Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum Discussion, What goes in this rectangular hole? in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; I think the whole airbox setup is completely different for the 93 and older. It's a whole other body style ...
yeah that blower control module setup that plugs into the hole in the top of the housing goes back to the 80's ... E,K,C,D body vehicles all used a module with a heatsink that dropped into the box (probably to get fresh air to cool off the module (the're already putting a heatsink of the 'chip' so you know it gets hot)
part numbers change through the years and the housing design changes with the body style changes
but the overall design goes back pretty far it seems
I think the whole airbox setup is completely different for the 93 and older. It's a whole other body style and they don't fall apart on those.
Take pictures when you replace it, I want to see the progress and what it looks like underneath it.
My 92 Eldorado is different, it's metal.
I'll take pics as this may be a little harder than I thought. It's pretty tight back there just swapping out coils paks. The new one is flexible, not sure if it's flexible enough to get in without moving the motor.
Whew, I think the car won that round. Pictures coming soon and not from the bottom unless I get one of those snake cams. You can't see anything, the steering and cross member is in the way.
I need to figure a better way to move the engine forward. I bought a turnbuckle from Home Depot and it did not have enough throw to pull it forward enough to get the blower fan out. I'm going to try 1 large and 1 small turnbuckle with a J hook on one of the ends and see if I can hook the J to part of the frame or rig something up. It was frustrating.
The heat shields screws weren't too bad to get to. The right one hold the heat shield over the blower motor also. The bottom 4 screws are going to be
I can't get to them from the bottom or the side. It's all by feel. With a little more clearance, I should make it.
My plan it to use a propane space heater to warm up the rubber cover on the heater core side and along the bottom crease. The heater core side will be the toughest to get in. I've tested the bottom crease of the new cover and it does flatten out nicely. So it should slide in and I'm thinking i need to "pin" it while it cools off. Put something like a pick in the bottom screws holes so it goes back into shape while cooling.
