Just did this on my truck. Once I figured out the A/C box had to come apart it wasn't that big a deal. I will say that once all the bolts are out, take your time about figuring out just how that cover half will come out. Only works one way and once you figure it out, like you said, easy cheesy.
It's too damn hard to try to describe it here. Just have to play with it until it more or less falls out on it's own.
