just spray the crap out of it even if it's in the general area. you may have to repeat this a good number of times and be patient. it could take days or maybe weeks for the oil to penetrate in.

if you do decide to remove it. As noted above -removing the motor makes the job a bit easier along with the blower motor,shrouds clips flaps etc. You can also pry on the pivot to disconnect it to make removal easier as this is a common method used.
