I've done the job, its pretty straight forward, but its also a long job with many things to be removed, it is NOT for the faint of heart or someone without some experience with big mechanical jobs.
Keep in mind a couple of things.
*Take pictures with a camera phone as you take it apart as a reference.
*Especially wire routing, you need photos to refer to on those.
*Have a roll of masking tape and a lot of plastic sandwich bags, as you remove each component, put the fasteners in a plastic sandwich bag and tape it to the component. (if you throw all the fasteners into a bucket, you'll waste a lot of time figuring it out and likely won't get it right)
*Put a big piece of masking tape over the steering wheel before removing it, it would be smart to have the steering centered before removing it. The clockspring in the steering column needs to at the right position, if you don't do something to keep the steering wheel in position while it is out of the vehicle, it could turn a full turn and you could be off and after install you'll break the clockspring and the EPS/BAS/Roll Mitigation won't work with warning lights, because you'll have the steering wheel (it has a sensor in it) off.
*Do NOT power on the vehicle, turn the key with the steering column out. I did and blew fuses that took a while to figure out why had stuff NOT working when I put it all back together.
Now is the time to check out all your HVAC doors and actuators, if any need replaced or repaired, you need to do it while the HVAC box is out of the car. There are several that can only be replaced/repaired by removing the HVAC box.
