Does anyone know where a heater fan (blower) is located? My problem is that only 4. (fourth) level of blowing works! (1., 2., and 3. dont work at all). I think that resistor assembly is responsible for this... Somebody said that this resistor assembly is located near the fan, so thats why I am asking where it is!

So the question is where do I need to look to find that fan and resistors?

Please help me! :) thank you!

Yeah, I found it! thanks!
I put the resistor assembly out, and cleaned it very good! Then I checked it with OHM meter and it worked. I put this thing back in with no luck... It still didnt work! Only fourth level worked :(

I checked the blower fuse, and it was ok as well as a blower relay.

The blower switch (speed selector) is turning normal and smooth, so I think that this should not be a problem! (maybe I am wrong)

I was wondering why the fourth level works... and I sort of figured out that it probably works because it is the maximum level and it probably doesnt go through the resistors, but directly on the battery (12V)! So the problem has to be related to the resistor assembly I think... Is there any fuse especialy for the first three levels (1,2 and 3)?

Any other opinions, suggestions? Its fokken driving me mad :s

thanx in advance!
