You can see where it is in the 1st picture and lots of pictures of the fan and motor as it's a complete unit.

I took the plastic shroud off (label the vacuum tubes!) and discovered the blower was full of debris. I shop vac’d it out and the two piece housing over the cylindrical fan was fiddly to put it back together. Take pictures. Before I put the shroud back, I tested the motor and discovered my switch didn’t work on high. Replaced that and I was in business again. Do this on a warm day if possible because it’s easy to crack the shroud like I did.

My car has no fan at speed 1 and I have a spare resistor to fit but I not be able to get the wires out, I’m taking my dash out this winter so that is when I plan on changing my resistor.
There maybe a easier way to do it on a Mk2 as my car is a Mk1?
