need to replace a front - moz-screenshot.pngHere's an excerpt from the 2002 Acura MDX 4WD 6cyl Repair guide for replacing what the reference manual calls the "control assembly" - its located under the console rear trim and may (or may not)
contain the blower resistor - my manual doesn't say - but this is the closest thing I could find for you. Every other blower resistor I've had to find was located close to the heater controls - and this
car seems to be no exception -- its heater controls are located in the console between the seats, rather than in the dash (as in Acura 2003-06 MDX models).

You may want to call your friendly Acura dealership ad speak to the parts department, to make sure where the blower resistor is located - or a visit to a dealership parts counter often (or
Advance Auto Parts is helpful too) ofen clarifies questions I have from Haynes manuals (the cheapest car repair guides).

All this assumes that you've correctly diagnosed your blower control problem -- as in "replace the blower resistor when the blower works only on the MAX/Highest setting."

Replace your blower motor resistor
Resistor located under dash on passenger side in screwed into blower housing. May be able to be repaired. Requires soldering a small piece of "unmelted solder" across where the old fusible link was. look carefully at resistor. Or else just replace. Buy new. Junkyard resistor likely to be as bad as yours.
