Start with: I have found the blower motor under the dash above the floor of of the passenger side. This is all I know. What do I need to replace the blower resistor? Thanks.

I don't know what is meant exactly by "instrument panel compartment". From the diagram you sent, I would estimate the resistor is located on top of the black plastic box above the ash tray/lighter compartment in the truck. Is it necessary to remove the bezel, radio, control head, and instruments composing the dash board to get to it? I have a Haynes manual. The procedure for removal of the "instrument cluster" as they call it is described on pg. 12-8 and it warns about disabling the airbag system and seperating the "instrument cluster" and "housing". Separating them may cause damage to the computer chips due to static electricity.

I need more detail on removal of the "instrument panel compartment" Thanks

Sorry it is the Glove compartment

OK. Thanks,

Do you have a diagram for removing the glove compartment? It is not in my Haynes manual. Thanks


I only can find this picture of the glove box but there should be a stop bracket on the glove box when you open it that can be either pushed out of the way or removed to fully open the glove box. Then you might be able to gain access to the resistor.
