Took car for inspection, failed because the defrost does not work. Was told the Fan Blower needs replacing at $1,150 plus 150.00 labor. Is there a schematic that shows how to replace the Fa n Blower and what the fan blower actually looks like?

What kind of inspection were you taking it in for? I know of no types of inspections where a fan that doesn't work properly would cause it to fail. Also,
1: if the fan blower were bad, NOTHING (AC, defrost, vents, heater) would work.
2: If the blower motor is bad, you're talking about a part that shouldn't cost anything more than MAYBE $200USD at the outside.
