It's a piece of cake. 3 or 4 screws from the outside, unplug it and install a new one. You also have to swap the blower cage wheel to the new one. It's held on by a couple of screws. Ran a bead of silicone around the new one motor to seal it. The complete swap took less than 30 minutes.
A bought a new lifetime warranty one from Advance Auto for ~$40. Auto Zone had one a little cheaper, but it didn't come with a plug. Bare wires. You had to cut and splice the plug from the old motor. The one I bought from Advance came with a plug already installed.
