Interesting. That's something I was going to fish through when I get everything out and have a little more room. I do know that I have a random male flat spaded solid red wire that dangles down, but it's over by the clutch/brake/fuse box coming out of what looks like a sleeve of harness wires. I can't recall if it was dangling there before the AC shat the bed. Also not sure where those sleeve of wires trace to. Question: does the fuse box have female connections for flat spaded wires? If so, could this random wire be a wire coming from fuse 12 (AC)? Then again, fuse 12 also operates the heater, which works fine. Ugh. I suppose it could also be the red wire that plugs into the blower motor/blue wire, but I need to get it out to see what I have.
Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully someone else will chime in to give me pointers on how to release the motor, or at the very least how to drop the whole system without unplugging hoses, etc. I took out the ash tray assembly and unscrewed the front fascia, but the whole AC unit itself still seems to be snug and not budging.
