1) The three wires for the 3 speeds are accessible at the fan speed switch.
2) The positive wire to the blower motor is accessible as described above.
3) The resistor pack needs to be in an airflow to keep cool, therefore in the nose air intake seems like a good location.
4) Route all 4 wires (1 & 2 above) to the nose air intake and connect to new resistor pack.
5) There are wiring routes through to the nose.
This is very topical, the car I was in the process of buying seems to have developed this problem. I'm not totally getting you, you're saying you still need to cut the access panel? Can you elaborate please?
