Default Where O' where is my blower motor resistor ?

I just bought a 2002 Ranger XLT, it's a nice truck but needs a few things fixed. This post is about the fan switch, the first 3 positions blow almost no air at all, but the high setting works fine. From what I've read it's probably the blower motor resistor, question is, where is it? I thought it would be in the engine compartment near the blower motor, but I don't see it, please advise........

Can't be sure that photo will show-up...

Resistor is on the face of the ductwork kinda near the center of the truck (to the left of the blend door, user your left hand whil reaching behind the dash from the passenger's footwell area) -- one connector that appears to "connect" to the air duct itself.

Does anyone know if schematic will be the same for an '05 XLT? and can I access this from the cab or under the hood?

same for the '05 - from the cab (near centerline - passengers footwell or pull the glovebox and reach in to the left)

i think atleast 95+ is in the engine bay, at 4 o'clock looking at the blower motor.

That picture is a little misleading. It is under the hood near the blower motor. The easiest way to remove it is to remove the air filter box and overflow/ windshield washer tank. 2 little screws hold it in 5/16 or 8mm. On some it is really hard to get the electrical plug unplugged, they rust together.

I found it! It was on the blower motor housing under the hood, I couldn't see it because there was a rubber hose over it. I took the 2 screws out and found that the electrical connector was completely corroded and stuck to resistor pack. I installed a new resistor pack but I had to special order the pigtail through Autozone, once I get that and splice it in it should be good to go !!
