thanks huw,

i think thats what im going to do.. ill dig thru my receipts + see if i can
find a part number [i have about 7k$ of dealer receipts that came with the
car, incl a $4k tranny rebuild =], maybe compare to current part numbers to
check the rumors.

in the meantime ill use full blast, replace the resistor when i can [theyre
on special at TPC, btw..] adn call it a day.

related Q - with the fan control off [ac+recirc buttons off] the car steams
up [driving or parked] like i'm 17 on lovers lane. it has been very
rainy/damp lately.. is this a symptom of sumthin not workin right?
