Start with the cover closed and remove the four screws that hold the frame to the lower dash. Next open the compartment and remove the two screws at the top. Remove the connector to the switch and pull the box and frame out as a unit.

You are welcome. If you run into problems just ask. Why are you pulling the box out? Trying to get to a heat actuator or?

I can only locate three of the four screws that hold the bottom of the door to the dash frame. (Also the two at the top) Would I have to remove the right kick panel to find the other screw?
The drawings sent with your reply also indicate four screws but I can only locate three.

Take a look at these attachments. As you will see there are actually 5 screws holding this in place.

Please run through this and let us know what you find. If you are still having issues, can you get a video or picture of what you are looking at so that we can be sure to be on the same page.

Thanks

The screws should be the only thing holding the box in the dash.
