Question about 1997 Chrysler LHS
I think I have all the screws out on the dash, but the left and right edges seem to be screwed down yet. Whats holding them down?
There are 3 small bolts across the top where the front defrost grill is. 2 large bolts directly under the headlight switch and another big bolt lower right hand corner of the glovebox area.

Did you connect the lines? and did you break loose the tar that holds itto the car and seals the holes for the pipe? You maya have to remove the outter core cover to getto the last screws to get it out.

Just remove the 4 screws and then slowly pull the cluster out and reach behind and disconnect the plugs on the back of the unit and then remove the cluster. The bulbs can be removed by turning them and pulling out.

2001 had an early and a late production design for this HVAC unit. I just did one the other day and from what you are describing you have the early design. If the recirculation door raps around the bottom of the blower than you for sure have the early design. The labor time to replace the blower motor on this design is over 6 hours. It does require the removal of the dash to remove the HVAC housing so that you can finally remove that one screw up near the firewall that you cannot get to. Believe me I tried for about 1/2 hour to get at it. I have about 60,000 dollars invested in tools and over 15 years of experience, it cannot be done without either pulling the air box or breaking the housing where that screw attaches it to the air box.

Testimonial: "Telling me about what amounts to a really expensive poor mechanical design by Chrysler, I feel strange about thanking you for the bad news-but thanks."
