Removing wheel from blower motor

Hi guys,
The car is 78' Monte Carlo.
I need to clean and get blower motor moving. So I need to remove the wheel from it.
I removed the nut from the motor axle. Is there anything else that holds the wheel or I just have to pull it up?

Thanks for the help,
Ivo

The wheel should just pull off once the nut has been removed.

Another problem I had on my '75 was that in that year they used different motors for AC and non-AC vehicles. The motor shaft was a slightly different length, so I had to make sure I got the right one, or it would not fit back into the housing.

If it don't come right as it should spray it with PB blaster then it will come off. Cole

Hi guys,
Thanks for replays.
Please see the picture and let me know, is this metal insert (round and flat one) part of the plastic wheel or it is part of the axle?

It does not move at all and did not come off yet

Hey Cole, what is "PB blaster"? I am not native English speaker and also I am form Bulgaria, so I don't know if it is either some brand or term.

Thanks for your help,
Ivo

PB Blaster is a spray penetrate much like Liquid Wrench and others.

Thanks heyjude076,
It is not available here. I use WD40 or some other brand penetrating oil.
In this case nothing yet has helped

Hey Ivo, Just soak it down and let it set overnight if you can and the W-D40 should loosen it up . Cole

Usually a fer light taps on the end of the shaft with a plastic or brass hammer will get it moving.
Patience it the key as those plastic fans break rather easily.

If you have any penetrating oil it will help. WD-40 is not a good penetrating oil at all

I agree, But it's better than nothing i guess, I like PB Blaster best if he could find some where he is at. I figured soak it with what you have or can get and tap it like T-bucket said. . Cole

Hi guys,
Finally it is out... I needed to blow it with hot air gun to remove it. I was very rusty inside the plastic wheel.
Thanks for the help.

That stuff is great. It makes WD-40 look like Windex

Rack - it's a type of spray. That's what it's called. I'm not sure if you can get that over there, but if you can, make sure you grab some!
