    I don't know where the heater-ac blower is located or how to get to it. The car is a 2000 L series saturn.


    The blower motor is located under the panel directly ion front of the windshield, the wiper arms and then the nylon nuts on the post must be removed to access the blower, here is a picture of the blower motor in the car with the panel taken off. Move the picture to your picture files and enlarge it, I apologize for the size but it was all that was available.
