I'm talking about the lower air inlet housing and the 4 screws you mentioned for it. The diagram you sent is for the motor assembly.

Ooops. Sorry about that. After going through every image of the HVAC housing provided by Dodge, unfortunately, there isn't one clear one that shows the location of all 4. If i'm not mistaken, there is one tucked up in the right corner, and then around rim of the housing. I would suggest starting from the first one you can see, and feel around the edge.
