Found this thread, made the job an easy fix. As I was initially trying to unplug the plug from the FSU, the FSU tab released. This made it a little more difficult to wiggle the plug out from it. I was able to do so within a few minutes. I also had a little difficulty with the new FSU snapping into place. It was just barely short of snapping into place. After a handful of attempts, it finally became snapped in. So far the new FSU has worked. The old one caused the blower to act erratically at times, but worse than that, within seconds of shutting off the engine, the blower would start up or barely attempt to start over and over. This didn't happen every time, but was becoming more frequent. By morning, the battery didn't have enough juice to start the car. Because of this thread, the problem has been solved and I saved a little money by installing it myself. Thanks all.
