This vehicle does not have a blower motor resistor. The job of fan speed is controled by the Blower Motor Control Processor. It's like a blower resistor, just smarter. The controler is located under the passenger's side dash, mounted to the HVAC housing. It's held in place by a couple of 7mm bolts.

It does have a blower motor resistor GM part #br263. I have changed it but can't get the old one out, it is not screws, bolts. It appears to be some type of rivet but the center pin does not push in or out and the outer edge resembles a very hard o-ring. I am guessing it must be drilled out bt that doesn't make much sense.
