Blower motor replace
I just finished this, and it was remarkably easy.
The motor is definitely removed by rotating counter-clockwise. The key for me was to first reach behind the motor and release the back clip. I used my finger to lower the tab about 20 degrees, and then it was easy to rotate the motor. Installation of the new motor is clockwise.
Thanks for the write up. The whole thing took about 30 minutes or less.
