Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
I have a 2001 Kia Sephia. The heat and A/C stopped working, nothing is blowing out. We bought a new blower motor because this winter I would use my snow brush to hit the area where the blower motor is and it would somtimes start the blower up again; until it did not. So my boyfriend's grandpa (who has been a mechanic for 40+ years) said that it sounds like the blower motor has gone out, but since he is retired and unable to assist with the replacement, we need help! Do you have to take the whole dash apart to get the blower motor out? If not, then how do you get it out & replace it without damaging the new blower motor?
Just offering advice on a general application for a broad number of vehicles as im not sure where your blower motor is.
car manufacturers know that the blower motor gets used as much as the radio, so they generally make it easy to remove and reinstall.
if you have the new blower motor , look under the hood for a part that looks like that one sometimes they put it under the passenger side dash
. also look at that new part and count the holes on the flat part and its usually 3 or 4 retaining screws that go thru the holes
find out where yours is on your car, and look for the screws that are holding it into place. those need to be unscrewed
its normally pretty simple to remove the retaining screws and unplugging the wire connector, then pull the motor and fan blade assembly out of the hole . now you most likely have to remove the fan blades and put them on your new motor. sometimes its a clip holding the fan blades on, sometimes its just a nut that has to be taken loose.
put the fan blades on your new motor , put the motor back in place and put the screws back in place and plug it back in.
First thing i would do is unplug the old fan connector, and if you can get the new fan close enough to the connector, plug the new motor in the connector and see if it spins ( before you try to take the old one out)
if it spins , then the problem is defianately a bad motor and you need to switch it out

Most likley the problem is the blower moter resister. Its located on the blower and is easier to repalce the than whole unit. Go to mitchell1diy and pay the 10 bucks for the procedure,,,, Unless you can see the electrical connector on the blower. The part it plugs into is the resister. It should slip out like after you remove the screws

For California models recommended at 105,000 miles.Belt needs to be inspected at 60,000 and 90,000, miles and replace at 105,000 miles.
Except California replace at 60,000 miles. Note 1.8L engine is a interference engine, if timing belt goes bad will cause major internal engine damage.

It could be the blower motor resistor, the high position feeds full 12 volt power directly to the blower motor. All lower settings route through the blower motor resistor. It is usually located under the passenger side dash, not far from the blower motor. Two screws secure it to the heater box.
