    Rear Blower Resistor pack location

    Hi. I have a 01 GC. I've successfully changed the front blower resistor pack but need to do the rear blower as it only runs on high. Does anyone know where the resistor pack is located?

    Have to remove the plastic panel, where the blower is, back right hand side. You can hear the blower, when working.

    Thank you very much. Is this fastened similar to the front resistor pack (2 screws, 2 connectors) or is there something special I need to look for?

    Cheers.

    BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR
    DESCRIPTION
    A blower motor resistor is used on this model when
    it is equipped with the manual heater-A/C control
    . Models equipped with the optional Automatic
    Temperature Control (ATC) use a blower power
    module, instead of the blower motor resistor. The
    blower motor resistor is installed in a mounting hole
    on the back of the rear heater-A/C unit housing,
    directly above the expansion valve. The resistor consists
    of a molded plastic mounting plate with an integral
    connector receptacle. Concealed behind the
    mounting plate within the rear heater-A/C unit housing
    are two coiled resistor wires contained within a
    protective stamped steel cage. The resistor mounting
    plate is secured with two screws to the rear heater-
    A/C unit housing and is accessed for service by
    removing the right quarter and D-pillar trim panels.
    The blower motor resistor wires will get hot when
    in use. Do not touch the resistor wires or the protective
    cage if the blower motor has been running. The
    blower motor resistor cannot be adjusted or repaired
    and, if faulty or damaged, it must be replaced.
    OPERATION
    The blower motor resistor is connected to the vehicle
    electrical system through a dedicated take out
    and connector of the rear HVAC wire harness. The
    blower motor resistor has two resistor wires, each of
    which will reduce the current flow through the
    blower motor to change the blower motor speed. The
    blower motor switch in the manual heater-A/C control
    directs the ground path for the blower motor
    through the correct resistor wire to obtain the
    selected speed. With the blower motor switch in the
    lowest speed position, the ground path for the motor
    is applied through both resistor wires. Each higher
    speed selected with the blower motor switch applies
    the blower motor ground path through fewer of the
    resistor wires, increasing the blower motor speed.
    When the blower motor switch is in the highest
    speed position, the blower motor resistor wires are
    bypassed and the blower motor receives a direct path
    to ground through the blower motor switch. The
    blower motor resistor may be diagnosed using conventional
    diagnostic tools and methods.

    I think it is basically the same deal, you will know when you get the part.

    Hate to bump an old thread, but...
    What is the part # for the Rear Blower Motor Resistor?

    just to confirm. That is for the manual 3 zone, right?

    Does anyone have any know how on how to actually get to the resistor pack? I haven't seen any screws or pull-points on the plastic to actually remove the panel so I can actually get to the stupid thing.
