Default 08 Nissan Sentra Blower Motor Removal & Installation

I have a 2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 and the Blower Motor just stopped working, I replaced the Resistor and that blew out after just hours. I removed the Glove Box to locate the Blower Motor and after some looking, I found it up near the top center of the Dash towards the Drivers Side just a tad. You cannot get to it from the Drivers Side and you can barely get to it from the Passengers Side. Under the center Dash there is a Black Unit where everything (Blower Motor, Heater Core, AC, Vents...etc) are connected together, so I can't just take out the Blower Motor.

My question is: How do I properly remove step by step, the Blower Motor without tearing up my whole Dash Board and creating other problems? I cannot find anything on the Internet for Removal or Installation of a 2008 Nissan Sentra, I hope you can help.

Unfortunately you can't. You have to remove the dash to access the blower motor.

Instruction to remove the dash are in the "Instrument Panel" section of the service manual. You can download the section free from here: 2008 Sentra Service Manual - Loose Sections - Free with Registration - Nissanhelp.com

Default 08 Nissan Sentra Blower Motor Removal & Installation

NissanTech - Are you sure that I have to take apart the whole Dash Board in order to get at the Blower Motor? Looking at it from underneath on the Passenger side, it looks like I can't get at it from the top either. There is some obstruction that may be in the way.

By the way, thank you very much for your input and the PDF file. Are there any Service Manual illustrations on the Blower Motor itself?

You can find more information on the "Manual Air Condition" section of the service manual. You can download the section free as well from here: 2008 Sentra Service Manual - Loose Sections - Free with Registration - Nissanhelp.com

I had this problem with my 08 as well, it's almost impossible to get to it by yourself. After days and days of trying I caved and just took the car to Nissan.

"F"ing Nissan, pardon my French! I may have to cave too!! I can't believe how they would have their collected heads so far up their butt's and move this blower motor from where you can get at it under the glove box, to where you can't. Or they did this on purpose so you have to pay a million dollars to them. Either way, they lost a future customer.

Default Question re the removal

Does the entire diassembly process need to be done to get at the blower? Or only parts of it? There serms to be alot of sub-assembly removal that could be skipped (at least on firt reading).
