    I believe you have to put the duct in first. It is held at the top by twisting the tabs of the steel dash face, then the heater box goes in.

    If I remember correctly that duct is the first piece you install after the firewall insulation pad.

    Yes, Duane is correct as usual. Everything comes out to replace that duct.
