I just replaced the blower motor in my 2006 XC90. I am not a mechanic, just mechanically inclined. Here's what I would add:
1. In addition to removing the kick panel (as in Richie's comments above), you'll want to remove the glove box itself. Definitely will give you more room to work with.
2. Not sure about the pollen filter, but in my vehicle the filter was straight in front of me when I removed the kick panel, and therefore, there was no need to remove.
3. It is true there are four gold colored torx screws, but I have no idea how one gets to the screw in the front / right side of the motor assembly. So, I removed the three screws I had access to, and then broke off the assembly from the 4th screw.
4. You'll need to do some wiggling to get the assembly down. It doesn't just drop out with no effort.
5. Purchase a used replacement part to save $$$! I bought mine off of Ebay for $60 (used).
In total, this took me about 90 minutes to remove and replace. The dealership wanted $1,400 for this job!!! So, when subtracting out the $60 I paid for a used blower motor, that works out to about $900 per hour. Well worth my time and effort.

DID YOU CHECK THE BLOWER FUSE? YOU HAVE TO FUSE PANELS, ONE UNDER THE DASH AND THE OTHER UNDER THE HOOD.

SOURCE: XC90 2008 CABIN AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT

Under the glove box.

Put the seat back all the way rearward (just to give you more room to move.

On the panel just directly below the glove box, there should be two Torx 25 screws. Remove those and pull that panel downward and rotate the right side back, that should release it from the kick panel on the left.

Now towards the back you should see the blower motor. Kind of an off white color and a black panel on the bottom of that.

It's held in with four gold colored Torx 25 screws. Remove those and the pollen filter should be in there.

If you have the thin pollen filter, you can get away with simply removing the two golden Torx 25 screws closest to you, carefully bend down the black plastic cover (carefully enough to squeeze the pollen filter past, I've seen people break them cause they do it too much).

If you have the thicker pollen filter, you have no choice but have to remove the four screws.

OK. So the blower notor isn't operating. Do you have power to the blower motor? The resistor is new from what I got. If you don't have power to the blower motor, then check the speed control switch and fuses. If you have power at the blower motor, replace the blower motor

There is a blower motor under the dash, behind glovebox. Loosen 3 retaining screws holding motor housing, drop motor housing and blower motor unit. Replace blower unit. The problem involves the blower resistor. This piece must be replaced but might be easier to replace the entire blower motor unit.

No heat or air


Check the blower motor speed control resistor pack is ok.
(The resistor pack is usually located in the blower fan ducting in the air flow).
Check condition of electrical connection terminals on the blower motor circuit - these terminals pass considerable current and over time may fatigue overheat and loosen.
Check operation/replace any blower motor control relay,
Check the blower motor will run if +12v directly applied to the blower motor.
Check operation of the blower motor speed control switch is ok.
