Location of blower motor resistor on 2001 Tahoe

Like the title says, does anyone know where the blower motor resistor on 2001 Tahoe is located? It is bad in our 2001 Tahoe (have only high blower speed) and I need to replace it but don't know where to begin to look for it!

I think it's on the passenger side under the dash on this year. Might have to remove a cover plate to see it. Common for the resistor to burn up and char the wire connector too. Not a cheap fix.
