Im sorry to bring bad news but this isnt a good idea because if the motor is ok it wont befor to long if you do this "repair"
For one you will be running the motor flat out and as the french never design anything to run to its max without melting motors connections wiring or all three, you will have problems, and in the short term would be my bet.
You would need a switch and circuit capable of running 25 amps continuous unless you use relays etc.
Get it repaired corectly, its not a complicated circuit and shouldnt take a good sparki very long to sort.

Thumbs up Eureka!!

Rather than complete a whole circuit myself I have just fed a power cable direct from the battery through a 20amp in-line fuse (and an independant switch for piece of mind) to the blower motor with all the other gubbings still attached.

The end result is that my blower motor works as it should do, I can lower and raise the speed using the dash controls as per normal.

This has at least given me some breathing space to find the money to get a proper fix. The proper fix, should also be quite a bit cheaper in the long run as I have identified the problem as an obvious break in the original power cable.

I can now awake in the frosty mornings and not worry about driving to work not being able to clear the windscreen anywhere near good enough.

Well done Scatz - now you can bask in the Siroco (North African hot winds) until the warmer months arrive.
