Removing passenger side under dash panel for blower resistor-How?

Trying to change the blower resistor on my 99 sebring convertible.  Lots of help on web about actually changing the part, but think they must refer to later models, as they describe a "foam"-type passenger-side underpanel that apparently comes out fairly easily. My 99 has an extensive, hard, molded-plastic piece that I can't crack.  (Right side loosens a bit, but left side at center console absolutely won't budge.)  I can't see any screws/bolts anywhere on it. Anyone had any experience at this before I seriously break something or hurt myself trying to force it out?   Thanks!

SOURCE: Hi. My blower motor only works on high and I am

The resistor block you are looking for will be close to your blower motor.There will be about 5 or 6 wires going to the block ,each a different color. When you take it out it should be about the size of a credit card and almost as thin.It is possible that Chrysler has found a new place to hide it so my suggestion is go to the dealer and buy the replacement and have them print off a diagram of the exact placement. They can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Sorry to say there is no heavy duty block on the market that I know of and yes,they can go very quickly sometimes.I hope this helps,good luck

How do you remove a blower motor resistor from a 2004 Cadillac deville

No resistor - there is a blower motor control processor attached to the blower motor housing under the dash on the passenger side. You should be able to get at it by removing the kick panel under the dash - just follow the wire harness to the processor connector.

Heater won`t work at 1,2,3 settings, it only works on #4 setting (chrysler,sebring 2003)

sounds like a blower resistor. usually it is on the passenger side under dash near blower motor and hvac box. the resistor add resistance to the circuit to slow the blower motor, if it is inop then you only get high speed.

I have a sebring 2004 and I need to change the blower fan resistor. What is the easiest way to get to the resistor? Some tell me I have to remove the whole front dash.... thanks Ginette

You shouldn't have to remove the dash for this vehicle, move the seat all the way back, remove the covers under the passenger side dash, the blower motor and resistor should be located there.

Where is blower fan resister located ?

The resistor should be located on the passenger-side of the vehicle, accessible under the dash by removing the "soft" covering. Make sure you get the correct part to fit or you may have to modify the opening where the resistor fits for size (newer resistors are designed a little larger, requiring you to expand the opening (all plastic, so not too difficult, but it is a hard to reach area so working in the space is difficult)

Heater AC Problem 99 Escalade

On the passengers side under the dash you will find the blower motor.You might have to remove a panel.By the blower motor there is a blower motor resistor module that gets hot and will melt the connector to the blower motor.Check this area out and if it is melted you need to replace the resistor and the connector.You should be able to get one from the dealership.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2003 Buick Century Low Speed Blower

You may have a bad blower motor resistor. The blower motor is located in the passenger side foot well. You will need to remove the kick panel on the passenger side to get at the motor. 
The blower motor resistor is located on the back of the blower motor housing under the dash on the passenger side. It can be difficult to get at. Remove the cover panel from beneath the dash on the passenger side. Unplug the power 'ribbon' wires leading to the resistor. Unplug the wires that lead from the resistor to the blower motor housing.
There are usually two, one black and one purple that share the same plug. Remove the short hose that leads from the blower motor housing to the ventilation ducts. Remove the blower motor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. Remove the resistor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. 
The resistor is right against the firewall so two of the screws are very difficult to reach. A slender flexible socket extension will make the job easier. Attach the new resistor in place using the same hex screws. Only 1 or 2 of the original three are needed (the part is very light) if you do not feel like fighting with the ones next to the firewall.Reattach the blower motor and reconnect the hose. Plug the power cable wires back into the resistor and the wire from the resistor back into the blower motor.

Good luck and hope this helps.
