Question about 2001 Chevrolet Lumina
The heater fan is under the passenger dashboard. To reach it, remove the two plastic plugs holding the insulation and remove the insulation. It is all the way against the firewall. It is held on with 3 bolts.
Here is fan control access from the service manual. You have to remove the trim panel over the instrument panel cluster, not difficult but just a pain.
1. Remove the steering column opening filler panel screws
2. If equipped with a column shift, apply the parking brake.
3. If equipped with a column shift, adjust the shift lever from Park to 1.
4. Tilt the steering column to the lowest position for access.
5. Remove the steering column tilt lever. (I didn't do this to remove mine, but you have to be careful with the angles and torque you apply to everything to make sure you don't break the lever or the trim panel).
6. Grasp the instrument panel cluster trim plate at one edge and carefully pull to release the retainers. Carefully work your way around the entire IP cluster trim plate.
7. Remove the IP cluster trim plate.
Reinstalling the IP cluster trim plate:
1. Align the IP cluster trim plate to the IP retainers.
2. Carefully press the IP cluster trim plate to secure the trim plate to the IP retainers.
3. Install the steering column tilt lever.
4. Return the steering column to the original position.
5. If equipped with a column shift, return the shift lever to the Park position.
6. If equipped with a column shift, push to release the parking brake.
7. Return the IP steering column opening filler panel to the proper position.
8. Install and finger tighten the IP steering column opening filler panel screws.
8.1 Tighten the right IP steering column opening filler panel screw first in order to properly install the IP steering column opening filler panel. Tighten to 1.9 Nm (17 in-lb).
8.2 Tighten the left IP steering column opening filler panel screw to 1.9 Nm (17 in-lb).

The heater fan is located under the dash on the passenger side. In the 2001 Lumina you have to take out the 2 plugs holding the insulation in to remove the insulation. The heater fan is at the very front butting up against the firewall. Removing the front-most bolt is a real pain in the ****, so it might be easiest to remove that first and install it last.
