Scenic Fan not working on all settings

I had a problem with my 2004 Scenic 1.4 where the fan would not work on setting number 2. It turned out to be a burnt out connection on the connector block to the resistor pack. My Haynes manual suggested that it was a faulty resistor pack, but this was not the case. There must have been a poor connection on the block connector which then got hot under load, and then melted a section of the block connector which only made matters worse!

To get to the connector you have to remove the whole of the dashboard, including the passenger air bag. Not a job to be taken lightly !! I managed a local repair on the resistor connector block & everything is working again.

Have a look at the picture of my burnt connector block.
