Renault Laguna 2 - Heater Blower *FIXED*
My heater blower gave up the ghost during the winter after my drains at the top of the wings had become blocked and I could hear water sloshing about in the heater. Not having a nice garage to work in I bought an electric demister and put on warm clothes, and used the wife's car when we went out . When this hot weather came and I couldn't use the AC, I thought I had better have a look.
Looking in Haynes I was surprised how easily it was accessed ! I took it out and thought I might as well have a go at fixing it.
I unclipped the end cover and looked inside. I freed the brushes using a little meths and checked to see if I had a circuit, no such luck. Plugged it back in and tried it. No joy. I couldn't get to see the commutator, let alone clean it. Nothing to lose, I poured some meths into the motor, squeezed the brushes hard in and turned the motor. I checked for a circuit and found a resistance. I let the meths dry a bit, put the end back on and plugged it in again. It worked!!
It has been great having the AC on again this week.
