I've noticed over the past couple of days that my climate system fan works only when it's set on the number 4 or high position. The first 3 settings, now, do nothing. I assume, from what I've gleaned off the web, that this has something to do with a bad resistor of some type. Where is this resistor located in a '91 Legacy, and any idea of the price? Thanks.

its kinda behind the glove box,you will have to remove the glovebox,you will see a connecter,pull off and there is screws that hold it in.it looks like a cage wiyh windings in it.maybe the plug is loose? never had to replace so dont know about price.im sure somebody will know.

Look under and behind the glove box. You might be able to reach it without removing the glove box.

You should be able to get to the resistor box from under the dash next to the blower motor. You are most likely going to have to go a scrap yard and pul it out of a car. If you can find them, get a few of them. People have tried soldering in resistors with mixed results. I dont know what subaru gtes for one, it may be just worth it to bite the bulit and get a new one, as this is a common failure with age.

Remove the glove box. It's two screws and when you do that, you'll be staring at the connector for the resistor pack.

It's the thing in this pic.

remove the connector, and two screws. Pull it out and swap it for another one.

Contact Toney at John and Phil's Toyota and Subaru in Oregon at subaruparts@johnphils.com. She just sent me a resistor pack for about $43 with shipping. I have yet to put it in. :brow:

The problem that I had with mine was that alot of garbage had gotten into it and kept it from blowing at its full peak, also I had some trouble with the little connnecters on it, had to set them back just right.
