Re: Renault Scenic I - Heater Fan Fix
Could be either or both; a few years back the heater fan on my Scenic stopped working. It was around £500 or was it £600 to fix it as the motor cannot be bought alone but only as part of the complete fan assembly, plus the resistor pack had also failed at over £100 plus VAT. The usual reason for failure, as in my car's case, was the silly drains hidden between the inner and outer front wings become blocked and the rainwater cannot escape so ends up going into the fan entry duct. Blockage is caused by some very cheap one-way drain flaps becoming jammed by mud and debris. I found out about this too late, but needless to say I have removed the flaps and we've not had any water getting into the car via the air inlet since.
