You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.

Yes. Put a jack under the motor and remove 3 bolts from side of engine and the long center pivot bolt in mount and the 2 bolts that go top down into the frame and loosen the 2 bolts below mount. Jack up the motor until you can separate the mount, leaving the engine side in and removing the frame side. The engine side can be moved out of the way without completely removing.

The blower motor is vertically mounted below the glovebox on the passenger side. To replace the motor, follow these basic steps. It's actually very simple when you figure out how to contort your body so you can work on it.
You need to remove the bolster cover under the glovebox. To do so, just slowly pull the bolster out from the sides of the passenger side until you come to a plastic, one way connector. (Kinda looks like this -->) |>>>> They are ribbed and impossible to pull out. Take some wire cutters or diagonal cutters and clip the plastic connectors. They are cheap connectors that you can buy for $0.50 a bag at any auto supply shop. When you work your way through the connectors, remove the bolster and the blower motor cage should be visible. It will be lodged behind a mass of wires, and you won't have much room to move in. Look/feel for an electrical connector on the back side of the blower motor and try to seperate that first. If it is too tight, take off the mounting hardware first and see if that gives you more room. There should be three or four nuts securing the blower motor to the base behind the glovebox. Remove these and the motor should simply fall downward. You will have to adjust the wiring to pull it entirely out, but it shouldn't take long. Simply wiggle the new one in the same way you got the old one out. There may not be the same number of mounting screws or they may not line up exactly like the old ones, but it should fit in a particular position. Try rotating it.
When the motor is back in and the screws are back. Test it out and try all the speeds. If everything is working. Take an old plastic connector to a autostore and find matching ones. Reapply the bolster and snap some fresh connectors into the holes. That's all there is to it.
