Question Removed the glovebox

Cheers Neogis
The glovebox is now removed. I have a large plastic box type thing in front of me There are a couple of connectors on top of what I think is the resistor pack I have pulled of two plugs from the unit but any ideas how the resistor pack comes out. There must be some clips somewhere. Any ideas. You may have guessed that I am useless at this sort of thing I usually stick it in the garage. But money is tight so its time to start getting my hands dirty

Hi skruss
On my Laguna, the two plugs are connected to a small black box. This box clips onto the plastic duct of the ventillation system. In Haynes Workshop manual it says that on airconditioned models, this box is integral with the duct and cannot be removed but in my Laguna which has air conditioning, the box is removable. On the left hand side there is a shiny clip at the base of the box (there may be more than one but I saw only one on mine) which needs to be prised off. When I prised it, it flew off and I could not find it again so I suggest you stick sellotape over it before prising it off. I assume you are following Ben1400's excellent posting of 7 June 2007 to fit the new thermal fuse . Good luck.

Smile Job Done

Finally managed to get the resister pack out Cut the old fuse out and soldered new one on to the remaining legs. Put it all back together and crossed fingers and toes Turned on the fan and success. Thanks everyone for their help. I now wish I had tried a few other small jobs. (replace bonnet catch, replace air direction cable) Would have saved me a tidy sum
Thanks again

Lightbulb Full Instructional with Pics

Hi, Thanks to everyone else so far for their help with this matter. I was really stumped and I couldn't have put together this how-to without the combination of several other posts. Just to confirm, the issue I am describing a solution for below is for a Renault Laguna (Mine is an air-conditioned V-reg 1.9dTI Alize). The blower motor controls only work on 4, not 1,2 or 3. Same applies to the recirculation setting on the opposite side of the dial.

I have posted this fix with pictures because it is the best way to show someone how to do something other that do it for them and let them watch. Most people have digital cameras/phone cameras and this should be done more often. I hope it helps anyone who has the same issue and isn't assumed to be a mechanical genius.

Screw driver with adaptor socket and correct size-lobe bit
Adjustable Spanner / Sockets / Pliars
Electrical Tape
Allen key (Just something I uses with the adaptor socket to get into the tight spots)

Also: Replacement/Renewed Resistor Pack as described above. I got my from They were very helpful. I looks like this:

Step 1:
Pop the bonnet and disconnect the negative (black) terminal of the battery using the spanner/sockets/pliars. Insulate with electrical tape and lower bonnet. We do this to avoid accidental discharge of the airbags which will send whatever is in your hand through your eye and into your brain. (No pics for illustration, sorry)

Step 2:
Remove the Glove compartment by removing all the sweet wrappers and pens from the glove compartment, peel back the front right, middle and left of the felt matting of the glovebox to reveal 3 hidden six-lobe screws. Remove them and the 4th one at the top of the glovebox in the center. Pull out the glovebox and remove the wiring. This pic shows the order of the wiring for re-assembly:

Step 3:
Disconnect the airbag wire (the thick orange one) for easier access, unplug the 2 connectors to the resistor pack and coax out the old resistor pack. There are no screws or clips holding this in place. It is just a snap fix. Put the new/repaired resistor pack in. RE-CONNECT THE AIRBAG!!

Step 4:
Underneath the passenger dash, in the footwell is the blower motor. You might need to remove some spongy insulation to get to it. The insulation is held in place with retainer clips. Pull these off with pliars. Pop off the casing covering the black and red spade-connector wires that lead to the old resistor pack, and replace with the wires leading to the newly fitted resistor pack.

Re-assemble blower motor and put insulation back. Note: You should be able to do this without removing the blower motor. I have removed it for illustration.

Step 5:
Wire up the glove compartment and replace in reverse order of removal. Reconnect the battery. Took me a little over 40 mins in total.

All done!

Wish you the best of luck,
