Default Having trouble finding the correct blower motor

I have gotten the ones with the plastic housing before but they won't mount up. I have the metal housing one and those match up great. Every parts store either online or brick and mortar shop has the plastic ones. Has anyone else had the problem?



This is the one I need.

Is it possible you need the following to get the currently available blower motors to fit: BLOWER MOT BRACKET P/N 88957446 together with 3 BOLTS 89018611 (the part numbers are AC/DELCO)

I believe there was a design change.....the original blower motor was a one piece of hunk of plastic that is hard to get out and almost impossible to put back in without breaking it....the redesign was a two piece design that was much easier to install.....

You are likely right, but I thought the change was on the 00-02 Bonneville blower motors near impossible to replace, and they modified the access and possibly the mount in 03-05 Bonnevilles.

Not sure If this helps but last year my blower motor stopped working. before buying a new one I took mine apart and found that the inside of the motor was filled with dirt. I vacuumed out what I could. took a brass wire brush to the armature and sprayed everything down with electrical contact cleaner. put it back together and it has been working fine ever since.

We are guessing buying the motor and the brackets and screws will be a solution.

ALl I could find was the plastic ones as well, not sure how you got that metal one, maybe the design was discontinued, from what the others said that is what it sounds like.
All I could find that was supposed to be IE was GM 89018521, which is an AC Delco one.
Good luck finding that exact one again!

Did some checking- I specualte you may be getting a "universal" 200-2005" blower motor- which doesn't fit either very well 00-01.... 02-05.

Here is a way to address. If the motor you are buying will also fit in a 2000 SSEi- stay away from that motor, it is a universal motor and can be a big hassle to install. Find a blower motor that will work in your 2003 SSEi and not in a 2000 SSEi and you that will likely be 15 minute install.
