Default Blower Resistor Pack

It seems that my Blower Resistor Pack may have died (88 900T conv). My fan only works on high (I can't access settings 1 - 3). My problem is finding the resistor pack.

Some of the posts on this issue are suggesting that it sits a top the fan, my Bentley manual says under the left hand speaker. What I seem to have is a cable coming from the fan (which is under the right speaker) to a device that is sort of under the left hand speaker - is this the illusive pack?

It is damn hard to get to, can it be replaced without removing the dash? Does the fact that this is an Australian car (RH drive) mean that the fan and pack are located differently?

Any help much appreciated.

If it has coils of bare wire, it's the resistor pack.

At the risk of stating the bleedin' obvious, check that your fan switch connector is securely clipped on.

Perhaps, if you do need to replace the resistor pack, you could get at it by removing the under-dash bolster? Anybody out there know if this would work?

Did some more poking around today - it is definately not the switch (I unplugged the switch and tried to activate the fan using a bent paperclip across the terminals).

Funny thing is when I ordered a replacement blower resistor pack from my saab dealer he seemed surprised. He reckons he has never heard of one blowing before, is this a common problem?
