Hi guys my C3 LX 2002 has recently developed a noise issue on the blower motor sounds like the bearing is going so will be looking to swap it out.

However I have been unable to find any videos or information online as to how to do this, so need some help and guidance on how to go about it.

Cheers

Hi Billathome65,

Its a pain. You need to remove the glove box to be able to access the blower motor.

Remove the glovebox door - there are hidden screws you need to find (note the door is in 2 parts)
