Because likely of a mouse, Dealer wants 600 Bucks to fix a 50 Dollar part..Does anyone know of a easier way to get at the Blower from under the dash on the left side? I have seen a good video but for the life of me cant find it now..Its a bad design!

$600 at a dealership isn't that bad considering you have to take the whole dash out.

The blower is at the top right of the HVAC assembly, behind and slightly above where the radio is..

If you intend on doing this yourself, I would highly recommend you go to a You Pull It and take a dash off a Versa there. It gives you an idea of what is involved,
and what can break if removed improperly.

If you do go this route, keep the screws from the U pull It dash.

Try googling evaporator replacement on youtube. I found these two and am unsure if they apply but at least may give you some reference point.

If your blower motor is located on the driver side of the cabin air filter box, it is one hell of a job to remove. The older models had the motor located on the passenger side which made it an easier job.

^ The Sentra in that lower video doesn't look bad since all you have to do is remove a lower dash piece, the brake pedal assembly and computer component. The videos I've seen on the Versa sedans required those basic components and a lot more. If it was my daily driver and in the winter time, I'd gladly (well not really..) pay someone $600 to fix that.

You've got a 2011 Versa. So do I. This is the YouTube vid I followed with success. You do not need to pull apart the dash. Very simple and not much more work than replacing the cabin filter.


In my case I had a clicking noise. I assumed the motor was going out. The car was still covered under an 8 year 120k mile warranty so I brought it into the dealership. Silly me. Dealership claimed diagnosing the noise or replacing the motor wasn't covered. Exsqueeze me?

I refused to pay anything. Found the above linked vid and assessed the issue. Turned out it was just the part number sticker from the blower motor itself that came off and was clicking on the fins of the blower. Think of a playing card hitting the spokes of a bicycle tire.
