Renault Clio 2 - Heater Fan Not Working*FIXED*

Well after trauling the internet looking for a fix for my blower not working i stumbled across this site, so armed with common faults i started.

Now my fault was no blower on 1234 so this might not help some of you.

remove driver scuttle panel

unbolt firewall 10ish 10mm bolts

unplug fan connector and check voltage with ignition on and fan switch at 4

If you have 12volts then this is the cheap fix for you.

Remove blower unit (3 10mm bolts) and multiplug (slide red part out) and unclip the plastic clips making sure not to snap them (i broke 2 lol)

Now the unit is in 2 halfs grab the fan part and wiggle the motor unit out.

Pop the metal clips off sides to get to the brushes (2 clips & 2 springs)

If like me you will the wires and brushes destroyed.

Search ebay or google for siemens motor brushes and purchase (12.50 for a pair)

now these will be to big but the graphite is soft as butter so these can be filed down so they slide in witout binding. (might also need to be shortened to around 15mm in length) I used some from a mk1 golf unit so size might vary.

you now need to trim the original wires to 10mm ish in length, also do the same on the new brushes.

Solder the 2 wires together and reassemble.

Plug back up and hey presto working blower.

saving of 195 from stealers for a hours work.

Hope this is of use to someone?

Cheers

HI Funk-star,

Ive been searching inet as well to find a solution to what i have.
I have this; fan not working in either of 1234. But it is working when i apply 12v staright to fan(dismantled it) from car battery. THat means fan itself (without resistences block) is fine.
Now kud u please explain, u said
"remove driver scuttle panel

unbolt firewall 10ish 10mm bolts

Do u mean to say there is a fan connector behind driver panel? Is it easy to open panel? Do u need to dismantle steering wheel to get access to fan connector?
How do you start opening drivers panel? where are those 10mm bolts?
I have Haynes...

Its all under bonnet work, the 10mm bolts are on the firewall / bulkhead, you will see the panel under screen area behind engine which will un bolt and allow easy acess to the fan gubbins (not the scuttle tray)
You can then unplug the motor and test voltage.

Where are you putting a direct 12v supply to the fan?

also if like you say the fan works then i would suggest checking the switch or fuse.

Hope you get it sorted

Cheers

Re: Renault Clio 2 - Heater Fan Not Working*FIXED*

Hey sorry to be a pain but i am having the same problem as i am getting nothing when i turn on the fans. any chance could put a few pics on just to show us how to do it. Tell me where to go if ya dont want to

Are you also on about under where the window wipers are because i thought the motor was under there and there is a plug that could need cleaning under there

Re: Renault Clio 2 - Heater Fan Not Working*FIXED*

if the fan motor spins connected directly, the resistor pack is most likely failing.

Hope this helps.
