I know you have to remove the dash to get to it. I'm looking for an answer on how to remove the dash because I have the same problem. The dash does not have to be removed, at least on my 2001 Sentra. You do have to remove the glove box (two latches inside of the box have to be pulled inward to release the glove box) then there is a cover that has to be removed (two Phillips head screws). These will be exposed when the glove box is removed. Pull the cover down slightly, reach in above the cover to release two white clips. Now comes the hard part. Laying on your back, looking up under the dash, next to the firewall and close to center of the car is a four wire cable that attaches to the resistor block. The block is held in place with two more Phillips head screws. One screw is visible, one is behind the connector. (Trust me, it's there.) The resistor block assembly will pull down out of its slot. Unclip the resistor block, take it to the Nissan dealer and say "Give me one of these." Mine cost $25. Attach the new block to the connector, slide it back in place and replace the two mounting screws. Slide the cover into the two retaining clips then replace the two screws. Put the glove box back into place the push the retaining latches into place. It takes only about two minutes to remove the block and the same to replace it. The new resistor block may look different but the important thing is the connector not the shape or color of the block. You can continue to operate the fan on high while the resistor block is out of its connector. It only controls fan speeds 1, 2, and 3.

2002 Nissan Sentra blower motor resistor?

The 2002 Nissan Sentra blower motor resistor is located near the blower motor itself, wich can be found under the dashboard, on the passenger side of the car.To access it, you have to remove the glove compartment and the isolation panel that covers the bottom of the blower. Do the following steps:# first, locate and open the glove compartment on the passenger side; # remove the four upper screws and slide the doorlock bracket out; # pull out the two pins at the inner bottom corners of the compartment; # take out the glove compartment assembly; # remove the two screws retaining the isolation panel and slide the later out. Looking under the dashboard, you can now see the blower motor and, on its left side, near the firewall, the resistor block brown connector.To take out the blower motor resistor:# remove the white plastic bracket that faces it; # unplug the brown connector; # remove the two screws on the resistor's socket; # pull the resistor block out. The resistor block is actually a PCB ("Printed Circuit Board"). The traces printed on this board have different electrical resistance, and are used by the control assembly to vary the speed of the blower fan.

How do you locate the blower resistor on a Nissan sunny 1996?

If it looks the same as the European Sunny the resistor is located on the (right hand drive) passanger side. Under the dashboard (or under the glove box) the blower is located. The resistor is located in the blower housing (so the heat is blown away). The resistor is connected by a 4 pin long connector. Pull this one out and unscrew the 2 screws that are located near the 4pin. Then you can get the whole (creditcard) resistor out. Replacing the resistor in Holland costs about 60 euros, but in the us the come around $15.
