It does unscrew although at times they do stick. I would find a flat spot on the motor shaft and get a crescent wrench on it and lodge it so it doesn't move and then grasp the blower wheel and turn to remove.

  5. Unplug the electrical connector(s) from the blower motor, as necessary.
  6. Remove the blower motor-to-case screws (the lower screw is on the bottom front of the cover).
  7. Disconnect the harness from the blower motor.
  8. Use a razor or utility knife to cut through the cover on the cut line as neatly as possible because the access cover has to be reinstalled.
  9. Starting with upper half of the cover, tear the remaining part of the access cover from the remaining portion. Then remove the lower half of the cover in the same manner.
  10. Remove the blower motor assembly.

To install:

  4. Install the access cover onto the case.
  5. Install the screw and align the cut areas.
  6. Seal the cut areas using black weaterstrip adhesive. Do not use RTV to seal the assembly. The weatherstrip adhesive bead should be as straight as possible to ensure a neat and professional finish to the cover. Allow the adhesive to set at least 15 minutes until it skins over.
  7. Attach the electrical connections.
  8. Attach the cooling tube and install the coolant recovery reservoir.
  9. If removed, install the VCM.

2005 malibu - heat/ac has 4 levels for fsn, level


Your blower speed resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick one up at Auto Zone or Parts Source with the step by step instructions to getting the resistor replaced with common tools.

It is located under the glove box, way in the back of the passenger foot area. You'll need to remove 2 screws with a 7mm socket, and remove the plastic cover that covers the blower motor and another component box that I think controls the passenger airbag. After removing the plastic cover you'll need to side that passenger airbag module to the right so it pop off its mounting bracket and move it out of the way. That will give a better view of the blower motor. I highly recommend you also remove the blower motor itself because the Blower Motor Resistor is located behind it. I think you'll need a 5mm or 5.5mm socket to remove the 3 screws that hold in place the blower motor and 2 more screws for the Blower Motor Resistor... It's a cramped location to work in but if you have all the tools and enough lighting then it shouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes to do. The Blower Motor Resistor costs about $19-$25. Good luck

My fan only blows in the 4 and 5 speed mode


Auto Zone sell the blower motor resistor pack for the manually controlled fan speed for $28 (they may also have the automatic or climate control types, too). I did this job myself in less than 30 minutes with a flashlight and simple hand tools. You might have to get into a slightly awkward position to see & remove / reinstall the screws that hold the resistor pack in place under the dashboard.

1) Remove the two screws from the plastic cover under the glove box & disconnect / remove electrical connectors secured to the cover. Set the cover aside.

2) Empty the glove box of the contents.

3) With the glove box open, push the clip on rear of the left side of the glove box towards the firewall to allow it to fall forward.

4) Remove the electrical connector from the blower motor located to the right of the glove box opening.

5) Pull the connector and cable downward tot he floor. There is a thick rubber band that may be holding the cable - pull it away to slide the cable out easily.

6) Close the glove box.

7) Look upward - close to the firewall to follow the cable removed in a previous step (a flashlight can help out here). It enters a plastic part held in place with two screws. There is also a narrow electrical connector on this plastic part.

8) Disconnect the narrow electric connector by pulling it straight downward.

9) Remove the two screws that hold the plastic part in place.

10) Allow the part to fall / gently pry away from surface.

11) Reinstall in reverse order.

The part is Duralast #DR755 shown below:

BLOWER FAN MOTOR DOES NOT WORK IN LOW SPEED


This is usually caused by a failing fan motor resistor. The resistors allow changes the speed of the fan. If one or more fail, certain speeds become unavailable.

2001 dodge grand caravan blower motor not working


OK So, I have had to replace the blower resistor twice and its still has failed. Now its time to replace the blower motor. I have the Haynes manual for this vehicle but it seems to miss some important steps. Here's what I did, I hope it helps you. This job is given 3.5 hours on the shop book and believe me, its not a wonder why.
Tools that I used

- standard screwdrivers 6" with 1/4 blade and 8" with 1/2" blade
- 1/4 inch ratchet with 2" and 1" extensions
- 8mm socket
- 10 mm wrench
- Phillips S2
- drill with attachment for screwdrivers ( I have tendonitis)
- gooseneck extension (plastic / flexible)

Here are the instructions from the Haynes book with my comments and pictures.
One note is that the picture in section 3-8, fig 10-10 is upside down. The Actuator motor is on the bottom of the unit, looks
like a black deck of cards with a wire going to it. Wires at clipped to the housing.
e5575b7.gif

2001 and later models

Step 8 - Disconnect battery negative cable - Wrench 10mm (1/2inch)

Step 9 - Partially remove instrument panel.... - remove glove compartment to access the blower and evap area. Two clips on
either side, unsnap hinges. ( remember to empty the box)
b0fa54e.gif
Step 10 - Disconnect pigtail from blower motor resistor. Green/Black wires

Step 11 - Remove 2 screws to remove actuator. (8mm socket) Remove wire from clips and pull down to remove the acuator. This
will buy you about 1/2 of extra space. Before you do all this, remove the side carpet trim which allows you to pull back the
ee6e831.gif
carpet and the silencer padding. This will allow for some more room to pull the housing down and believe me, you'll need it!

Step 12 - Remove 2 more screws on the air intake and lower housing. I had three screws, you should see them through the
glove box.

Step 13 - Remove the 3 screws at the lower intake and lower evap housing.

Step 14 - Push rubber grommet through hole in lower housing. Use large blade screwdriver.

Step 15 - Remove lower intake housing from evap housing.
This is where it gets tricky.
You can remove the lower intake housing but you need to pry it out from the recirculation door.
The bottom of the unit where the actuator was has a round spindle that clips into place with the three plastic clips.
Lightly pry the lower clips and then also pry through the hole at the connection point. Picture below.
Once you pry it will release.
You will have to jiggle this loose but it will eventually come off.

with mine the recirc door POPPED out of its top rest. I had to make sure on how to get it into this spot as it doesn't stay in this spot.
b839de4.gif

bdcc6f4.gif

bd0eafa.gif

2d042db.gif

Step 16 - Push wires through the hole if you haven't done so already.

Step 17 - Move recirc door about to help you reach the three screws that hold down the motor assembly.

Step 18 - GENTLY flex the door to remove the blower motor and wheel. I moved the motor 180 to help get into a better position.

Install is reverse. Need to make sure that the recirc door moves relatively easily. The calibration below will make sure all is set properly. If it doesnt pass you'll have to recheck the position of the recirc door top spindle and cavity line up.

Step 19 - Not in the book
18. Perform the heater-NC control calibration procedure:
a. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
b. Simultaneously depress and hold the Power and Recirculation buttons on the heater-A/C control for at least five seconds.

The manual heater-A/C control Delay Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Recirculation LED, or the Automatic Temperature Control

(ATC) heater-A/C control Delay and Recirculation graphics will begin to flash when the calibration procedure has begun.
c. The calibration procedure should take less than three minutes to complete for the manual system, and less than twenty
seconds for the ATC system. When the LED's or graphics stop flashing, the calibration procedure is complete.
d. If the LED's or graphics continue to flash beyond the time stated above, it indicates that the heater-A/C control system
has detected a failure and a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) has been set. Use the DRBIII(R) scan tool and the appropriate
diagnostic information for further diagnosis.
