My 2012 blower motor is about to go out, it’s ticking real bad and it works when it decides to. As a temporary fix until my new one comes in, I just give it a few kicks and it works again. Your video will be very helpful for when I change it out, thank you so much!

Thanks for the video. – made removal so easy! I think I would have gotten frustrated and broke something while cutting the adhesive, but your demonstration eased the pain a bit. My replacement was all-in-one. I just had to screw the unit back in. I think it would have been a little easier if it had the separate bracket like yours, but still works great.


It’s like GM designed it for failure. Job security for their techs. Doable nonetheless

Great video. I gave my 2011 Malibu LTZ rto my Grandson and the blower just quit. Now I'll know how to replace it. I am sure the dealer would want 100's just for the labor.
