Get a manual on your car and it will have pictures and everything. Some parts stores have them Also they didn't make Corsica's after 1996.
Buy a new one and you will see what it looks like and it is mounted on the evaporator case.
The heater core should be located on the passenger side just below the dash. There should be a plastic cover over the core that will have to be removed first. But, before you …remove the heater core, make sure to drain the cooling system of antifreeze and add NEW antifreeze after completing the repairs. First, drain the cooling system. Then, trace the 2 black rubber lines from the water pump to the firewall at the heater core and disconnect them. now move to inside of the truck and locate the heater core cover and remove it (carefully though, these things will crack easily). You should then be able to access the heater core and remove it ( there will be a couple of metal straps that hold it in place...just remove one of the small mounting bolts for each strap). If you don't feel comfortable with these directions, your local parts store should sell either a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual for 1982-1993 s10's. You can pick one up for less than $20. It will have detailed instructions on how to do this and many more repairs.
heater resistor removal . heater resistor will be located in the upper section of the plastic trunking for the air flow from the cowl grill. It should have 3 prongs fitted …for the wiring and normally 2 screws to hold it in place. Remove the screws and the resistor should pull right out.
Answer . \nDrop the glovebox door and you will have access to it.
The blower resister is located under the dash in the passanger footwell. You will have to remove the shroud that extends along the underside of the dash. You will see the blow…er motor and the wiring harness, the resistor is in front of the blower. Just disconnect the harness from the resistor and two screws and the resistor should drop out. If the resistor is original eqipment the replacement from GM is slightly different. You don't need the plastic retaining part when you put the new one in. Expect some problems putting the shroud back in place... Hope that helps.. I had no high blower and after checking harness with a multimeter had over 14 volts at the plug. Resistor/relay faulty. It is held with two 7/32" head screws and had to unplug two harnesses (carefully with small screw driver, the harnesses are held in with clips that are part of the plug). At my napa store there was two types of resistors, I removed old one first to match. Reverse procedure to install.
Answer . \nIts very easy, go to your local GM parts counter and order a pigtail for the blower motor resistor harness, all you need to do is cut and connect the appropria…te wires together and youll be all set.
Answer . you have to take the dash out.it's a big project.
It should be above where the passenger places their feet. Facing the firewall.
Here's are some simple steps The process is simple. 1. First locate the resistor housing which will be in the front passenger footwell right above were the passengers feet …would be. It's easy to find just look for a plug with various colored wires, red, brown, light blue, yellow black and purple. 2. This is the resistor housing...you should see two or three 7/32 screws which hold the housing into the blower motor assembly. Remove the screws and the resistor module should slide out. 3. Follow the purple and black wires back to the blower motor connector. Squeeze and pull the connector...this may take a number of tries but it will come out. If you can not get you fingers or a tool in to depress the clip on the connector to release, try removing front screw of fan motor cover. The plastic cover drops enough from the front to see the connector clip clearly, then aim a long screw driver to depress the clip for release. The part number on the module is 15305077 but you will have an easier time finding it on the Internet or via a parts dealer if you use the GM P/N 89019089. This part is available at major retail auto part stores. To re-install the module just do everything in reverse...If you continue to have problems with the resistors "burning out" you may have an over-voltage problem in the blower motor, which should be check out by a professional.
the relays are behind the glove box. you have to take the glove box out to have access to the relay for the heating system
Remove the glove box, Remove the lower trim panel from the facia above the passenger side footwell and the lower trim panel from the centre of the facia. . Release the retain…ing clip and remove the passenger side front footwell air duct. . Disconnect the wiring connector from the fan motor, noting the correct routing of the wiring. . Working your way around the fan motor air distribution housing, undo the retaining screws, then unclip the motor from the housing . Remove the fan motor . From inside the car, reach up behind the air disribution housing, and disconnect the wiring connector from the underside of the blower resistor which is on the left hand side of the air distribution housing, unclip the resistor from the air distribution housing.
Use a 5.5 mm socket to remove the three bolts in the panel underthe dash, then remove the 2 bolts out of the blower resistor.Disconnect the wire connector, then remove the res…istor.
In Chevy S-10
Under the hood, on the firewall, passengers side.
Next to the battery on the passenger side. Gotta reach down a little for it. Took me a while to find it..
Normally the wires and plug in can be purchased at the GM dealership. Will have to cut the wires back if they are melted and solder the wires together. Can also use a heat shr…ink butt connector to connect wires. Recommend the heater resistor be replaced and the heater blower motor be checked for wear or noisy bearings.
It may not be equipped with one. If it is you would easily see the cord.
