Duct removal Volvo 1990 240dl

I am trying to replace the wiper motor on my 1990 Volvo 240dl. To get
to the wiper motor arm, I need to remove some of the duct work. I am
having difficulty detaching the piece of duct work directly
below/behind the glove compartment from the central duct work assembly
to the left. If anyone has any suggestions regarding how to separate
these assemblies without breaking the plastic, please let me know.
Thanks. Jeff.

First of all you really don't have to remove it. Remove the glove box
instead and you can easily see what you need to see to remove the clip
and spring washer from the drive arm and the 6mm screw from the motor
drive shaft.

If you must remove it there is a staple or two through the duct work at
the blower housing, there are two rubber nubbies susupending the
straight run from a bracket attached to the botttom of the dashboard
cushion. The elbow at the right side face level vent is a snap/force fit
at the vent housing and is a snap/force fit to the straight run. There
may or may not be staples at that connection. In any case the staples
are just to hold the assembly together during manufacture and aren'y
necessary to maintain integrity after reinstallation.

Thanks!

My wife found the staples and pulled them out. She thought some %$#&^
put them in there to stop a rattle or something! I had no trouble
taking out the ductwork once the staples were gone.

BTW: I had removed the glove compartment, but the ducts (as well as an
audio amplifier) were directly in front of the wiper arm, clip, and
motor shaft, making it necessary to remove them.

Thanks again,
Jeff.
