Default Removing wiring harness 02 WRX

Please help if you can.

I need to pull the rest of the wiring harness from behind the dash. I have the harness almost completely free. Its held up by the HVAC blower box that sits behind the dash right in the middle. The wiring harness goes from the left to the right side of the car through a small gap that is on top/behind this box. In order to get the harness out, do I need to remove the HVAC Blower box? If so, it is being held up by the refrigeration lines and the coolant lines, which i haven't disconnected yet. If I disconnect those lines from within the engine compartment, will the HVAC box come out and allow me to remove the harness? Or should I just leave the box in there and try to squeeze the harness out somehow. It looks like the harness goes through a plastic cable guide and squeezing the harness out isn't an option.

Thanks!

Unhook all lines and the box will come out.

If you actually manage to get the harness out without removing the HVAC system you will never get another harness back in with it still in place.

If you have not removed the steering wheel it makes life far easier as well.

Thanks man.
I ended up unhooking both AC and heater core lines and it came out.
With that out of there, I was able to pull the last gromet that passes to/from engine compartment into the engine compartment. The last thing holding me back is a bundle of wires going to the rear via the passenger side rocker.

Oh, my wagon is trash BTW. Not going back together ever again. RIP wagon.
