Look under the dash and also in front under the 'hood' to see what's the best way to access the plenum, the big black box that contains the fan, A/C evaporator, and the heater core. If you can get to the wires at the fan motor, I'd try directly applying 12v to it with jumper cables to be sure the motor is bad before removing it. I'd first check for a ground connection and see if in the fuse and relay box under the hood there is a relay for the fan. The fan speeds are controlled by a 'resistor pack' that has large resistance coils poked into the air flow of the fan inside the plenum. It usually has a multi-wire plug that is outside the plenum, either under the hood or perhaps under the dash. When it starts to fail, usually you lose some fan speeds in the dash fan control, defaulting to full fan speed, not dead. I'm sure you've checked the fuse for the fan before asking about accessing the fan.

If the blower issue is with the resistor, then the blower should work on some fan speeds, usually on the higher speeds.

b Jackson, on my 98 Fleetwood Pace Arrow, you can get to the blower motor by removing the kick panel in front of the passenger side seat. As I recall there were 4 screws holding this piece in place, my motor was just behind it. Here are some pictures showing mine. In the second picture you can see one of the screws holes toward the bottom of the wood furring piece. Also enclosed is a picture of my heater control on the dash. When my blower motor quit working it was a relay (I tried to indicate which one by putting an arrow on it in the 3rd. picture upper right corner). Hope this is of some help.

If you've only lost some of the fan speed levels, it would be a bad resistor pack or a faulty dash fan control. If you've lost all fan function, it could be a fuse, the relay, or the fan motor itself.

The fan only blows out the defrost vents, that's a sign that the vacuum lines are leaking. For safety reasons, the various vent dampers all default to defrost when the vacuum goes missing.
