Q: My a/c blower don't blow.

asked by on

The blower only works if I give a good smack to a black panel under the glove box but eventually after about 20 minutes it stops again. How do I access that blower?

My car has 115000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The blower is under the black panel you smack every time to get it going. You may need to pull the cover off and pull the carpet back and remove a bracket and module to get access to motor. The motor comes out with a twist.
