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

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the blower motor on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. The items you'll need for this includes a new blower motor from 1AAuto.com, a 7mm socket and ratchet, a 7/32 socket, and a flat blade screwdriver.

You want to start off by removing this panel below your glove box, and it's held in by these three, 7mm bolts right there. We'll just fast-forward as Don removes those, and you really only have to remove the two on the outside. The one towards the center of the vehicle, you can just loosen.

Now your resistor's held in with two, 7/32 bolts. Just go ahead and remove those. Now push the tab on this harness and disconnect it, and then up here, on your blower motor, is the other end of your resistor harness. You want to just push the tab on this and disconnect it. Your blower motor is held in by this tab. You just want to use your flat blade screwdriver, pry the tab down, and twist the blower motor counterclockwise, and that will pull down and out.

On the left is the old blower motor; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're very similar, and they'll fit exactly the same. Take your new blower motor and just push it back up into place. You want this tab to slide in right here, and then turn it clockwise, and it will lock into place.

Now reconnect the blower motor resistor. Push the resistor back up into place, and replace those two 7/32 bolts. We'll fast-forward as Don tightens those up. Now, reconnect your resistor harness. Now push this panel back up into place, and then replace those three 7mm bolts. Just tighten them up, and we'll fast-forward as Don does this. Once you've done that, you're all set.
