How to remove the inducer motor in my bryant furnace

Ok..so I thought it would be easy to remove my inducer motor in my Bryant Furnace. I started to remove a few screws and I realized that the squirrel cage fan is enclosed in sheet metal. I thought once the screws were removed the whole part would easily pop out. I was wrong. It doesn't look like it was spot welded, just tightly bent to enclose the fan. Below are some pics. Are there any manuals out there to help me? Specials tools to open it up? There's got to be an easy way. Suggestions?

Ummm. Just going by the usual Carrier assembly strategy, I would expect that you'd need to remove the three screws with the rubber washers behind them ---

The two vertical screws at the top, and one in the middle at the bottom. That wont work? Usually there a gasket that requires moderate prying to release the inducer motor assembly.

If not, what's the model number of the furnace?

The screws highlighted red will allow removal.

Those were my second choices. I think you're right though, Houston.

Unless he is replacing the entire inducer assembly (which I recommend) we are both right.
