Does anyone have a magic formula for removing the blower motor? I know where it is and have access to it but I cannot get the thing out. What does it take to get the thing out?
Do you
have the same problem?

Remove insulation, glove box and DIM module and bracket that will give room for blower to come out.

I have done all that but it will not come out. I rotated it as much as I could which is about 10 degrees but it will not come out. Do you have to remove the rubber covered insulation under floor carpet? It seems to be binding on that rubber covered insulation.

I have the carpet pulled back and it still does not rotate enough to get it out. It hangs up on the rubber covered insulation under the carpet. This rubber covered insulation extends up the firewall. Does this black rubber covered insulation have to be removed? How many degrees does it have to be rotated and in what direction?

I don't know what the problem is but I cannot get that thing out. I have been working for two days to try to get it out. I guess I will have to take it to the shop and pay big bucks to get it repaired.

I took the IP storage compartment out and everything the instructions call for. The blower housing will not turn enough or tilt enough to come out. If it can be taken out I don't know how that is accomplished. I have followed all instructions I can find on the internet and your instructions and still cannot take it out. I don't think that any of what you have sent has helped at all.

I have the same problem. Can not get the blower housing to drop low enoufg tp come out. The rubber backing and the firewall will not allow me to turn on drop the housing enough to come out. What a drag. I've unscrewed a lot of hard to get scnd up this wayrews and unpluged too many cables to end up unable to remove the blower. Going to be embarassed taking the car to the dealer this way. Hope they don't charge me more money.
