My 2012 SE Sport recently had a check engine light and an over temp warning. I plugged in my bluedriver ODB reader and found a P0480 code (Fan 1 Control Circuit). This coupled with the crazy behavior of the fan previously (coming on when opening car doors) led me to purchase a complete new fan assembly. Now looking at all resources online, I think the unit needs to come out from the bottom (unless I want to take the whole front end apart and remove it with the rad).

Has anyone replaced the fan assembly w/o taking out the rad?

Did you take it out from underneath?

What's the deal with the foam on top of the assembly? I bought new but not entirely sure it is for anything except to keep it from rattling.

Do I need to remove any A/C lines to pull it out from underneath?

Thanks in advance!
