How to remove in fender blower box

I'm trying to clean up the under hood area in preparation for my AC condenser and I realize this huge chunk of plastic in the fender needs to come out. Do I need to pull the fender to do this. I took a cursory look and I don't think its coming out trough the engine compartment.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
Oscar

I'm assuming you mean the plastic blower "reservoir" (for lack of a better term) and not the heater blower itself.

No need to pull the fender. I've done this before, and literally just did it yesterday. Just unbolt the bracket that holds the coolant reservoir (take reservoir out first), then do the same for the wiper fluid reservoir and bracket. Wingtop vent take that off too, and there are 2 screws under the vent that holds that plastic heater intake in place.

You'll need to flex the fender up slightly and push the plastic heater thingy down/flat and you should be able to get the small side towards the front of the truck out and then the whole thing slides out.

If you use Jason's method, if it's old it may split like mine did. They're fairly inexpensive, and duct tape will also work for repair.

If it wasn't for the prior owner welding a few brackets it would have come out much easier. Came out in two pieces the blower and the "reservoir thing".

Ryan, sent you a PM.
