I need to know how to get to tblower motor
Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
It's under the passenger side dash, some may have a protective cover.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
there is a cover
Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
It will just pop off or a couple screws. I work on all brands and models and cannot remember specifically how that one is attached and the facotry info I have does not show it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
when I start the car and turn on the fan control I have to slap the cover and then the blower works
Expert:  Neal replied 2 years ago.
It may just be the connector, I would check the connector first, clean it and see if it fixes the problem.
