    The heater motor has packed up so i had a look on ebay and the ones listed say for aircon only which i presume means they dont fit the same as a standard heating system but will they be ok for my car as it has climate control and will a facelift dash one fit my 98 car ?? as i can get one down the road for next to nothing .

    Just remove the side panel and it's 5 x 10mm bolts. Remember to unplug the light before pulling completely away, and when refitting the back piece slides into a slot, so ensure this is engaged before pushing all the way up & in.

    Just unplug it and remove the 3 screws and the whole thing pulls out. You will have to remove the big bracket in front of it to give you enough room to manoevour it out though.

    Do you need to disable airbag when removing glovebox?
    If so how do you do that.
    I never had my glovebox of yet and would like to do it just so just to learn but worried about airbag going off .

    No you don't. If you have the passenger airbag disable key inside the glovebox then as long as you don't turn the ignition on with the connector disconnected then it won't trigger the airbag warning light.
