Unhappy 96 Mercury Villager, Blower Motor location ?

We were driving with the ac on and smelled something burning then it stoped blowing. The heater and defroast do not blow either. I bought a new blower motor hoping this would fix the problem but I cannot find where it is installed. Any help please?
Thanks alot !

The motor may not be the problem, could have blown out the blower resistor.....

The simplest way to get the location is to call up the dealer's parts department and ask. That won't help you with the R&R though, a repair manual will.

According to Alldata there is a trim panel that had to be removed before you can gain access to the blower motor. The blower motor and the resistor are in the same general location, on the right side of the dash on the passenger side.
Here is the procedure exactly as Alldata shows:
1. Disconnect Battery negative cable
2. Remove a plastic rivet and 3 right hand trim panel screws, then remove the trim panel.
3. disconnect the blower motor electrical connector
4. Remove blower motor air vent tubes
5. Remove 3 blower motor screws, then blower motor
6. Remove blower motor fan from motor as required.
7. Reverse procedure to install. Torque righthand instrument panel trim screws to 23-32 inch lbs.
Hope this is helpful to ya,
Billy

Thumbs up Problem solved

Thanks. You found it for me billys68ss!
I didnt even have to remove the trim. Whoever owned the van before us had it off and never out it back on. It is not noticable because its under the dash so its ok. Anyways, I pluged in the new motor and boom, we got heat again. I could see inside of the old motor and it looked burned up. Thanks again for all you kind peoples help.
