Are you actually referring to the blower motor? If so, and it's only working on the highest speed setting, then yes, it's more than likely the resistor pack. If it's not working at all, then it could be one of several things.

More clarification of the problem please.

Before it stopped working altogether, was only the fastest speed working? If so, then yes, the resistor, if not, then it could be the speed selector switch in the dash.

It depends where the blower motor is situated. If it is below the windscreen, under the plastic cowling, then yes, but if it's up behind the dashboard, then most probably will need to be accessed with the glovebox removed. I can't recall right now in which area it's situated, but hopefully someone with that info will be along shortly.
