Well I started last night. I have the steering column pulled and the dash ripped out. I just unscrewed the FIVE(I thought there was four) firewall nuts and now the housing is loose. Gonna undo the heater core hoses and refrigerant lines now and see where I end up. Wish me luck.i took a ton of pictures mainly so I wouldnt forget where stuff goes.

i have to change out mine too... judging by the pictures, I'll pay the guy the $1200 he quoted me for that and fixing the vent doors.

Thanks for saving my insanity (despite the 1200 i'm gonna spend)
