Default Which blow motor do i want?

My blower motor is going bad (it wont work every once in a while unless i hit under the passenger side dash, then it usually starts back up)

Anyways, I was looking at rockauto.com and they have two different options for my '03 SE. They have an AC Delco blower motor and a Delphi blower motor. The AC Delco costs around $150 and the Delphi costs around $50. Here the blower motors are: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/rafr...&parttype=6916

DELPHI Part # BM10009
ACDELCO Part # 1580511

whats the difference between these two and which one do I need? I read the description to the AC Delco but I don't know what it means.

AC Delco is usually going to be more expensive because it'* stock. Other brands are just fine to use, but they're recreations of the original. Nothing wrong with them at all, they work just fine, I have one, but people sometimes just like paying a whole lot at the dealership. The way I see it, your 7 yr-old factory blower motor just died, so why pay so much more to get another one?

I paid $45 for my blower motor at Advance Auto Parts.

No need to spend money on a Delco as the aftermarket blower motors should be of good quality.
I had a look at my original blower motor and it was made in Korea and like I mentioned still good at 77000 miles.

I had to replace mine(its different than yours more than likely. there were three different motors available for mine). I got it for just $75 dollars off of ebay. Its an aftermarket, but it went right in and works better than the original. They should have more on ebay still.
