.... the blower motor needed replacing, I removed the four screws
(one difficult to say the least!), and the motor will not fit coming
out. I think I need to remove the fan from the motor while in the
housing, then the motor will slide out on an angle. Does the fan
screw on to the motor, or just slide off (with some pressure).
I can't see any screws holding it on, but then I can't get it out
all the way.
A typical "squirrel-cage" fan has a setscrew in the fan hub to
secure the fan to the motor shaft. The setscrew is tightened
with an Allen wrench, or rarely with a flat blade screwdriver.
It's hard to see it without a mirror and it's awkward to engage it
to turn it when you find it.
