    So go down the local scrappy - They'll more than likely have one in.

    It's quite rare for them to go, so if you got one from scrappy, it'll probably be good

    1. Passenger side- remove panel from underneath glove box, above where your feet would go all you need is a star screwdriver.

    2. Have a look at the back at the rear of the centre console(you need to get your head right in) and look up you will see the blower resistor and the connector cable .

    3. At this stage you don't have to unplug the connector give it a few wiggles and a wee bit of leverage it will slot out its clipped into place with a small lug on the resistor. so once that small lug is free it will come out

    4. Unplug the connector, connect new Resistor and slot it back into place

    5. check that the new resistor is working with all blower speeds and reinstall foot-well panel, job done

    Please Note this resistor was for the Analogue System . Digital system is the Hedgehog type final stage resistor, this is the same process but you will require a T20 torx Stubby Screwdriver or Bit to remove the resistor.

    The pictures are borrowed from other party

    Hope this helps, if you have any queries or if anyone would like to add anything that I've left out feel free.
    i can find nothing of the sort lol

    As the cold weather has started (first ice on me windscreen this Thursday), thought I'd better make the effort and fix me heater!

    Hedgehog off FleaBay for £16, your wonderful instructions + 30 Mins and I'm all toasty again.

    Many Thanks

    I found my digital FSR under the drivers side panel (left side drivers seat). I turned the key on and set the fan on. When I started to remove the FSR or wiggle the wires, the fan started working. Is it possible that the FSR is good and just a wiring problem? Or is the FSR intermittent and will go out again? Great thread, thank you!
