What i would like is instructions on how to get the middle panel off of my dash to replace the blower motor switch on the 2002 kia optima 2.4 L. We think it is the interior blower motor switch that has gone out but can't seem to find the schematics on how to remove the interior switch to replace it with a new one

Hello, does the blower motor only work one one certain speed or not at all? If you bang on the blower motor will it start working?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Does not blow at all. You can feel the outside air blow in from outside and it is cold but when you turn the switch on, no air come out. But you can hear the idle speed change when you turn the a/c switch on/off

Is it a manual or automatic ac control system? Have you tested for power and ground at the blower motor?
