hi folks

on a T5 multivan where is the resistor pack / rheostat that selects the front windscreen demister fan speed?

usual fault - front screen demister fan only works when dial is on number 4, but cannot find the rheostat thingy itself to check it with a meter and replace it!

any suggestions of its location? :confused:

found it!

it is in the passenger footwell tucked up just below the airbag and is inserted into the fan ducting

had to remove the black footwell cover, end cap of dash with the door mirror demister tube leading to the door, the small panel immiediatly to the left of the airbag cover ( but NOT the airbag cover itself) and the lower part of the dash below the airbag to get to it.

all dash panel screws were 4mm Torx type

in situ, it looks about 4 inches long,black, oval with 2 small 6mm bolts holding it in place and a 4 pin electrical connection into it

quoted £32 plus vat from main dealer for new one

hope this helps someone in the future:ILU:

many thanks to ozyboy for aiming me in the right direction
