This is more difficult than it looks because the rear trim panels must be removed in a certain order as they overlap at their edges.

First remove the rear seat.
Remove the step panel from the floor near the side door opening.
Unbolt the 2 seat belt anchors.
Remove the trim panel below the lift gate (rear hatch opening.) Pry the screw plugs out with a small screwdriver and remove the screws.
Pry out the rear speaker grill using a flat blade screwdiver that has been taped to prevent scratches.
Remove the rear speaker mounting screws. Pull the speaker out and unplug the connector.
Remove the passenger side trim panel mounting screws.
Use a panel clip removal tool and pry the clips that hold the trim panel then lift the panel away.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Need to replace blower fan motor 2006 Chevy Malibu

2004 and up, the old blower motor must be cut out with a utility knife and the new one screws into the opening to the screw holes molded into the plastic housing. It is located under the passenger side dash, you may have a silencer / plastic cover there you have to remove to view it.
  • Remove the passenger's side lower silencer panel.
  • Remove the blower motor wire harness connector.
    Two diagrams show how it goes:
    Cut along the narrow groove where the arrows indicate. Do not cut too deep, only enough to remove motor, as the cup will be re used.
  • Install new motor assembly with three screws, usually provided with new unit. Tighten securely.
  • Atatch wire harness. Test unit. If functioning properly, replace silencer / cover.

    Replace vent glass

    It is easiest if you remove the door panel and passenger glass first. Once that is done it is much easier to remove the weather stripping, seal and vent window.

    The passenger side rear window doesn't close

    I'd bet it is the motor to the window. I haven't replaced this yet. All of the plastic on the sides of the van can be carefully removed. You may or may not break the plastic pieces that snap in. When fixing my back door motor, I opened that door, removed the plastic along the floor (edge of door and worked my way around removing side plastic. I don't know where the window motor is located but I'd imagine you will need to do similar in getting the plastic off to get to it.

    Falcon EL - plastic bag sucked in thru air vent from inside car, now rattling behind glovebox somewhere, can't see it. What can I undo to get it out? Would really appreciate your help. Col

    there is an air filter under the glove box and sometimes it's even behind. this one filters the air inside your car, the bag probably got caught in the filter or somewhere around there. check in your glove box and underneath it, come cars actually put the filter in the passenger side under the weather seal outside the car where your wiper motor goes

    1998 Grand Prix SE right rear passenger window falls

    The window regulator that holds the glass that the motor moves up and down is probably broke. There are some plastic parts that get brittle and break. I'd say you need a regulator especially if you can hear the motor operating.

    Floor board on passenger side door gets wet when it rains. i am sure a vent drain is clogged

    The drains in the wiper wells are probably clogged. You need to remove the plastic 'vent screen' under the wipers to clear out the debris. Remove the wipers and a few screws, not difficult at all. Also, under the hood, you will see a vertical tube on each side of the car under the wiper wells. These can be removed from under the hood without removing the wipers, but you will probably have to clear the wells anyway. What happens is the water backs up and enters the car through the fresh air inlet and comes in around the blower fan. Good Luck.

    Trunk leaking water thru vents in the side walls

    Easy to fix. Remove trunk liner or peel back on passenger side. Squeeze tabs that hold in the vent housing and push out. You have to loosen the bumper panel over in the wheel well area. This is just two bolts that take a 10 mm wrench and a plastic body clip. Remove vent from outside of car. Take off old gasket and throw away. Clean vent and metal around where vent goes completely with lacquer thinner. Use a product such as Lexel to caulk around where gasket used to be. Be liberal with caulking, it all covers. Reinstall vent and other parts in reverse order. Poblem solved. One hour to do and no special tools required.

    Replace hazard switch behind dash

    I had the same problem this weekend and fixed it. I experienced the same difficulty. You need to remove a couple covers to allow good access to the back of the hazzard switch. First remove the vent that is located just ot the right of the hazzard switch. There are 2 metal clip at the botton side of the vent. Push up on the clips with a screw driver and pull the vent out. Next remove the black plastic bezzel for the gauges. The bezzel is held in place with 2 screws. Now you should have access to the hazzard switch from the left and right side. The hazzard switch mounts (clips) into a black plastic bracket. I was not able the remove the hazzard swich by pressing on the 2 clips, so I removed the 3 screws that held the bracket to the dash and removed the entire assembly. Hope this helps. I only ended up with a few minor scratches.
