NRV Tradewind

2003 NRV Tradewind dash / chassis heater blowe motor has worn bearing. The noise from the bearing rattle is loud and obnoxious.
This MH is diesel pusher. Is it possible to remove the plastic panel below the vents on the centre and passenger section of dash to access the blower fan?
I've had a look from driver foot control perspective - heater controls, stereo wiring and 'peninsula' all obstructions.
Thanks, SeaCan

May be in generator compartment. A motor rewind shop should only cost about $25 to fix your motor and replace brushes if you take it to them.

dash removal

The lower dash panels can be removed. It is a combination of screws and some Velcro. Very tedious work. The dash is screwed to the floor behind the panel. If you get the top loose first you have to reach inside to remove those screws.

You will have to remove the top vents to get to the screws on the top. The screws are to the left and right of the vents. Just need patience.

Trying to go where no man has gone before - good luck
