DIY VIDEO: Final Stage Resistor
Here you go guys.

Tools needed:

- Philips screwdriver
- Ratchet
- 2" extension
- 6-8" extension
- Torx 20 bit
- 1/4" adapter socket
- 3/8" to 1/4" adapter
- A pillow to lay on (if you want)

Part number 64116920365

One tip that someone told me that you can skip is taking out the glovebox tray, just go straight to removing the 5 screws for the entire housing.

Good job Jake!

Impressive vid capture AND DIY-ing (one handed.)

Another excellent video, Jake!

(sorry about the phone)

I think my blower is beginning to develop a slight hum or pulsation as well. This video will come in handy when I need to replace the FSR in the future.

Thanks guys! It sucked to push the air duct to the side, do the job and hold the camera :rofl:

Rofl, thank you

Waiting for part in mail. Hope I bought right part. Weird sounds coming out of vents, no cold air, compressor kicks on, sufficient coolant in system.after searching posts, figured this must be the problem,what do you think Jake? Sucks you broke your phone...

Solidjake 06-21-2011 09:17 PM

If your freon level is okay it might be a fuse or the control box on the fan that is preventing the compressor from turning on. The only symptoms I've read are no air flow at all or pulsing air flow.

this is a great video and anyone can do this ..did mine a few months back

josephmech 06-21-2011 10:17 PM

Nice DIY vid did mine a year ago

dmax 06-22-2011 08:14 PM

Didn't see the whole thing, but I browsed. Didn't see one, not one female...but I know if you hadn't of broken BB, you'd have Marissa Tomei on the screen for me!

I'm sure I'll need it someday...who knows when.

I'll have to do something one day...have no idea on what, though...and I'll find some female to help! AC tensioner pulley or wiper blades?

my climate control started mking a weird noise a few days ago, sounded as though it was clogged up or blocked, then it just stopped working, it has come on randomly once but the went off again and now isnt working again, do i need to replace the FSR?
