2000 Chevy Malibu blower motor

Good morning everyone,

The blower motor in my car is shot, at least I'm almost positive that's what the problem is as the fan doesn't work on any setting and it has been making a clicking sound like it was going to die for the past couple of weeks. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with maybe a diagram or simple instructions on how to replace the blower motor myself. I have found a couple of how tos online but none for a Chevy Malibu. If anyone could offer any help that would be great!

This is probably not going to be an easy task because it requires the removal of the entire dashboard usually. With the dashboard removed, you are then going to have to purge the A/C system and remove the two A/C lines going into the firewall. Then drain coolant down below the heater core hoses, then disconnect the hoses.

It will take a full day at least for the novice.

If you have access to the electricl plug that goes into the motor, you can check for power with a multimeter. If you have power, that means the motor is bad. No power means you have a control switch problem.

Go onto Autozone.com and register it has online manuals for this car.
Pull out the glove box and visualy inspect the fan motor area. Manuals are good but most often give you the long version. You may find a more creative way to replace the motor than ripping apart the whole dash, A/C and cooling system but have the online manual as a backup.
I have a 2001 Malibu and have done some work to the fresh air vent door near the fan motor. I could be wrong but again I think you can sneek out this motor. You might have to break some plastic. Oops, did I say break I meant to say use creative engineering.

blower resistor not motor

I had the same problem, however it was the blower resistor not the blower motor. It is on the passenger side floor and much easier to replace than the whole motor.
