Q: A/C blower quit blowing on 1993 Acura Vigor

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a '93 Acura Legend 4dr that just ticked over 200,000 miles. Today the A/C blower quit in 90+ degree heat. It looks like the blower fuze is a 40 amp located under the hood. The 40 & 50 amp fuses are inside little individual plasic boxes with clear tops. I can't figure out how to get at it to check if it's blown. There's a heater control 7.5 amp fuse under the dash that is not blown. I saw a Q&A post on repairpal.com about R&R of the blower motor. Sounds straightforward enough, but impossible for me right now as I just had my left hip replaced 5 weeks ago. In fact, I need to drive 8 hours from Alabama to SC next week for my post-op doctor's check-up. Does the clear top pop off the fuse? Do I need to remove the screws on each side? What are the damages if the dealer needs to replace the motor?

sounds like the blower motor. remove the fuse and check it with a ohm meter for continuity.
you can save by going to an independent shop. the motor is 149 and 1 hour in labor.

How do I remove the fuse? It's inside a plastic box and I can't figure out how to get at it. Thanks for your advice about the independent shop.
