Espace 2.0i Heater Blower Motor

Post by AChalmers » 05 Aug 2001, 19:08

I have lost all 3 first speeds of the fan and it now only works on full. Do i need to replace the complete blower assembly or can i just change the switch ??

I don't know for certain, but this usually means the rheostat has failed. This is a typical problem on VW's and about £60 to replace.

Why no try and remove the plug fitted to he rear of the switch and try to 'Bridge' the conections with a piece of wire. This is a cheap and easy way to diegnose if the heater motor is at fault.
Remember a switch is a lot easier to replace than a heater motor.
Hope I could help

Im not sure but on Lagunas and Meganes it usually means that either the switch or the heater resistor is knackered. Check the resistor unit which I think actually plugs into the motor unit.
