You have to take the glove box off and it is right behind it, need a #20 Torx to take it replace it. The glove box is the hardest part of the job, I just replaced mine on an 05 Grand Cherokee but it didn't fix it for me, was well worth the $8.60 to try though.

Here is how to change the resistor- but also pay attention-
Did you also change the connector at the same time?
If you are changing the resistor due to overheating and melting of plastic, then you need to do the connector also, or else it will repeat fail in a very short time.
Here is a step-by-step check you can do to fix it. If you are onlygetting high speed (setting 5), then most likely you have a resistorproblem, or the wiring connector to the resistor is bad. The groundwire prong being bad is a possible cause.
Check this for step-by-step checks:

Yes it is the blower Motors Resistor board. It is up behind the blower motor, just under the glove box. You have to remove the black KICK panel with its two "Push Pins" that will break too. There are 3 screws holding that resistor board in, the back two are a bear to get to. Good luck.
