On the 67 Camaro with A/C & the 350 engine out of car,, can the inner skirt (detailed) be removed easily by bringing it inwards & lifting it out?? I need to change the Blower Motor while the engine is out!! Or is there an easier way ??

We tried on a friends 69; it wouldn't clear the subframe and fender to come out. We found it easier to remove the fender first.

I know this may make some people here cringe, but I did mine by removing all the fender bolts near the door area. Then I gently lifted the whole fender while still attached at the front. I blocked it up with a 2x4 sitting on the cowl area. If I had felt much more resistance than I did I would have stopped. I must also say my car has not been painted or had body work done yet. There was no damage done using this method. It was no more than a 1 1/2 hour job.

Remove the whole fender as a unit. You should probably put masking tape on the edges of the fender, door, etc to prevent dings. It is much easier to do it this way although it seems like overkill to replace a blower motor. Just keep track of the shims and you should have no problems.
