I've seen a few blower motor fan replacement videos. Lots of screws to remove!

The fan in mine screeches now and then. I plan to prove or disprove the myth someday.
That would be a whole lot easier than removing the dash and center console. Iím a bit skeptical though as having yanked my radio and cd player for a double din unit, there is a plastic support structure back there to carry the factory pieces. Perhaps if you removed all this you could squeeze it of of the hole.

Iíve watched one you tube video where the guy makes it look pretty easy. Iím sure itís harder than he makes it look:
