Re: Renault - Scenic II - Heater Fan *fixed*
Bought the car second hand August '13 for my Mum, however I did not notice that position 4 was not working. My brother mentioned this first. Now in the last 3 weeks, position 3 was not working.
The car is Scenic 1.4 '06 reg and it's only done 34k. Just got it fixed at an independent garage for £50 part and £180 labour (1 year warranty on part). Not sure if that is expensive (mechanic said it took 6 hours to change rheostat/resistor since he needed to pull out the whole dash, etc.) and if I should have asked Renault to sort it out.
The question is how does the resistor get damaged? I've just found a link where someone does the whole job themselves, and can understand why the labour cost is so high. Hope it's okay to post the link here:
