Installation done. Feels good to have heat again! Anyone attempting to do this install should buy OEM with removal blades. Makes the job VERY VERY VERY easy (I know this because I tried ACM blower and broken several fins attempting to install).

All I did was take both blades out and put them back ones the motor was in place. I installed an updated FSR as well. THat was a quick install except you have to contort your body to get underneath that glove compartment area. For a 6 foot 4 guy, I have been abused!!

Guys, while sliding the motor in, I pushed the directional flaps on the Left too far and managed to BREAK it (its sitting in the trunk..just the flap and not the housing). Which button on the HVAC in the car controls that one? For now, I am happy I have heat but might have to replace the broken flap eventually!

Nice DIY..saved myself at least $1000 but being able to do it is more rewarding!!!
