Hi, first post so please be gentle with me! I had a search before I posted this but couldn't find an answer.

I've got a 2004 Scenic II 1.6VVT, just under 50K on the clock.

The other day after a motorway blast the temperature guage shot up once we slowed into traffic. I turned the interior heater up to full blast and it cooled it just enough that I could continue and park up safely, but this weekend I though I'd have a look under the bonnet.

The first thing that struck me was how utterly difficult it is to get to any of the fuses and relays!

After that, I noticed that that the radiator fan is impossible to move by hand - is this normal? I'd always assumed that a fan would spin freely even without power, or is there something locking it in place on these cars? I've had a good look to make sure there's nothing obvious impeding it.

Also, the interior fan only works on position 3. I've seen from a search that this is a known and very common problem with the resistor pack, but would this have any effect on the engine temperature creeping up?

Many thanks in advance for any advice.
