Anyway if you look in the manual i think it is the green plug in, not 100% shure because it could be the brown one.... I dont have my manual right here beside me but i think it is the green plug in. If you dont have a manual just do the green one first, if that doesnt do it do the brown , and then white. They are the same relay's

Brown (second from abouve) is the ignition
The blower relay is the third from abouve with a neutral color plug.

Remove the panel under the dash and steering column, the relays you are looking for are behind the 'tray' box.
The blower relay is the third from abouve with the colourless plug.

There was one tiny orange relay, the blower relay was actually behind a bracket when looking up towards the dash when laying down with the back of your head on the brake pedal. The clear connector was the key. Removing the relay took a bit of work, I had to unclip the connector from the bracket using a pair of needle nose pliers. The relay is cylindrical, silver, one inch long, and the diameter of a quarter. It has the following information on it:
10K23, 056700-5260, 12V, 22A, Made in Japan.
There is a simiar relay just above it which is the fuel pump, with the green connector. I actually disconnected this one first and the car would not start, go figure.
I also overhauled the fan motor, very dirty, full of carbon from the brushes, oiled it, and we are good to go.
Anyway, will go to Subaru and pull out the wallet.
Thanks for the info. Saved $$$$$

Of course, this may not always be the case but it worked for me, try it and see.

The part number 056700-5260 stated in earlier posts matches mine, and this seems to describe a 12 volt, 22 amp relay. www.importautoparts.com has them listed as the fuel pump relay, and they're only $12.00.

I have tested my blower motor (works), Fuses (good). but no power to the fan selector switch or the blower. I took the panel off the bottom of the dash board as described below by toleranc02 and I can see there is a bracket behind some wiring bundles with a metal can at the top, a brown rectangular "relay" in the middle and nothing on the bottom. The blower motor relay should be the bottom one. Where else should I look for this?
