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

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the Blower Motor on this 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo. It's the same part and similar process on this Monte Carlos from 2001 to 2003.The items you'll need of this is a new Blower Motor from, a T20 Torx Driver and a flashlight.

Start off by just pushing in these two tabs, you can see we're missing one, but you just push them in and pull the panel down, twist out the socket, and just pull the bulb free. Your blower motors right here, and it's held in with three T20 Torx bolts. We'll just fast-forward as Mike removes those. Now, reach back, find the harness, pull it forward, and just push the tab on the harness and disconnect it. Then, using a flat blade screwdriver, pry open on this clip, push that harness all away aside, and pull the blower motor down and out. Then just disconnect this hose, pull your harness through it, and then just remove the rest of the hose from the other end.

On the left is the blower motor you've removed; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. The one we removed was already replaced, so you probably won't see that pigtail if you have an original motor in your car. It might change how you disconnect the blade just a little bit. Our new one from 1A Auto though, on the other hand, is just like the original, and will bolt in place and hook back up to the original harness no problem. Now, to make it easier to put the new blower motor in, you want to just pull out on this clip. Now, push the blower motor up into place. Just pull that harness aside.

Then replace those three T20 Torx screws. We'll fast-forward here as I put those in. I do start the first two that are easier to get to first. Put them in by hand and a few turns. Actually, I tighten them up snug with the driver, and that makes it easier to get the third one in and then tighten them all up. Reconnect the hose back, and then reconnect it to your blower motor, and put this loop back around the blower motor. Then find your harness and reconnect it. Now, put this clip back into place, put your harnesses back into the clip, and then just re-clip it. Push the bulb back into your socket, twist the socket back into this panel, feed the panel back, and then push up into place. You're all set.
