    Heater Resistor Location

    I'm new to the forum. My blower won't work on number 4. I know that other people have asked about this for the part number. I have the replacement part and removed my glove box but can't see where it located. Could anyone help me with this? (Images would be appreciated)

    Thanks

    Did you mean won't work on number 4, or won't work except when on number 4?
    Heater resistor tends to be at the top of the air housing in between cabin fan case and pollen filter case.

    It is on the slanted surface to the right of the blower.Take the blower motor out and reach through and push the resistor up twisting it to the left and remove. Take care as these can be very hot if run recently.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Sorry about not putting my first post in the introductions bit. I had been told it was in so many different areas but had no luck finding it. Checked on google and a link I clicked on wouldn't load.

    Part number on the box is 6Q0959263 (also has R007 in red)
