It's pretty dirty, so I'll be replacing it tomorrow if I can find one. I blew it out with some compressed air but it's still got a lot of crap in there.

So, is there an easier way to get it back in? I was able to disconnect the fuse block from the firewall, but the wires were still connected and I couldn't push it out of way enough.
Unclip all wires, and remove fusebox. There are only positive lever lock clips back there so nothing will be that terrible to remove.
I bought a mazda and all I got was some crappy motor mounts and wheelspin.
