Take a ohm meter to the posts on the back of the resistor. If its a potentiometer, odds are, it has three posts. The middle is the input, and the two outers are the output. If you turn it all the way to the left, then the middle, and left post should gives you the highest rating, and the right should be the lowest. Or the other way around? Can't remember, been a while.

heh, its a slide. and unfortunately my volt/ohmmeter is broken, ****, guess i get to go buy a new one.

eh i might as well go into detail

got a real nice massaging executive computer chair today, but i dont like the idea of a wired remote, keeps droppin gto the floor. so i figure ill make an external panel and mount it to my computer area, i look at the board and it looks easy enough but i realize that theres a vr on it that i couldnt ID, controls the massage intensity, think i could just mess around with random ones? im pretty sure i cant overvolt it. im not sure though.

what you're looking at is call a potentiometer, Of course you know of its function. Are there any color coatings on the thing? or is it in its usual casing, soldered directly to the board?
sometimes the color markings can show it range in ohms via the resistor color code.
