Replace blower motor on buick lesabre 2004

It is located under the right side off the dash. Remove the plastic kick panel and you will see it. The screws to remove the panel are just under the glove box. Once the panel is removed you will see the motor housing it has an electric plug with three wires.

My 98 Buick Le Sabre heater blower works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. You just never know.

Sounds like a bad heater control switch OR bad connector to the motor itself. I'd try your local salvage yard or EBAY for a replacement switch. Good Luck. . .

How to replace drive/serpentine belt for '97 buick le sabre 3.8? do u have to remove engine mount/bracket or just engine mount?

You don't have to remove the mount. Go thru the wheel well on the passenger side and remove the motor mount bolt just right of the crank pulley. Then remove the stud that the nut was on. Then remove the sleeve that the stud goes thru. Then you can change the belt.
