96 Deville Blower Motor.

Recommended Posts

OK, Folks. Where's the best place to get a new blower motor for a 96 Deville, and what is the easiest way to replace it?

If you can get really lucky you can try and locate the 3 piece one that requires no modification.

I did that with mine as I did not want to drop the subframe. The 1 piece motor is not very easy without dropping the front of the cradle or tipping the engine forward a fair amount

Even if I take the coil packs off?

Is the 3 piece an original blower motor?

Mine still works, but it's vibrating really bad on high.

Not sure to be honest.

My 96 had the 3 part one. I found a good used one and replaced it. I like it. Much better than the 1 piece plastic one

Was nice as there was no removal of anything. I will see if I can find a number for that setup. 

Here is one listed on Ebay  # 292494125945

BLOWER MOTOR W/ 5 BOLTS BLOWER MOTOR***5 BOLTS
interchange #
615-00219
This part will fit these makes and models with these options
DEVILLE 94-99 5 mounting bolts
ELDORADO 94-02 front, 5 mounting bolts
SEVILLE 94-97 front, 5 mounting bolts

OK, so I gotta ask you another dumb question. What if the one I have is 1 piece? Can it be forced out without having to tilt the motor? I can always probably break it out.

It can come out. Likely by breaking the cage.

I bet that is what happened on the install. That is why it would vibrate

sometimes the cage may get fractured either in shipping or during install, 

Then later on it will break or split as it cycles

I've had the car for 13 years and never replaced it while I had it. I got it when it was 9YO. Don't know if it's ever been replaced in the first 9 years so don't know if the one in there is the original really. Anyway to tell? I have such a bad temper and and very little patience so I'm looking for the easiest way to do this. Was gonna hit the bone yards this week to see if I can find one. What other years or cars can I get one from? Maybe I'll get lucky and find a car with no engine.. ?

95-99 IIRC

The 3 part one I have seen hit or miss. Up to around 97. 

That is the one my 96 had. It sure seemed to be original on mine.

Both of my 97s have the 1 part motor.
