Greetings from Mikey at Just Answer!

 

As blower motors go this one is fairly easy. Its accessible from under the dash on the passenger side. Here is the removal procedure from the workshop manual. They don't mention it but sometimes its easier to get room to work by removing the floor mat and pulling the carpet back on the passenger side under the dash below the blower motor.

Thank you. I have just one more question for you. Will this also fix the problem of not being able to have the blower motor work on any other level except for high? Or is this another problem to fix?

Thats a diiferent problem, the blower resistor usually. This part is located down there next to the blower motor. Some times the switch on the dash is roasted, but the blower resistor often fails causing no low speed fan operations.
