I do not believe the instructions are correct. There should b no reason to discharge the air conditioner to replace only the blower motor.
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

Once you remove the side panel you will see where the blower motor is mounted and why you need to remove the housing and discharge the freon..

Glad I could help,
