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.

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.

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...

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.

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?
