    2002 year, works intermittently. Starts if you kick the plenum somwhere in the middle, but not reliably.

    Where to start disassembly, and what other stuff (resistor, relay) could be the problem here?

    It is likely the motor since you can get it to turn sometimes. It is a PITA to change out

    Is the motor mounted on the outside of the firewall? I had a bad blower motor in an Olds 88. If I hit the motor it would run. You need a new motor.

    When you said "Lasabre blower motor" my first thought was a Lasabre with a big belt drive 671 blower sticking through the hood. I thought you had one mean 700 hp buick -:))

    Geez, I wish.

    Nah, this is my Grandpa car. 2002 year, not bad. 32 mpg on the highway, 22 in town.

    Winter coming on, and I need this fixed. just looking for someone with experience on this issue to save some time.

    There is a big black or grey thing on the firewall called a plenium. It has to come off and the motor is inside

    If the blower motor is outside firewall mounted see if you can spray some silicone spray into the terminal and bearing ends. I've been doing just that for about 4 years on an '02 Chevy S-10. Works for me.......

    Sometimes it is not the blower motor but the resistor that goes bad.
