Q: Take Off Squirrel Cage

asked by on

I’ve been working on replacing my motor, and I’m about half way finished. So far I have disconnected the wiring for the blower motor that is located up against the firewall on the passenger side. I unbolted the front face from the fan housing 57mm bolts. But here’s where I get stumped. I removed the squirrel cage from the motor, and there is sort of a clip holding the cage onto the motor. So how do I get it off? I can’t figure that part out. Once I get it off I will replace the old motor with a new one, and put everything back together again. Do you have any ideas? Thanks.
