'76 Seville blower motor
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:59:31 AM »
Has anyone replaced the blower motor on the first gen. Sevilles?  None of my manuals or books mention removing the fender or inner fender but I don't think it is possible without removing at least part of the inner fender.

Thanks
Tim

Has it failed, or just squeaking?  For the latter, some oil on the front and
rear bearings is a cure.  I added oiling holes or extension tubes when
needed for access to my blowers.  Be careful, "replacements" not from
the General will most likely be inferior in performance. 

A car here required cutting a hole in the inner fender to get at the blower. 
good luck, Bruce Roe

Thanks Bruce.  I do have a NOS one I bought years ago when I had my Sedan deVille.  Right now it is just squeaking when first turned on then quiets down.

I don't know that car specifically but many times its not too difficult to pull the inner fender wells for access to such things.
