    2003 Caravan heater blower headache

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the heater shroud on a 2003 Caravan?
    It is located behind the glove box. I have removed 3 visible lower screws and 1 upper screw but the shroud appears to be stuck at the rear agaianst the firewall which is not accessable.
    Trying to replace a blower motor. I can pry the shroud down and see the motor. So close but yet so far.....

    Check from the firewall side for some retainers (?).

    Send me an e-mail at:

    trdstr2000@sbcglobal.net

    and I will send you the write up from the F.S.M in the 2002 manual. It should be the same for your 2003.

    Put: 2002 Van blower motor R/R in the subject line so I know it is not junk mail.
