Question AC Blower doesn't always work/start... Please help

I have a 2006 350z that the AC Blower works when it wants to... I have searched and found that it may be the relay but I cannot locate it on my ride... Any help would be great!!!

Yes it does. It's the blower and I believe the relay. Hot air or cold. It just doesn't blow. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Is it only when you start it up? or Sporadically while driving?

Just in general. When I start the car it may not work. Them go somewhere and start car again and it works. Or doesn't work 10mins then will work. Once it starts its good to go

Blower really which is on the back side of the interior fuse box. It's a BLUE relay.

FOUND IT! !

It's right behind the fuse box.. so when you look right next to the dead pedal.. there should be a flap that you can open.. just open it and you'll see whole bunch of fuse and sht.. the relay is located right behind that box.. I know it sounds crazy but trust me it's there.. somehow get that ***** out and look behind it you'll see two blue relay change both out.. one is for blower fan and another one for something else but its hard to tell which one is which but they are both the same.. so yeah replace them both and you should be good to go!

I think i found the correct relay. Does this look similar to the ones you replaced? Link to part
Do these look like them ?

You take the fuse block off behind the access panel next to the dead panel and it's behind that fuse block? or its on the back side of the fuse block?

I think they are the same part?
