AC is blowing cold, but blower intermittently works. Does this mean it is the Blower Motor Resistor?

Hi Dan
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

This most likely means the blower motor itself is failing, the blower motor resistor wouldn't be a intermittent problem. Next time it stops working unplug the blower motor and see if it has good power/ground with switch in high position, if so replace the blower motor. Here are replacement instructions, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

How do I get the blower motor out? There is an additional panel under the glove box that looks like is covering it but don't know how/where to remove screws?
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

The manual doesn't show any specific screws for lower panel so it should just pull out. I'd recommend looking toward bottom of pane to make sure there are no screws that need to be removed, if not just pull on panel and it should snap out of place. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
