There are four or five screws you have to fold the windshield down to get. Then there are usually two or three from the front going into the dash. You'll probably have to take the dash off too to get the defroster duct out.

Where is the blower resister on the 2011 sorento? I found the blower behind the glove box but don't know which one is the resister?

If you are referring to the "heater" blower motor resister?
It is under the top section of the dashboard where the shelf detent pad is. First remove the screws on top of the pad area, next start lifting up the right side of the dashboard section towards the center and over towards the left over the instrument cluster and lift out the complete top of the dash. Next remove the defroster duct by removing the screws. Unclip from the lower section and the duct will lift out. The resister is located there under the dash area and will unbolt allowing removal. "Good Luck."

My blower speeds stoped working only have full blast or nothing.

Sounds like your blower motor resistor is bad. The resistor allows different speeds of the fan other that full 12 volts (which is the high speed). The resistor is located on the passenger side on the heating housing assembly behind the glove box (kind of). It somewhat difficult to get to.

Here is a youtube video of someone working on one. I don't know what model car you have, so take the video as a "generic" repair and it may be a little different on your car.

'94 Camry windshied defroster gets no air flow. When switch is moved,it doesn't change airflow-always comes out ot the ducts facing the passenger area(top ducts)only.

The problem concerning the no air flow out the defrost duct on my mom's 94 Toyota Camry is that the rod link from the electric actuator to the vent / defrost flap became disconnected way up under the center left side under the dash. I had to remove the lower air duct from under the steering column for access to use a 1 inch hole saw to make an access hole on the upper side of the case tube opening to see where the rod came off the lever. I went to the local Toyota dealer to try to buy a retainer clip but the part guy told me that it was only sold as a complete housing piece which was very expensive and involved removing a big portion of the dash pad assembly to replace the housing.
At this point , I plan on reconnecting the rod to the lever by simply installing a special washer style retainer on to the end of the rod to keep it connected. You might find a retainer like this one in a carberator repair kit.

Vacuum diagram for 1980 cj7 jeep 2.5 motor

You can use any vacuum port on the manifold for that. If you want to mess with it a bit, if you have an open port on the carb that is above the throttle plate, you can use that and see if performance is better. Some engines like it and some don't, but it's not like you have to take the engine apart to try it!!

I hear a high pitched scraping sound when I press down on my brakes to come to a stop. I need to know if that means the brakes need to be replaced and if so how do I do that? I've done a brake pad...

No it won't, but it should be easier. The 70's CJ7 was a hub and rotor assembly. The Honda is just a disc rotor. Remove the wheel, caliper and bracket and then the rotor should just come off. Reverse the way you took it apart and fit in the new pads after pressing the caliper piston back in.
