It will be my last resort, it takes 5. The "Stealership" will want $5.00 each need 5.

I have the blower motor $30.00.
This is the Acustic cover cut out, it was easy to cut with a carton knife.
There is corasponding tabs on the other part still on the van. A Youtube video say to discard the Acustic cover.
I will put it back some how, there is one screw that holds it on.
The clips were not on there, cost cutting I am sure!

On the right, the printing says to cut between the lines!

Put the the new blower in and working good. As for the clips, I line up both tabs and used a hot nail to make holes, and used small zip ties to hold it in place. I bent a nail on a 45, held it with vise grips and heated it with propane torch.

Took 1.5 hours, can be done in an hour after knowing what to do!

My man!! That's why it's called DIY forum, not running to dealership and forking for plastic clips. Next time maybe short self tapping screws?

Plastic little brittle screw would crack, it not enough room to use plastic pop rivet.
