hi,went through the removal of my blower fan last year it seized up,its pretty simple except for one screw,there are 4 small 1/4 inch screws holding the blower on,if you look up under the dash on passengers side you will see the blower(extreme right side)look for the screws and remove them there is the above mentioned screw in the far right corner against the floorboard/firewall its hard to get to i pulled my carpet down it helps some,make sure to unplug the electrical connection and it will come right out you should be able to remove your leaf,i did not reinstall the hard to get to screw mine works fine! good luck.

I have had that harness replaced or spliced and taped more than you could imagine, I had no air as much as I ever had air that worked. Several times we could smell the wiring burning before it went to working only on high on my 04 colorado and they are just now recalling it within the next few months. My mechanic called and they said the replacement harness is out and you should qualify for a refund if you don't want to wait, fix it now. It is nice after all this time!
#19 of 19 Heater Control Cable Problem
Jan 02, 2012 (6:21 pm)
I'm having a problem similar to capfsu had. Had the clicking noise, but kept trying the knob. I guess I twisted it a bit too much and a piece of plastic on the back snapped. I had to replace the whole system, but now, after I hooked up the heating control cable, the knob on the new one will only turn so much. I get resistance at a certain point when going towards a warmer temperature and if I keep pushing, the retaining clip will pop out, meaning I have to pull the whole panel off again and reattach the clip. So now the wire will only go in so far and the temperature will only get so warm (not warm enough sometimes!).
Is there anything I can do to this wire to get it to push further in, like it should? I'm pretty sick of all these Colorado problems. Have this issue, the blower issue, and now the valves on the head are going bad and I'm past warranty...
Thanks for the help on the wire.
