First removed the front of the dryer by removing two screws and tipping the front off. Took off the the front that holds the dryer drum by removing four bolts/screws. One screw to take of circuit protector plate, then about 8 little screws to remove the front of the blower house. Used a screwdriver and pliers to twist off the retaining ring and then swapped out the new blower fan for the old, broken one. Reverse to put it all back together. Trickiest was getting the retaining ring back on without the specialized tool they make for the job, but got it on with the pliers and screwdriver.
$25 bucks in parts and a half and hour sure beat $60 for them to tell me what is wrong (I already know) and then the mark up on parts and another $60 for the repair. Likely saved >$125.
