    Here are the removal and replacement instructions, looks like you have to remove the dashboard, so it is a difficult job that I wouldn't recommend for a novice.

    1. Properly disable the SIR air bag system, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the instrument panel upper trim pad as follows:
    1. Remove the lower right trim panel.
    2. Remove the fuse box cover and side trim panel.
    3. Remove the glove compartment.
    4. Remove the right outer air outlet and center air outlet.
    5. Remove the console trim plate and accessory trim plate.
    6. Remove the windshield defroster grill.
    7. Remove the left outer air outlet.
    8. Unfasten the dash pad retaining bolts/screws, then remove the pad by pulling rearward and upward.
    3. Drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Disconnect the in-vehicle temperature sensor aspirator hose.
    4. Unplug the in-vehicle temperature sensor electrical connector.
    5. Remove the floor heat deflector attaching screws, right side knee bolster brace and the floor heat deflector.

    8. Remove the harnesses from the wiring harness retainer, then remove the wiring harness retainer.
    9. Remove the carrier nuts from the right side pillar, the multi-use relay bracket and the passenger knee bolster brace attachments.
    10. Unclip the side window defroster duct clip, then remove the duct hose from the knee bolster brace.
    11. Pull the carrier back, then remove the passenger knee bolster brace. Detach the electrical connectors from the radio receiver.
    12. Remove the multi-use relay bracket and unplug the cruise control module electrical connector.

    14. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the actuator, then remove the vacuum line retainer tape from the heater. Remove the harness from the retainer clip, mounted on the bottom of the rear heater case.
    15. Disconnect the side window defroster duct (center) extension, in the heater case. Remove the rear heater case attaching screws, then the rear heater case half.

    23. Install the upper instrument pad assembly in the reverse order of removal. Connect the negative battery cable and enable the SIR system. Properly fill the engine cooling system and check for leaks.
