Default 1999 Caravan Blower Motor Resistor

I am having trouble locating the fan blower motor resistor. I do know that it is behind the glove box but when I dropped the glove box down there is nothing there that looks like the resistor. I believe that it is above the opening of the glove box and I don't know how to make it more visible. Does anyone know if or how I have to remove more of the dash to get at it?
Henry.

Thanks for getting back to me. I know the spot that you say that it's in but all you see is the back end of it with the wires coming out of it. There is no way of removing it from there. The mounting screws must be on the other side of it and it is up pretty high toward the top of the dash so there must be more to take apart other than the glove box. Can you tell me how I can find the pictures of it? Thanks.

That is the part no screws, unplug harness, insert flat head screw driver under lip from the drivers side toward the passenger side, pry out. When you buy a new one it might not look the same, most of them have done away with the coils, and now have wire wrapped an a plastic coating

LIL tip Henry Dont touch it with the key on and the blower control on, those lil resistor coils get mighty hot!
thats why its in the location it is as cool air thru the cowl blows over those coils

Hey, many thanks to hemi4spd and Jumpdrive2. I just successfully changed the blower motor resistor in my son's Caravan. It was a bit of a chore to get the new one back in the slot it came out of but we got it done. This is the first time I've used this forum and it sure is helpful. I'll definitely recommend it! Thanks again guys. Hopefully I can help somebody out myself someday.
