279RBS Vibe Furnace Removal

Apparently I have to cut a hole in the bottom of the closet to remove the furnace for repair.
I hope Im wrong and there’s an easier way or some sort of trick to get this thing out for repair. It looks like they built around it with no access panel.

Thread has been moved from the Appliances and Electronics forum to the Vibe | V-Cross forum since the situation is unique to a Vibe unit.

Pictures would be helpful.

You do realize, don't you, that you don't remove the plenum (sheet metal enclosure with ducts connected to it)? You take off the plenum front cover, disconnect gas and electric lines, remove one anchor bolt, and slide out the guts.
