hello , I have the same problem , I could release the fan, but not can remove it .. thanks

probably easier to just trade it in for a new car!

mine in my 2014 Focus SE sounds like a blender when it's running...really noisy!!

Having to rip half the dashboard out is a real pain in the ass...Thank you Ford....for another design nightmare!!!
