Driving last night. Turned defroster on and smoke starts coming out by my feet.

Smelled like pine needles, not really electrical.

Turned defroster off and drove home smoke free.

So, I only get like 2 hrs a week to tinker, got job/kid any ideas to help me make the most of my time?

Thanks!

My 84 just did the same thing on the lowest setting fan speed. Pulled the fan housing apart and found a massive mouse nest inside the cavity. After cleaning I had no more issues.

That resistor should be under the hood and close to the blower motor. Pull it out, insert a shop vac and turn it on. If you have a few more minutes, pull the blower motor and vacuum that out also.

Look @ this thread from Wed. and follow the links for pictures and text I'm not good on the computer or I'd post the mouse nest pictures.

Thanks all!
I got the hood loose and out if the way, cowling almost free.

Blower motor is the large cylinder on passenger side of bay?

This is what you’re removing.

There was a LOT
The chute that goes down to the bottom was packed full.
