:The resistor is quite difficult to remove since it is butt-up againt the firewall. A 5.5mm univeral socket is needed. You may also need to cut away some of the firewall insulation. Laying on your back in an odd position isalso required.- TechJK


The blower motor resistor is mounted next to or behind the blower motor. The blower motor is located under the passenger�s side of the dash panel, attached to the bottom of the intake unit.

Q: Is the resistor a rectangular metal plate held in the duct by two screws, just to the left of the blower, or is this something else?

Yes it is that metal plate, Easy way to check it is by using multi-meter and making sure everything is continuous.. or all the connections are continuous.

Addtional : On my 1995 Nissan Maxima the blower resistor is underneath the glovebox. (You do NOT have to remove the glovebox!) The are 2 screws holding it on. It's not a metal plate on mine, but a approx 3 inch long and 3/4 inch wide plastic connector with 4 wide connectors inside. It is held on by 2 screws, each going through a double hole plastic screw plate. When you remove it, you'll see it is a metal plate that extends about 1.5 inches inside the blower box. The part costs between $29 and $39 dollars at autopart stores and should only take about 2 minutes to replace. All you do is remove the 2 screws, unplug the bad resistor, plug in the new one and refasten the 2 screws.

Yes, and it will be located near the blower motor under the dash, behind the glove box, or behind the kick panel.

Remove the wiring harness from the back of your 1999 Chevy Monte Carlo blower motor. Remove the blower motor retaining bolts. Remove the fan on the front of the blower motor. Reverse the process to install the new blower motor.

it is located under the passenger side dashbord underneath a removeable plastic cover. look for a part snug against the firewall connected by 2 7mm bolts.
