Re: Clio - Heater not woking!

If it started to work only intermittently and has now stopped it is unlikely to be a fuse. It will either be dampness in the connector to the fan motor or it will be the brushes of the motor not making a clean contact to the rotor.

If you have a Haynes manual for your car the first is easy to solve, just pull apart the connectors and clean and dry them. The second requires the fan blower assembly to be removed from the car and for the motor to be removed and cleaned (this isn't in the Haynes manual). It's an easy enough job if you're an experienced car DIY'er and familiar with electrics/electronics. My Clio had exactly this problem last winter and it took me a couple of hours to get it out of the car, strip the motor out, clean it and re-fit it all back into the car.
