Maybe someone else can chime on on exact location, but you shoul be able to find it just by checking around the area by the motor.

Now I have to ask the really dumb question, where is the blower motor located on a Legacy? Then maybe I can track down those pesky resistors!
It's right above the passenger's feet. Push the passenger seat all the way back to give yourself some room to work, then take off the kick panel underneath the glove box. You should seen the outside of the blower motor, and it has a big wire bundle coming out from it (4 wires in a cable). These 4 wires go to the unit you are looking for, the resistor block. As others have described, carefully take it out, and you'll see the resistors which are actually wire coils (very low resistance). These wire coil resistors sit in the windstream created by the blower motor. As a side note... if your blower motor ever gets bad bearings and slows down, the first thing to go then will be one of those little resistors, because it won't get cooled enough. I got a new resistor block from someone one Ebay. They are available... good luck!
