you have to oviously remove the blower motor and unless you can get the heater hoses out there is a cut line on the far passanger sidethe whole front end of my car is off from the strut towers forward including the uni structure parts and the cradle and it was still a pain in the a$$. I couldn't imagine it with tthe car still together.

On the heater hoses. Sears and many others make a specific tool for removing spring hose clamps in impossible places. Took maybe 10 minutes for me to change the heater hoses the other night.

Hey griff,

Any instructions or pics would be helpfull. I am have the same problem. Had to change the powersteering pump on my 96 SSEi and found the whole HVAC cover has cracks and breaks like a chocolate Easter bunny.
I have never had any exhaust or heat problems. I wonder if this stuff is biodegradeable and is breaking down prematurely.
I am sure this part on my 91 was made of fiberglass.

I haven't tackled this project yet. A few other things have gotten in the way, like a tranny repair and tranny/motor mount replacements. Right now, it has a universal bandage on the cover (duct tape). I will be happy to post some pics as soon as it works it'* way up the priority list, but be warned, it may take awhile. Besides, Dame has me a little scared of the whole deal!
