Heater fan heading west.

Post by knebby on Tue 27 Oct 2015 - 19:02

Mine's due another service and I know it needs pads and discs but my heater fan has also been playing up, either not working or if it does it's with a rattly noise. I've taken to wearing two pairs of socks now the weather's getting cooler!

Any of our knowledgeable posters out there able to reassure me that it's a five minute job costing next to nothing?

Usually the cabin heater fan of a car is the hardest to access, along with the heater matrix. Not good news.

The usual reason for a heater fan acting up is the resistors that control the number of speeds on the fan burn out. There is usually a resister pack, that can be replaced.

I assume the winds controls the fan speeds this way, most cars do. Pity we have no elect diagram.

The other fault possible is the electric fan itself with worn brushes, requiring new brushes, or a replacement fan.

W111NNDY's in on the 11th for another service, discs, pads and a look at the heater. Looking for a bank to rob before then.....

You should do the discs and pads yourself. Wink

Can you confirm my estimated costs where I did the brake change write-ups please?

Apparently, unlike the Megane where the glove box comes out to give access tothe heater, it seems the whole fascia has to come out I the Wind. The guy was undoing things tosee how to get at it and the heater came on, so he left it at that hoping it was a loose connection. I doubt it as although the heater has been working intermittently, it has also been making a real rattly noise as it some bearings or something are worn out. Anyway, its working at the mo.

Re the brakes, I haven't any inclination to fiddle with things I know nothing about and have no interest in, particularly if it could kill me if I got it wrong! Re the cost, front discs were £57, pads were £46, and there was 2.5 hours labour for everything. All plus vat of course.

I am with Knebs on this if in doubt pay someone that knows what they are doing. But to be fair Araf if I lived near you I know who I would want at the garage with me asking questions .

Modern cars are assembed with the dash going in separately as a oner, and then screwed into the car.  

This is great for assembly as it takes 15 seconds, but hellish to get at parts behind the dash, like your heater.
