Well, the guide itself has pretty much all the pictures you would need.
I followed the guide today and took the entire blower motor out and took off the casing as well. I cleaned it up using some WD-40 and made sure the bearing was nice and lubed up. So far no squeaking or squealing - knock on wood. The only problem I see is that the blower fan itself is kind of wobly, which could be causing some of the issues as well. My diagnosis of that is time for a new blower. More than likely, next time I get paid, I will just buy one so I can feel at ease about it.
I will keep this thread updated on how long this fix lasts.
Thanks for everyone'* help in determining what was causing it in the first place!
