Look inside from the right hand side of the steering wheel and you'll see this loom of wires:

Here another view of the wires leading into the resistor pack.

Pinch both sides of the connector and it'll come out.

There is a section of loom available from Renault to replace this plug which is prone to melting. Renault parts personnel told me that the live feed is now shared across two terminals, i've yet to get one to find out.

Update, accessed the resistor pack itself tonight:

Looks like I have the modified resistor pack (replaced under warranty), but not the modded loom, which passes the live feed across 2 terminals. The pack has the 2 terminals waiting, but only 1 connected.

Hi Guys,

Am i right in saying my connector which looks slightly burnt out on 2 pins is my issue too. Obviously there is 5 heating settings 0-4, does each pin represent a setting? if you see my picture am i correct in saying top right is the setting 0 ( heater off) and top left is setting 1 going down to 4....... If so pins 2 and 4 are slightly melted which looks like the cause of my heat settings 2 and 4 not working. DO I just cut these off and splice a brand new connector on and thats job done......??

many thanks
