Oops, sorry, I accidentally first posted this in the photos forum for 4th Gen Legacies. I should have gone here instead.
I'm replacing the heater fan in my wife's 05 Legacy in hopes that will cure the fan of intermittently not starting up at all in the mornings. (I've already replaced the main relay for the fan circuit, but that didn't cure the problem -- so I'm hoping I can cure this by replacing the fan itself.
The fan came from an OEM dealer with a complex plenum housing attached. Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace that whole unit, as opposed to just unscrewing the old fan and screwing the new one into the old housing where the old fan opening per se is located (by about 6 little screws around the perimeter of the fan)?
If doesn't require taking the whole dash out, maybe I should just put the whole new assembly in? But that depends (in my tiny mind) on how hard it is to replace the whole assembly rather than just the fan (always assuming the latter is as easy to do as it appears to be before I start this project).
