Can anyone who has done this before verify/correct these numbers?
    I can't give you the number off the top of my head, but I do know that the Workshop Manual (which I don't have with me right now) says "remove ___ screws." So I kept fondling around in the dark finding more until I found that number, and it came out. So I'd say the Workshop Manual is correct.

    Good luck, and post if you get stuck - I'll try to help you as best as I can from my fuzzy memory.

    I will definitely take you up on that should the need arise.

    I am surprised, however, that the manual would speak on removing just the evaporator side of the heater box assembly. From what I've gleaned off the net, that sort of removal is a bit less traditional. I'll have to give it a look when I get home and see.

    It doesn't, but I think removing all of the screws would make sure that you have the wiggle room to separate the top and bottom pieces on the right side. That's just my opinion.
