The heater motor is beneath the windscreen wiper. 1) remove the rubber edge strip that runs across the engine bay separating the the engine from the battery on one side and the brake servo on the other. 2) at the back of the engine bay the middle panel is held on by large plastic finger tightened nuts, remove these and lift out the panel. 3) loosen the rubber strip to the base of the windscreen and surrounding the windscreen wiper mechanism. 4) remove the screws that holds the plastic guttering along the base of the screen. 5) be aware of clip underneath at the inner part of the guttering where it meets the surround to the central wiper unit cowl. 6) remove the top four screws and two on the underside of the cowl and lift away. Undo the 4 bolts (10mm) that hold the wiper motor frame and remove the clip that holds it in the middle to the bulk head lower down. Disconnect the motor and lift away. 7) you now have access to the heater motor, it held by three screws. Disconnect the electrical connector and lift it out. On my own car I had a situation where the heater motor would come on or work faster as I turned left but went off or slowed right down when I turned right. Both the carbon brushes has become fixed in their passageways and the slight shift of the motor spindle in the bearings either made or broke the electrical contact between the now fixed brushes and the armature. A simple removal of the brushes to clean and lubricate has ensured no further incidence.

Can anyone tell me the location of heater blower motor on 1993 dodge spirit?

Under passenger side dash. My info says you have to remove glove-box assembly to get at it. Even then, you will have to remove part of blower housing to get at the blower motor. Heck, I even gave you the link for step by step removal, if the link worked. has info for removal, if your sure the blower motor is faulty.

The heater fan on my 1993 f-350 has become really loud. I only have hi speed which I understand may be a resistor issue but how do I remove the fan and motor assembly to inspect it?

A heater blower motor resistor is an electronic device with three or more progressive resistors that allow the heater blower motor to operate at slower speeds. The highest speed of the heater blower motor is not controlled by the resistor, so when the resistor fails, the fan will often work on the highest speed setting, but not the lower speeds.
To resistor is generally located under the dashboard and under the hood, near the blower motor . The resistor's electrical connector is disconnected, the resistor is removed and the new resistor is installed. On some vehicles it may be easily accessible, and on others it may take partial dashboard removal to replace the resistor.
Look under the hood, generally the wiring for the Blower resistor is attached to the wiring to the blower motor itself
It's inboard & below the motor, near the accumulator. You can see it standing beside the passenger fender. it's the off-white connector behind the L heater hose above the vacuum reservoir & the white WARNING sticker
