Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the blower motor resistor on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe. The items you'll need for this are a new Blower Motor Resistor from 1AAuto.com, flat blade screwdriver, 7mm socket and ratchet, and a pair of pliers.

Start off by opening your glove box and pushing in the sides and pulling it down, then unhook and pull. Next, you want to remove this two 7mm bolts. I'll just fast forward as Don does this. Now, using a pair of pliers, just push the tabs on the clips at the bottom of these harnesses and push them up and out of that bracket. Now, press the tabs on the top of the harnesses and disconnect them. Now, pull down the bracket and on the top of this relay, just push the tab and pull it free.

Your harness for your blower motor resistor is right here. Just pry back on the tab and pop the harness up and off. Just set that aside, and your resistor is held in with two 7mm bolts. I will just fast forward as Don removes both of those. Once those are removed, you can pull your resistor up and to get it out, you're going to actually have to rotate it upside down. Just keep working it around until it's completely upside down and then pull it forward and then down and out.

Take a new blower motor resistor from 1A Auto and just push it back into place. You want to make sure you don't damage any of the coils and just very carefully lower it back into place. Just again, make sure those coils are okay and that none of them are touching each other. Replace those two 7mm bolts. Now, reconnect your resistor harness. Replace your bracket and reconnect that relay and then take your two harnesses and push both of them back down into the bracket, and replace those two 7mm bolts that hold the bracket into place. Now, reconnect those two harnesses, and then take your glove box, put those hooks back onto those bars. Push the sides in and push the glove box back into place. You're all set.
