I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu LS 6-cylinder and my heater blower stopped working. I checked the fuses and they are all good, I assume the motor for the blower is bad. I believe the blower is a 1997 - 2003 Chevrolet Malibu 4-Seasons A/C Blower Motor. Do you have any other ideas? Also, where is the heater blower motor located? Do you have instructions to put this unit in? Please advise. [email protected]
