Re: Blower motor extraction
You're trying to do this job the right way...try doing it the wrong way!
(which is probably the right way).
Pry the air box up with a large screwdriver..just lever it down between the
metal bulkhead and the air box..right on the seam up the middle of the air
box. There is a prybar sized step right there on the plastic to help you.
Once the box is up, you can see two of the three phillips screws that hold
in the fan & motor. They're on the passenger side of the air box assembly
at the end of the big flexible air inlet hose. Take out the two screws.
Now comes the moment of decision...am I going to be smart or terminally
perfectionist & anal??? I think a smart person will push down on the air
inlet for the fan & break off the ear for the bottom screw. You may prefer
not to in which case I will not tell.
Pull the old fan assembly out, align & install the new one, & put it all
back together. Twenty minutes on a good day.
