That will almost certainly be the resistor pack, which is loccated to the left of the clutch pedal on a RHD car. About £85 from Citroen if I remember corectly, try ebay for a cheaper but new one.

Its very easy, if you remove the panel to the left of the clutch pedal it is just in there. i think there is a green connector on it. It is held in with a few screws which is the most fiddly bit to do :)

When I was faced with this job on daughter's Xsara == (heater fan constantly blowing at full belt) I removed the heater entirely to replace the transistor pack. Unfortunately it only worked for a month so I got a new heater.
