Default Blower motor swap

I'm about to go to the garage and swap my blower motor. Am I gonna have to pull the valve cover to have enough room to pull it out?

I did mine on my 95SSEi in a parking lot with very few tools. It was 100 degrees and I had a 3 hour highway drive to get home. Had to have AC immediately. The hardest thing was getting the old one to clear the strut brace bar to remove it. It took about 15 minutes of maneuvering to finally force it out, but it did come out without any other parts being removed.

Alright, first thing I did was remove the strut bar. The only hang up on the way out was the power steering hose that lays across the rear valve cover (and my aftermarket foglight wiring loom). It took some cajoling. But it came. The replacement went back the same way. Bolted it up all nice and tight... off kilter. Removed screws, rotated it back to the proper position and did it again. Good as new.

I pull the bracket on the back side that holds the fuel lines. Not sure if S1'* have it. Otherwise..a little turning should do the trick.
