3) in order to remove the blower you need to remove the 4 torx screws. the bottom torx screw is hard to remove and extremely difficult to install. you need a flex extension to help you remove the bottom screws. the screws are at a angle


4) remove the right (passenger) flap and cover. this is mandatory and will give you more clearance


5) shift the blower to the right (passenger) and this is how you remove/install the blower without damaging the squirrel cages


follow the same seqences for the install

pivot


turn


shift

we lost so many screws and dropped so many that we had to think outside the box to get the bottom screw on. remember how I told you that the bottom screws are very hard due to the angle?

this is what you do...remove the blower...pre-install the bottom screws. place some painters tape to secure the screws and mount the the blower w/screws on




now that the screws are on...just tigthen them and remove the tape when you are done


finish product


put the covers back on
