Sad 2001 Saturn A/C Heat Blower stopped working

Can someone help me. My 2001 Satrun L200 heater, A/C air stopped working. Not knowing much about cars. I checked the fuses and replaced the A/C Relay.. Wishing that would fix the problem.. NOPE.. Auto parts store thinks it may be the blower died / blower motor. Does anyone know where the location of the blower motor and is this a easy thing to replace myself?
Thanks, Cold in Idaho... lrslooney

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1-You do not need a/c for heat and the a/c failure itself has nothing to do with the blower.

2-Have you looked in the driver and passenger footwell areas for additional fuses? The access covers will have information embossed onto the inside of the covers as a guide to fuse application.

3-The blower is usually located on the passenger side under the dash - the large roundish looking thing taking up space near the glove box. Blowers hardly fail as much as fuses, switches, the printed circuit board containing the three-speed resistors to vary the fan speed, and the wiring.

fdryer - The a/c light comes on but no air comes out and the same with the heat.
I checked the underhood fuses, and the fuses on both sides of the foot well. All is fine..
A few days ago the heater was on high when all of a sudden it stopped. I just turned the heat off and then back on again and it was fine. working like normal, untill two days ago it just wont come on - no air blowing out..

Although I don't have a wiring diagram for an '01, this seems to me like an overheating wire connection issue with your latest info. Some poking around, starting at the fan area where the wiring exits and disappears into the main harness', some wiring going to the resistor card (may be hidden from view) where the three speeds are controlled from, back to the control panel, may reveal a burned/discolored wire or two. Using the HI fan setting uses the most power and connections usually suffer if they're loose, resulting in excess current heating the connection instead of going to the motor. Look for it. It may help to simply set the fan on LO or MED speed with or without the engine running and tugging the wiring in and around the blower motor which may result in a re-connection. Tug/pull/push slowly and stop to listen to the blower starting up as the last movement of wiring may lead you to the something. Having a wiring diagram would help. Removing the connector to the fan and wiring it directly to the battery will tell you whether or not the fan is worn out.
