Remove the bolts securing the fan motor's speed control to the firewall, using the ¼-inch drive socket. Move the speed control aside to gain access to the blower motor.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor by pulling the connector out of the socket. Remove the bolts around the circumference of the blower motor securing it to the firewall, using the ¼-inch drive socket. Pull the blower motor out of the firewall.
If it has been a long time since the blower motor has been removed you may need a flat head screwdriver to help pry the motor from the firewall.
Hope this helps and good luck!
