In this video, we show you how to replace the blower motor resistor on this 2014 GMC Terrain. The only tools you'll need for this is a 7mm socket and a 1/4 inch socket and a ratchet. On the passenger's side, underneath the glove box, you want to remove this panel and it's held in with three 7mm bolts. One more, the third one right there. We'll just fast forward as Don removes all three of those. Now pull this panel straight back so it releases this clip. Your blower motor resistor is located right here and you want to start off by disconnecting these harnesses, just push on the tabs and pull them free.

The resistor is held in with two 1/4 inch bolts and we'll just fast forward as Don removes those. Once the bolts are removed, the resistor will just pull down and out. Take your new resistor and push it up into place and replace those two 1/4 inch bolts. We'll just fast forward as Don does this and tightens those up. Reconnect those two harnesses. Take this panel and you want to push these two clips into these two slots, push them back in and push the panel up and then replace those 7mm bolts. Then you are all set.
