280GE Blower Resistor Pack replacement

I am a new member, this is my first post. I live in New Zealand on an island called Waiheke. I am told there is a total of around 20 G wagens in the whole of NZ, and three of those are on this small isalnd with a population of around 8,000.

In May I purchased a 1986 280GE SWB as island transport. This means not a lot of miles will be racked up (current estimate 3000 miles a year). The vehicle is in good condition (one previous owner, 70,000 miles) and i am slowly doing the easy upgrades - lenses, lighting, interior. The local Mercedes agent brought the service history up to date for surprisingly little money.

I purchase all my parts in the US and one recent purchase was a blower motor resistor pack, to restore the missing 1st and 2nd speeds on the 3 speed blower. I got most of the dahsboard off looking for the blower motor and then accessed a number of on-line technical forums. It would appear that I have to remove the heater assembly to get access to the blower motor when all I really want to do is replace the resistor pack. Do I really have to disconnect the heater, drain the radiator etc. etc or is there a quick way in to comeplte what should be a reasonably straight-forward tweak to the blower assembly?

All and any advice welcome
