I'm the process of removing a 2002 V12 Vantage driver's side blower motor assembly at this very moment. First you'll have to remove the steering wheel, instrument binnacle, steering column support, electrical terminal block mounted to the blower housing (then separate block from bracket), various and sundry electrical connections , and finally the two housing mounting screws. The blower assembly should now be free to withdraw downward, however it will take quite a bit of jiggling to actually remove completely. Be sure to disconnect battery - cable before attempting any work involving electrical system or instrument panel. Good luck..

SOURCE: How to uninstall a blower motor on a 1999 GMC JIMMY

Yeah if you have to tap on it, then that means the brushes in the motor are worn out and you need to replace it. The blower motor is behind the PCM and Coolant Overflow bottle. If you remove these then it will give you better access to motor. You'll have to cut around housing. There should be a groove already there for you, just make sure you don't cut all the way around it. Once you open it and get the new one installed, you'll have to use caulk to seal where you cut it at.

SOURCE: blower motor stuck on high! 2001 town &country

your blower resister is bad and you need to replace it.......heres how,The glove box can be lowered all the way out of the way just by pulling in the sides so the rubber stoppers come out toward you. The sides bend easily to allow that.

The glove box being out reveals the resistor in the heating duct right in front of you. Just remove the two sets of wires and two bolts (10mm socket, I think) and the resistor pack slides right out. Then bolt in the new one an plug the wires back in (they only fit in one way). Fold the glove box back up and press the stops in to get them back in place and you are done.

The resistor pack only cost $12 and change at my dealer. It is part number 1-04885583AB which was a replacement for the same number with AA at the end, so I’m guessing they had a lot of trouble with the AAs and so made a better AB.

Last Winter my heater blower fan worked only on High. I changed the front heater/AC blower resistor pack and was surprised at how easy it is, but I had to figure it out for myself since my Dealer's parts guy was no help as to where the part lived and my Haynes manual was just plain wrong. This was on a 2001 T+C. I'd be very surprised if the 2001 Caravan was any different. Don't know what other year vans would be the same. I do know some earlier generations had this resistor under the hood and Haynes had is with the blower sort of behind the instrument cluster.

SOURCE: which fuse box has blower motor fuse on 2001 chev impala

There is a blower motor resistor located up under the passenger side dash. I believe there is actually 3 fuses that can cause problems with the blower....relays/fuses should be located in the engine compartment fuse block. They are High Blower fuse-HVAC fuse-Radio/HVAC/RFA/Cluster/etc...fuse. Hope this helps.

    How easy or much time it take to change a front blower fan on a 2001 grand caravan and can it be done at home?


    It is easy and takes about 1-hour to change out.
    However, before rushing to the conclusion that the Blower Motor is bad....
    1. Does the Blower work on High (or #4) only? If so then it is not the Motor it is the Resistor which is located behind the Glove box, mounted onto/into the Fire Wall. Follow step #a. below and take out the Glove Box to access. It measures approximately 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high, and has 3 to 4 wires going into it.
    2. Have you already checked and/or replaced the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the Fuse and Relay Center. If not you should do this first before anything. However if the Blower does only work on High then this Relay is good and you should only replace the Resistor Only.
    I am very convinced that it is either the Relay the Resistor as these fail far more times than the Motor.
    a. Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery and wait at least two (2) minutes to deactivate the Airbag Sensors.
    b. Remove the Glove Box.
    c. Disconnect the Electrical Connection.
    d. Remove the two (2) screws holding the Air Housing to Lower Air Intake Housing.
    e. Remove the two (2) screws holding the Recirculation Door Actuator.
    f. Disconnect the wire harness from the clips holding them onto the Lower Intake Housing.
    g. Remove the three (3) screws holding the Lower Air Intake Housing to the Lower half of the Evaporator Housing.
    h. Push the rubber grommet of the blower motor wires throught the hole in the Lower Air Intake Housing.
    i. Remove the Lower Air Intake Housing from the Evaporator Housing and Upper Air Intake Housing.
    j. Manipulate the Recirculation Door to have access to the three (3) screws holding the Blower Motor to the Blower Housing in the bottom of the Evaporator Housing.
    k. Gently bend the Recirculation Door so that you can remove the Blower Motor and Blower Wheel from the Blower Housing.
    l. Remove the Blower Motor and Blower Wheel.
    Some Blower Motors do not come with the Blower Wheel. Remove the retaining clip from the Shaft of the Blower Wheel and remove the Wheel off the Shaft.
