    Well the motor is really noisy and needs to be replaced so i'm looking to you guys as to see how difficult and approximately how much time it will take on my 1993 Chevy 1/2 ton extended cab with ac.

    Its very simple. Just do what sweetk30 said to make it a little easier, and you should be done in under an hour.

    Pretty much like the other guys already mentioned.. but here a few additional details...

    The cover Sweet mentioned is a plastic cover over the heater box that needs to be removed to pull the blower motor out of the case..it what you see when you look under the dash and it goes up and over the top of the heater box assembly...

    To get the cover off, you'll need to remove the engine ECM that's mounted above the heater box to allow you to remove the one darn screw on top that also holds the cover on..and it's a pain to get to that screw as it a little cramped even with the ECM out. Make sure you disconnect the battery before you unplug the connectors from the ECM..

    Once you get the cover wiggled off, you'll see the blower motor on the box.. in most cases it won't clear the bottom of the dash when you go to pull it out of the box so you'll probably need to remove the bolt holding the lower dash section to the side of the cab and then pull out on the lower part of the dash to get the motor completely out of the box... to get that bolt out you'll need to remove the kick panel and partially remove the molding at the front of the door opening. It sounds worse than it is as these tips will make it a little more straight forward for you...
