Question blower motor resistor - how to replace?

I have a 2000 Civic (plane jane, no power windows) and the blower motor resistor needs replacement. Fan works on high only.

I have the replacement part, but cannot figure out how to remove the old one.

I removed the screws, but the part is inside of the housing and I cannot just pull it out. If I disconnect the plug, the old unit will fall into the housing.

help.

I think you unplug it, tilt it and fish it out the hole. If that doesn't work or you end up dropping it, just take the motor off which will open the bottom of the compartment.

Thanks for the response. There is no way the part is going to be able to fish out of the hole.

How do I take the motor off?

OK, I figured it out and got the resistor change. The fan switch works fine now.

I'll post in case somebody else has this issue.

To replace the blower motor resistor, I had to remove the blower motor first. This was easier than I thought, 3 screws on the bottom and the unit just pulled out. With the blower motor out, I removed and replaced the resistor. Put the blower motor back in place and was done.
