This is important because there are two screws behind it that you have to remove. Then you can just pop everything off with a trim stick. Take your time and don't miss the pop in tabs that hold the top/back panel in.
After that, remove the two 10mm screws that hold in the blower motor. You should also pop out the two ducts (one that goes up the back, and another that goes beneath the window. That'll make it easier in a minute.
Gently pull out the blower motor, but be careful. There are AC lines and lines from the heater core containing antifreeze that can kink. The AC lines come up from the bottom, while the antifreeze lines come up the side under the window (I might have that backwards...nonetheless, be careful).
So, gently pull the motor away and you'll see the connector for the blower resistor. Remove this (slide the red tab one way, then squeeze the base of the connector where the wires come out to release it).
Getting the resistor out is the trickiest part unless you disconnect the AC and coolant lines. You don't want to do that because you have to capture the freon and the coolant, so be very careful and use a torx bit to remove the two screws. I used a torx bit in a 1/4" socket to loosen them, then unscrewed them all the way by hand.
Installation is reverse from that. Good luck, although I assume you have this fixed since I'm typing this a year after you asked. I just learned this over the weekend, so I thought I'd share. I wish I had this tutorial a week ago :)

How do you remove the spare tire from a 2006 chevy uplander?


To remove the spare you need to access tools stored in the back of the vehicle, passenger side storage area. Open llftgate, remove net (if equipped), lift tab and remove cover to tool storage. Attach folding wrench to extension, insert 'chisel' end on an angle through the hole in the rear bumper and into the hoist shaft. Turn wrench counter-clockwise to lower spare enough so you can pull it from beneath the van to detach. Good luck!

Easy. First you need to remove the rear splash guards(the plastic pieces located near the tires)
After that, it should be about 6 bolts/clips and they are located in plain view just standing facing the bumper. Then the bumper pulls right out.

Good luck
