Yep, easily done.



BTW, note the thermal fuse:

I am not clear here what is the relevance of the thermal fuse. On my car the connections between pack and loom had overheated and were very charred looking and so the pack and loom needed replacing (or bypassing with my cheap repair). Replacing the thermal fuse would not have helped as the poor connections would overheat still, if they were in any fit state to pass any current at all still, which is very doubtful.

If others are finding that just replacing the fuse cures their different type of failure, then what was causing the fuse to blow? If it is blowing due to some other fault then replacing it will be a short term solution. Replacing it with a higher value one is dangerous especially if there is a fault causing it to run hotter than normal.

The thermal fuse is there to protect the resistors from overheating if the blower fan fails. As you know the resistors are in the air path created by the fan, this keeps them cool. If this air path fails then the resistors get very hot, the fuse then blows to protect against fire etc.

The thermal fuse does not protect against the connector overheating, nor would it have any purpose in your relocated resistor solution.

resistor pack access

Hi,
Followed your instructions and photos on removing the resistor pack through the digital dash display. Found it very clear and was able to release the plug which is burnt and unscrewed the torx screw which secures the pack, and have uncliped it but there is not enough length in the wire RED and BLACK to get it to the dash opening like in your picture could you advise me on what to do next

HELP! 2004 scenic II, no blower on setting 1. but 2,3,4 work okay. Air con only switches on when setting on 1, and turns off on 2,3,4! Need to change resistor pack? BUT have followed instructions on here and there are no wires at all on the right of the dash. I can stick my whole arm in there (practically) and then is no connection with wires anywhere near where the photos on here show! Please help I have to have the blower on 2 constantly, and have no aircon.
Thanks
