I have a 1998 Land Rover..cooling system..blowers

This answer was rated:

I have a 1998 Land Rover HSE. The heating and cooling system is not working properly. With the heat it appears to get warm but the blowers are not working. The same in the summer, gets cool but no blower. Is there an easy check or shoud I take it to the dealer?
Hello,I am Randall
it sounds like a bad blower motor. The blower is controlled by a speed resistor and when in high speed mode, bypasses the resistor and so if no blower at all, I can only lean to bad blower motor. it is locted in the HVAC case behind the glove box. Not too bad to get to. If you can get to blower and take say a small ahmmer and begin tapping on the blower right around where the plug is, and the blower on high and key on.. it may free itself up and start working again. If not, suspect bad blower. unsure of your comfort level but below are directions to get to and/or replace blower
