First, if you are inexperienced with working on a furnace you should hire a certified HVAC contractor to do the work as it could be dangerous and you may make matters worse.

To start you need to turn the thermostat off or all the way down and turn of power to the furnace.

Beyond this first step it is better to see how it is done than read a description. For a Bryant furnace I found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZYlTRADv-c and here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDnkdKsZhc0.

You can find two other good general videos here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ecd5CzJjss4 and here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I86joWL66aE.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
