SOURCE: How to replace a blower
There are 5-6 screws holding it in on the passenger side behind/under the glove box. -Remove 3 screws on the bottom of the glove box - don't remember if the door comes off or not. -Remove the bottom panel under the dash. -I believe I removed the two screws holding in the resistor pack to the right of the blower motor and removed that to get more room. -There is a screw in the way back of the blower that you need a universal joint on a socket to get to. -I believe I pulled back part of the carpet to get more room underneath the blower. Even so this was a bear to get out - and even harder to get in. I'll lookup the instructions in the service guide tonight to see if there is any other help. Bill

i worked for olds when that car was new. had alot of those motors go bad. you need to remove the p/s pump to do it by yourself-BUT you can remove the engine struts(mounts) and have a buddy(you trust) start the car and out it into reverse, now have him give it some gas so the engine rocks forward so you can remove/replace the motor/fan assy. - like that?

I have the same issue, and just did it yesterday.
1. remove the rear hatch door handle with a T35 star screwdriver bit
2. gently pry the panel up exposing the two bottom plastic push fasteners
3. I used a flat prybar with the notch on the fastener and pryed both off
(the push fastener has 2 washers on the top end so get the pry bar under the top one)
4. Now pull the panel off the side door latches and gently pull down again to expose the two back push fasteners and pry them off too.
You now should be able to remove the motor. The wiring harness comes off easily after you figured out that the only the small end closest to the wires comes off, not the whole "box". Insert the small blade of a jacknife crosswise in the space on top of the connector and pry up the tab letting the fasterner slip off.
I found a motor on the net for about $80 (part number1880686) but it currently is out of stock so I have to wait a couple of weeks to finish. I put the panel back on without the push fasteners and will wait the 2 weeks. Buick dealer wanted $320.

SOURCE: rear door panel removal
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

The cost of your part retail and NOT dealer (dealers usually mark WAY UP) is about $195 you can see one here.http://www.autopartsdeal.com/catalog/?N=0&uts=true&Ntt=2003+Oldsmobile+Aurora+AC+Delco+Switch+Assembly
The issue is that the wipers are controlled on the turn signal column, etc. So whole part has to be replaced. Dealer labor rates run about $85 per hour and the book says this is less than 2 hour job if done right. Be careful if you want to do it yourself as you will be working with the electrical in the steering column and the airbag is located in that area. Ive seen accidental activations by shorting out wiring.
