2002 SL1
Wrench Correctly mounting an SL1 blower motor

This post is in regards to an '02 Saturn SL1.

My ol' girl had a failing blower motor (i.e. it starts smoking when powered). Bought myself a third-party replacement from my friendly neighborhood car parts retailer. It fits perfectly, but the holes for the screw posts on the new motor have diameters that are too wide for the heads of the mounting screws. I assume I need to take the housing off the old motor and put it on the new motor, but for the life of me, I've no idea how to get it off.

Any advice is appreciated.

Could you put a washer on the mounting screws to make the heads wider?

I absolutely could, but the bottom of the new blower appears to be considerably more exposed than the factory blower.

Is the size of the plastic rotating element of each blower-motor assembly the Same?
