    Blower motor resistor removal?

    It appears the resistor is secured from the inside of the firewall, I removed the glove box but still can't get to it. Any help will be appreciated. BTW it's a 96 caravan 3.0.

    OOOps, wrong Thread, Wrong Generation. Try Post #18 of this thread instead: http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/sho...esistor&page=2
    3rd Generation: under the hood on the fire wall near motor location. The following Thread, and Posts #9 & #11 in particular, tells where the resistor is located on a 3rd Generation and how to replace it. http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/showthread.php?t=9851
    May as well go to this one first. It has the pictures: http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbul...d.php?t=340871

    Thanks for the replies, I finally figured it out. Took a screw driver and pried it right out. I thought it was screwed in but it is held in by clips.

    Funny, mine had a little burnt spot on the blue plastic piece on connector also. Had lots of rust too, when the new one comes in tomorrow I might try too seal it up alittle better.

    Hi just changed my resistor on a 1999 chrysler t&c --just yank it out -any way you can -held in with clips-use a screw driver to pry it out from the shock tower side-do not worry about damaging the clips-you have new ones on the new resistor- do not pull on the wiring -but do pull the wiring and the resistor out together-then separate the plug and the wire harness- the wire harness may need to be replaced-but do inspect it for wear-or rust

    To answer the question in its original form, there actually is a way to access the spring tabs from behind the firewall. The resistor sits inside HVAC housing, and can be reached through the recirculation door opening after removing the blower motor cover (but not the motor, 4 screws). The door has to be in the "fresh air" position. This may even be less painful then the usual way.

    Mine is a 1999 model so it's the right forum.
    The cover is not behind the glove box but on the bottom of the blower housing, facing down. The glove box can stay in place (closed) for this procedure. It's the cover you would have to remove for replacing the blower motor, but taking it off also allows to reach through the air intake towards the firewall side of the housing.
    There's lots of room to work, just use a good light.
