    I have a chevy 3500 pickup and I need to change the blower motor. I thought it would be a good idea to get some suggestions before tearing out the dash. Anyone who has changed one out?

    Did one on a 99 burb a few months back, but its a 1/2 ton. Piece of cake. Cant see where yours would be any different, but I cant say for sure. Kinda tight when trying to get the new motor into the heater box, have to turn and twist to get it in there. Also, if I remember right, the bolts holding the motor in were 5.5m, which if memory serves me, I didnt have a wrench that size, only a socket. Should be a 30 min job if the 3500 is like a 1/2 ton. Everything is done from underneath by the heater box, I didnt have to tear out the dash as you suggest, but you might have a bigger job than i did.

    I just did this on my '96 K1500 Suburban.

    Remove the glove box by pulling in on the stops.

    Unhook 2 wires from the motor.

    Remove the plastic cover on the blower motor.

    Remove the bolts that hold the motor in. I think I used a 9/32" socket.

    Twist/pull motor out.

    I had to take the grounding tab from my old motor and put it on the new one.

    It's very easy. You can do everything from under the dash. If I were you and had the blower motor out, I'd clean out the A/C evaporator too. It's also pretty simple to do, and taking out the blower motor is half of the process!! And they supposedly sell evaporator cleaner at parts stores. Just don't be an idiot like me and use engine degreaser!! It STANKS!!

    This thread is sort of an ongoing "how-to" for what your doing.
