  • On vehicles with automatic climate control only, remove the service access cover mounting screws (1).
  • On vehicles with automatic climate control only, remove the service access cover (2).
  • On vehicles without automatic climate control, remove the blower motor resistor.

    Important: Mark and use the same mounting bolt for the heater/vent module during the installation process. Other mounting bolts are longer and will obstruct the operation of the temperature door.

    Important: The heat/vent mounting stud has a flange on the inside and cannot be removed from under the hood. Stop turning the stud after the threads are off the heat/vent module.

  • On the Utility only, while an assistant inside the vehicle pulls the bottom right corner of the heat/vent module approximately 2.5 mm (1 in) back, remove the 2 heat/vent module mounting studs.

  • On the Utility only, loosen the HVAC module mounting studs until the threads are free from the heat/vent module.

    I am sorry... Ok I have AC only. I removed the bolt under blower resister and the bottum one under the unit. Are the rest under the right wheel well? How many total bolts are left for me to remove?

    Expert:  Carhelp4u replied 5 years ago.
    Yes the wheel well hides 3 of them. Then there is the nut out under the hood near the heater hose. This sounds like all you would need to remove.
    Customer: replied 5 years ago.
    Great thanks. I will not be able to get to this till thursday or friday. If I run into issues will i still be able to contact you?
