Randy Barnes: I definitely recommend removing the blower motor for increased access. No need to cut the insulation to get at the 2 back screws. Just remove the front screw and pull the old resistor out in pieces. the new part will slide into place provided all debri is removed from the screw mounts. Just screw the front screw back in and you are good to go. Took about an hour of working upside down with the passenger seat reclined. hope this helps...
DEMONlCO: You HAVE to remove the blower motor. In my case it was only 3 7/32 bolts and it came right out. It is impossible to get to the resistor bolts with the blower in the way. I just did mine and it took me a little over an hour and saved about $80 bucks!
meTimetraveler: removing the blower motor does make it waaay easier. I could not get the connector off so I cut the wires. your going to replace the resistor pack anyway.
jcook007fix: You don't need to remove the glove box. I thought I could put the camera there while I was working. But, I could not.
meTimetraveler: Why did you remove the glove box?
jcook007fix: Anything is possible. However, selecting high-speed bypasses the resistor ladder.
jcook007fix: Removing the blower motor on this car will not make access to the resistor easier.
gbgregg: Thanks. Good video
yony loya: My car have the same problem,but is leak water too
sea godds: I love how the engineer in you comments on the fact that two of the screws on the glovebox hinge are shorter than the others. Typical GM....
thecheesburgler: This job really sucks. I tried it today and coulndnt get to that back bolt on the resistor.
