Yes he was. I gave him a few suggestions to try to see if he could save the motor he has and hopefully he can. This how to is ready, if he needs it.

No cost repairs are the best kind. Smile

Well, I had a death in the family on Christmas Eve and had to bite the bullet and take the SilverMist in and have it fixed in a hurry.
I acted like I really knew what I was talking about by quoting this info.
Ended up needing a new blower AND resister!!
Only (and I use that term loosely) ended up costing around $250... so not too terribly bad. That's the price you pay for convenience...
Thank you very much for posting though.

You are welcome and very sorry to hear about your loss. There is never a good time for such things but espically heartbreaking around Holidays.

Thank you. I has been very difficult, but also expected for a while. Cancer may have claimed his life, but it lost the battle... because he is suffering no more.

From on of our new members.. Answer in the next post.

I've been reading your post on how to R & R the blower motor. Is this the correct procedure for a 08 HHR? You say "See Replacement of right side sound insulator." , but where do I find that? I did a search and came up with nothing. Also, I'm not real sure where I'm supposed to cut. And it seems that if I were to cut where I think I'm supposed to, the blower motor wouldn't come out. Please give me information so I can replace the B.M..
As a side note, this B.M. looks exactly like the ones on 60's, 70's, 80's chevys, and cost NEW 24 to 35 dollars, NOT this insane price they are asking for them now. Any help will be appreciated.

Welcome to the site Ken.

The insulator is the cardboard like pad that runs along the underside of the dash from the bottom of the glove box to the firewall. Held in by plastic buttons if I remember correctly. Pop out the buttons and save for reinstall.

Look at the picture where the razor knife is showing where to cut. The plastic molded ring that goes around the blower housing has two raised ridges with a low spot between them. Cut between the ridges along the low spot. The ridges keep the blade in the center and with a new blade it's pretty easy to cut.

Once you remove the insulator and look up there from the bottom with a light you will see exactly where it needs to be cut. Once the blower housing is cut the bottom housing piece (that you cut around) and the motor itself that is bolted to the piece you cut will fall straight down. Unplug the wire connector.

BUT, before you do this what is the motor doing that you need to replace it and the year of your HHR please. May be able to save you some time & $$$.
