I am also having a bit of trouble with my HVAC system. Speeds 3 and 4 work great, but 1 and 2 don't work at all. From what I've read, the blower motor resistor could be the problem. So, I went to the Jeep dealership yesterday and bought one for $16.40--not bad.
I figured it was going to be really hard to get to, but surprisingly, it only took about 10 minutes. I figured it was all downhill from there, but apparently I was wrong. I spent about 2 hours trying to "unplug" the old one.
I snapped some pictures hoping that someone can help me out. I'm just not sure how this thing comes apart, and I'm scared to be overly forceful with it.
In the second picture, it looks like that little tab (facing the camera) may push up into the indented area at the top of the red clip. I tried to do that with a small screwdriver, but I didn't have any luck. I also tried to push down on the black clip part (where the grooves are) to see if that would release it, but it didn't.
After 2 hours of sore fingers and much profanity, I'm not sure what to push/pull as I try to unplug this thing.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
