     First of all, you will have to open the passenger’s front door. Get under the glove box, because the blower motor is located there. You must first remove a foam panel, that covers the air cabin filter box an the blower motor. This panel is held by two plastic clips. They can be removed using a flat blade screw driver, as you can see below.

     After that, remove the foam cover completely. The blower motor is up underneath, a little to the right. There is a tab that you pull down and, after you rotate the blower motor counterclockwise, you will be able to detach it (see picture below).
