If possible, I'll repair it myself. If it needs tools and expertise beyond mine I would like to know an estimate of the cost.

i buy my Maserati parts online on this website

But get me the vin # ***** i can get you the part # ***** exact price , so you can call local dealer and give that number or order online

Parts + 4 hour labor ( now that depends where you taking it as far as labor hour it varies

as fa as the job itself, it takes 4 hours and involves tear down the bottom half of the passenger side dashboard

no special tool required for the motor , but testing is needed , to know if you need motor , resistor or wiring issue ?

please let me know

Thank You

Hi Chad,
VIN is ZAMBC38A330009144. I made a typo error the car model is C38 not C35. Body:Coupe, Year:2003. Do you think this can help in testing: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W0SDLRY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I ordered this device for my other car.

Hey how are you

I checked the one you bought from amazon , that will help down road if we have engine problem, it actually good to have ,to read engine codes , live date

so if you had a check engine light , you can retrieve a code and let me have the code and i can look up troubleshoot based on it.

i have customers buying these for i phone and android in they link below, but i read yours sounds does the same thing ,

in this blower situation , what we need is a test light will do , or if you really when go fancy you need a power probe, so this way we can give power to blower motor straight, if it runs full speed , try to get me some picture of the under glove box passenger side , so i can try to guide to how to remove and check

Power probe .

This a picture of the heater box that holds the blower motor and evaporator

if you notice the box has like a round hole , that is where the motor goes in , what you looking for is to get to that plug motor to test it , and also notice the last picture on that heater box on to of it there like a square box with 2 screws that is our blower motor resistor , you should be able to unscrew this and should drop , that contorl the speed o the blower motor .

*** note this is not the exact box in your car , but it is for a Maserati , it is just for point of reference

Hope I was helpful to you , Please let me know if you need anything else on it

I m online daily from 10 am till 12 pm , i will get you some part numbers by tomorrow

A Positive Rating is Much Appreciated
