ok, the new blower motor is real loose w/o the cover; i'm off to the yard to se if I can score one.

next question: when I took the stut bar off the brackets, somethings fell off. What might they have been?

be back later
Timmay!

Two junkyards, Zero covers. Everything that had them were broken. :(

I can't find the part on Rockauto. Looks like maybe its dealer only.

I got a cover from the dealer for mine - I think it was $11. The longer screws made for the cover will be too loose without it.

I have a gasket from the blower motor in my 94 if its the same for the 96 Regency.

I'm not sure but I'll ship it to you for free if it does.

I appreciate the offer but I have the gasket intact. I'm concerned about the cover since the motor, new and original, both have a large holes in the case where you can clearly see the internals. The other styles at the yards looked to be all-metal sealed units w/o the large holes in the side.

I've just been too sick to go anywhere since. Theres nothing worse than calling in sick all week and really being sick :(
