Thats is to remove the blower motor
Na Na Na, the heater motor can be removed from under the extreme right dash!
But the question is: how does one remove the 5th retAINING screw from the bottom cover that is way up behind the cover? The front 4 are easy, but while the 5th can be seen with a mirrow, it's seems impossible to engage it with a socket ,even on the end of a flex extension. I've read the best thing to do is to pry down onthe cove until the plastic cover tab that the 5th srew fastens just breaks away.
Na, Na, Na, this answer is of no help. The problem fastener is in far front, that is, behind the cover against the floor/firewall, and it needs to be removed from the bottom not the top, not the top. By removing the floor matts and the floor insulation, it IS barely seen in a small mirror and maybe accessible with a flex drive. I'll keep try to engage that screw. In any case, your answers are NOT accepted.
