it was pretty easy, I just took my time. There were a couple of 5.5 millimeter bolts in the back that are tight against the fire wall. You have to pull back the carpet and insulator. It took me about two hours but I was at work at the time fetching parts for my techs. I think a good hour is reasonable time to complete. I didn't use any special tools.

I'm glad it was easy enough. What made you swap it out?

Nice. Hey look, DGGM! Very Happy 

I need to pull that cover off and take a look at mine, something tells me it might be misaligned in the housing and letting air from the blower pass by it instead of through it.

If you ever need to do it again, pull the passenger seat out. It's amazing how much room that gives you to work in there. Also, did you put RTV around the edges of the cover before putting it back in? They have a habit of leaking condensation from the AC onto the carpet once you disturb it.

I re-seal the lower cover..Arrow

Just keep an eye on it when you use the AC. If the underside of the passenger floor mat is wet, you have a problem. If not, just go with it Arrow
