How do I replace blower resistor and where is it on vehicle

My car has 85000 miles.

Remove the sound insulation panel located under the right side of the dash, by passenger’s footing area. Disconnect connector to blower resistor next to blower motor and remove the two screws. From there you’ll be able to remove resistor from the housing. If you run into any issues or would like some help with this job, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to you and ensure a good replacement of your blower resistor.
