    Is that a big job? Any tutorials on here for that?

    So i tried switching round the dials last night and hey presto - fully working blower on 1,2,3 and 4 again!! The garage guys must have put them back in the wrong positions.

    Muchas Muchas Gracias!!

    This is a you-know-what of a job. For me 9 times out of ten the fault is with the slider and a few hours (......) gently bending it to improve the contacts has done the trick but be very careful as (at least here in Spain.......) it cant be bought separately, only with the head unit at €327............

    Can you get the fan dials off without taking the whole unit out of the dash? Mine seems to be holding half the dash in - it's the only bit that doesn't rattle so I don't want to fiddle with it more than I need to!

    My fan only worked on 4, I put a new thermal fuse in (right pain of a job - previous owner had smashed the lower half of the duct the fan plugs into and it was held together with cable ties) and now it works on 3 (full speed) and balanced on the detent between 1 and 2 (lower speed). I'm not convinced the fan is the right part as it apparently came out of a Jetta - plug fits on snugly though, maybe the wiring's a bit different? Fingers crossed it just needs the contacts bent a little...
