I believe on that you have to actually remove the dash to gain access. Remove the speaker grill on top and there are a few torx screws under that. Remove the side access panels, when you open the car doors you will a panel on each side, they are just held in there by pressure and small nubs on the panels, you will find more torx screws. In the glove box on the top towards the front you will find a few more torx screws, also in that area there are two 10 mm bolts that are somewhat hidden but accessible. After all the bolts and screws are removed you can pull the dash cover off, becareful because on the passenger side, the airbag has a paper type cover on it, you don't want to damage that. From there you should be able to gain access to the heater blower on the passenger side of the vehicle. Good luck.

    I apologize, it is the defrost vent on the top of the dash, not speaker grill.

SOURCE: blower motor for a 1997 acura tl

Unless you are an expert do not even attempt this. This is one of the first things that they put into the car, it requires you take off the entire dash, drop down the steering column, remove multiple vents / ducts, remove the chiller, remove screws from inside the engine compartment. This is at least a 10 hr job if you are good.

SOURCE: Heater blower motor replacement -1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
