A/c blower motor replacement

I have removed the a/c blower motor on my 98 cadillac deville.

I understand to re-install it i must tilt the motor to get 1-2 inches of clearance.. I am not sure which "cradle' bolts to remove. Is it the dog-bone shaped engine torque strap at the left and right corners???
Then where do I place the jack to get the proper tilt?
HELP!!! need a/c I'm in Florida!

How do i install blower motor in 1989 sedan deville?


It is so easy that the service manual does not bother to list instructions on how to replace it. You would simply disconnect the electrical connector, remove the screws from the blower motor housing and remove the blower motor.
I will add however, that I have had a few of these that had purge valves, etc. bolted to the engine valve cover and I had to remove these to provide clearance for the blower to come out.

Wher is the blower moter located at to a 2002 cadillac deville how do i replace the heater blower motor


The blower motor is located under the glove box. It is a very difficult procedure to replace. The blower motor has six 7/32 size screws, two of which are hidden and one, the closest to the firewall, will require a 1/4" drive, and swivel. I removed the glove box in order to put the replacement blower motor in. It takes a little extra time but allows more room and saves your back. Get a diagram off the internet of how to remove these things. Plug in the new blower motor and test it before you just install it! My biggest fear installing the new blower motor was that it took a lot of force to get it back in on an angle. Almost thought that I was going to crack or damage the fins on the cage. It takes force but just be careful.

How to remove and install heater blower motor


because of the clearence you may have to loosen motor supports and jack the motor up a little. I was able to change my 98 deville without doing this,but it was a tight fit. You will also have to take coil pack loose to give you more room.

Humming noise coming from my 1994 cadillac deville especially during the hotter months


Late model Cadillac Deville's and Seville's may experience a humming noise in the passenger compartment when the heater is on high and the blower is set on a medium to high speed.

GM has determined that the most likely cause of the humming noise is from the positioning of the blower motor within the HVAC housing, causing a restriction of the incoming airflow. (GM TSB 03-01-37-001)

The recommended repair for this symptom is to reposition the blower motor.

1. Remove the right side sound insulator.
2. Loosen the three blower motor retainer bolts. (Do not remove bolts)
3. Shift motor as far as allowed toward the vent tube.
4. Re-tighten the retainer bolts.
5. Re-install right side sound insulator.

My heater fan will not work in any speed on my 98 cddy deville


your blower motor is under the hood. If you can't buy one try drilling a hole in the back of motor where the bearing is use a real small drill bit. Then you can oil the back bearing .You have to take the blower out to oil the front.The only way to do it is squirt it on the shaft and just let it run down.
