I am attempting to replace ac blower on 2005 Prius. Supposedly it's three screws under dash and it comes out. I've removed a black plastic cover. There is a metal box with a electrical harness that is removed with two screws. What next?

The instrument panel must be removed to get this blower out! I have attached the workshop manual instructions below for your review! If you had this vehicle to the dealer for this repair, the labor charge to replace the blower motor would be 3.5 hours

Mmmm. I have seen multiple references to it being under dash on passenger side. Can the white plastic cover be removed to access under dash?
Expert:  Superbob replied 5 years ago.
I do not believe so, it has been six years since I last did one and I followed the manual instructions that I sent you to do it and did not try to remove this cover
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
ok. i think i've not communicated clearly. I am attempting to replace only the blower motor and fan. its all one priece. I'm not attempting to replace the entire blower assembly.

Perhaps another technician will be able to help you better, I will opt out and allow your question to go back to the board where others can see it

Ok

If one can help, you should hear from someone soon, If you reply back to me it takes your question off the board and they cannot see it
