Default blower motor

Does anyone know if you have to take the inner fender out to change the blower motor in a 1965 Bonnevill convert w/o a/c?

We have only a few members with cars this old. If you don't get a answer post again and we will try to answer this. I'm sorry to say my service manuals only go back to 96

Just looked at my 66 and yeah, you're going to have to pull the inner fender off, maybe even the fender.

Send a PM to SGP358. He seems pretty knowledgeable about vintage Bonnevilles. Certainly not questioning your comment Mike (we always appreciate the input), just trying to confirm with a second opinion since it'* a fairly major repair.

There are 2 ways to do this, the easy way and the right way and you seem to know both!

What most shops did back in the day was to make a large cross shaped slit in the inner fender well right behind the motor, peel the metal back, change the blower motor and fold back and heavily undercoat when you are done.

Depending on the shape of the wheel lip of the fender and inner well, you may want to go with the easy way.
