Re: Renault Scenic I - Heater Fan Fix
I managed to get a replacement motor from the scrapyard, complete with the resistor pack for £20 this morning. That was easy because I just ripped the long bracket off with a huge pair of water pump pliers but I did have to be sensible and chop the end of the bracket on our own car with a hacksaw blade.
Old motor out - plus about half a litre of green water! - new motor in, dash back together in about half an hour.
Then I did the sensible thing and popped the wipers off, took off the black plastic trim under the windscreen and scraped out ten years' worth of gunk from around the well-blocked drain holes.
Thanks to this forum we now have warmth, conditioned air and a windscreen that we can actually see through.
