Hi Folks,

Having got my left indicator problem sorted out - thanks to Bob 925 - I am now looking for some help with the other problem I have at present. Mine is a 1998 1.6e RT Alize with air-con and the blower for air into the cabin doesn't work at all. I have heard of some only working on the 4th speed - but mine is totally dead (includes the 'other side' for recirculating air). The air con appears to work since the light comes on and there is a slight increase in revs but, because the blower won't work, no air comes out! There is warm and cold air coming in when the vents are open so it's heating / cooling OK.
I spoke to the mechanic who works on my cars and he suggested that the fuse may have blown because of a blocked pollen filter so I removed the cover, opened the pollen filter box and.... no filter inside! I have now replaced the filter element and checked the fuse (second up and second in from the right according to the diagram in the fuse cover). Fuse seems OK and I have taken the switch panel out of the dash and the cables are attached OK and the multiplug connector is a good fit.
I am thinking it could be the rotary switch itself that is faulty but I don't know how I could check it. I had thought of taking the switch out of my 1998 Scenic - but it doesn't have air-con so the switch gear is probably different.
At the moment this is the only problem with the car and I am perfectly happy with it otherwise, but the windows misting up inside can be dangerous and I am keen to get it sorted out.
Any ideas / suggestions would be most welcome.
