Have a look at the other thread - access resistor pack in 5 mins. The wires are in there, you have to look in through the hole whilst standing outside the car to see them.

Hi I wish I'd found this thread before replacing mine. I did it the recommended way - entire dash out - and although it worked and gave more room to work than yours does. (I upgraded the wiring loom with Renaults stupid "every wire is purple and no instructions included" pack.) Whilst doing all the removing and replacing I did something which lead to my "Dash stays on" thread which no garage seems to be able to fix! (Dash stays on) and no ones ever heard of!
This more than likely wouldn't have happened if I'd used your method and not had to disturb all that plastic.

Re: Scenic II - Access to resistor pack?

I have an 04 Scenic II with AirCon. The "power Pack" failed so I ordered a new one from Renault. It was only -5 deg C when I changed mine - luxury.

You do not have to completely remove the dashboard as described in the Haynes manual. I discovered this because Renault failed to deliver the part so I bodged the "power pack" by soldering a wire between two of the terminals on the power transistor. This put the fan on full blast but as it was -5 at the time this was considered a virtue.

Second time around, after the part had arrived, I did a lot less work. I doubt the 5 minute method would work for an aircon car as the power connectors are securely clipped in; and clipped in vertically for that matter so you can't pull them out as they foul on the dash.

It is only necessary to loosen the top of the dashboard and lift it up onto some chocks to allow you to get your hand in.

Therefore you can avoid having to remove - the steering wheel (and drivers air bag) - The electronics unit (next to the glove box) - The tweeters - the sunlight sensor - mess with the passenger airbag connectors.

Just be careful not to accidentally damage the left hand passenger airbag connector when lifting the dash up or down as it's very close to the electronics unit.

After refitting the top of the dash get underneath with a torch and check the left hand passenger airbag connector is still in place.
