    1. Ensure the wiper is placed in the parked position.

  4. Remove the liftgate trim panel.
  5. Disconnect the wiper motor electrical connector.
  6. Remove the wiper motor mounting screws and remove the wiper motor from the liftgate.

Rear blower not working on 2008 Chevy uplander

First think I would do is take an ohm meter and see if you are getting power to the rear blower resister. They go bad before the blower does. Also check your fuses and rear fan blower relay. Good luck.

Where is the rear heater motor located on 2008 uplander

If the van has E59 on the RPO sticker you have to remove the left rear lower trim panel to access the motor. If it does not have E59 just remove the left rear compartment lid and compartment to access the motor. RPO E59 is a power left sliding door.

You'll have to figure out what is failing when it quits working.
A mechanic would check for power at the blower motor and resistor.

2008 Chevy Uplander has 21,000 miles. Nno heat from rear heater at idle. Disconnected hoses and flushed, water flowed good. Reconnected hoses and still no heat. Raised idle to 2000 rpm and got good heat....

Uplanders with the 3.9 engine are prone to no heat at idle speeds. Probably weeping head gasket. Air bubble trapped. Dealers will remove rad cap and let it sit at about 25 deg. angle for a couple hours. Good for awhile.
