No high speed is the resistor pack and/ or connection issue, (mine does that too). Sometimes you can pull the connector and clean/ scrape it to bring it back to life, If not, you may consider a new one and maybe the connector/ wire harness...

The resistor pack is right behind the coolant recovery bottle.

It's just the way they have it listed, it's the same as http://amzn.to/2pPAnVl but with the pigtail.

But just a couple of $ more you can get AC Delco http://amzn.to/2qMEr81

For the front blower on 96 and up, it's built into the blower motor controller/resistor pack. See pictures: https://sites.google.com/site/astrosafa ... ac-airflow

Super duper easy, pop the pins, disconnect the electrical(and maybe the overflow tube), and let it lay there out of the way.
Edit: yes you have to lift them out of the way, it's obvious when you do it.

They all crack eventually.
Yes, you have to lift them out of the way, you really don't have to remove the washer lines, but you can if you want.

Takes longer to talk about it than to do it :)

This ^^^ is what car repairs (anything mechanical) is all about. Rarely is there a part you can't remove without simply looking at how it's mounted. Lots of posts, maybe a lot recently, asking questions about "What size is this bolt" or similar. The answer is "It's whatever size wrench fits it". Start sticking wrenches on it and you'll find it in one or two tries. Same way I buy shoes. I don't measure my feet. I grab a pair of 10.5s plus a pair of 10s and 11s. Try one on. If it needs larger, go to the larger one.

In nearly every case, we have to remove THIS part and then THAT part just to gain access to the part we want to work on. In the process, we may learn that both THIS and THAT parts have gone bad, broken their mounting flange or whatever. GOOD. We've then learned that there's another part or two that NEED replacing. They don't need replacing because we've accessed them, they need replacing because they're old and past their life expectancy. Everything on our vans, unless we've replaced it, is past it's life expectancy.

One of the most wonderful inventions for casual mechanics is that silly camera in everyone's cellphone. You can take 10 billion pictures of a widget as you disassemble it. When it's time to reassemble, you've built your own assembly manual. Just scroll the pics in reverse.
