Any advice would be appreciated.
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.
