I recently posted a topic about smoke coming through my vents ( http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/131583.html ) and have determined I should first clean out my A/C Resistor Coil like ( http://www.fiero.nl/forum/A...100421-2-099340.html )

Is there anyone who can give me a step-by-step instruction list on how to do this? I'm technically challenged and just trying to learn about Fieros as much as I can through you all! Much appreciated.

I think you actually mean the blower resistor assembly...as it works with both AC and heater.

Open the front hood and just below the windshield on the firewall, and just to the passenger side from the center, you will see a connector with I believe 3 wires coming out. Pull the connector off. The resistor pack is mounted into the firewall duct with 2, 7mm or 8mm hex screws. Take them out and just pull the pack out. Its maybe a 2"X3" black plastic part. The resistor coils are on the back side of it. Im doing this from memory of 10 years ago, but think Im pretty accurate.

Along with the above I find you can do even a better job cleaning out the area if you remove the fan motor which is located in the center. Unplug and remove the 1/2 dozen or so screws holding the fan in and you can reach in and clean out whatever is there.
Resistor is purple arrow.

In case DR didnt tell you, the resister pack is what his purple/pink arrow is pointing to.
