A friend and I did two of these last year. Check out Chris Millers site
for the "steak knife" method. This job is not hard just a PITA. Just
unhook all the stuff under the dash and then work from the top. The part
that provides the most challenge is getting the seal around the unit to
pop loose. Having two bodies does make it easier. You will not need to
cut the air duct as it says on the job description, just pry it out of
the way. Having two sets of hands helps when prying the whole unit out
and tilting it the pull the fan out. The r&r portion with the fan is
easy, it is just journey to get there that is a bit tedious. When
dropping the unit back in have the someone underneath to make sure all
the ducting is going back on correctly. While you have the dash and
glove box out look up in the fresh air vent and check to see if the
return spring is good. Beats going back down there again.
MY fan was toast the bearings were gone and the brushes were practically
non existent. My fan would only work on hard freeway clover leafs going
to the left.
