Hi all,

Can anyone tell me where the heater fan speed control unit is located on a 2003 Renault Megane Scenic (its the ugly one with the back end that sticks out) I have located the fan motor but have been unable to trace the wires to a speed control device, there is so much stuff packed in under the steering column (power steering control) and with a bad back i have been unable to trace the wiring to the unit i am wanting to test and it was raining.........oh come on, feel sorry for me please.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thank you.

Dave.

Dave,

It's the blower motor resistor you're looking for.

It should be located in the main air duct of the air distribution housing just downstream from the blower motor.

Admittedly my information is for a Megane (not a Scenic) but I think they are pretty similar in this area.

Is the blower motor not located on the passenger's side? or am I missing something here.

It's raining here too, and I do feel for you mate! Tomorrow will always be a better day (so my wife always tells me). Trouble is, she's often wrong.

Chuck

Hi Dave, the resistor is fitted as described in previous reply, but wiring runs up and around heater plug is on drivers side. If you remove speedo head you will see multi plug fitted to heater housing but difficult to reach.

hope this helps

Hi guys, thanks for the info!

Yes the heater fan is located on the passenger side, quite high up under the dash/behind the glove box, looks a bitch to replace!

So if i remove the instrument cluster i should be able to see the speed control? sounds like lots of hastle for something they should expect to fail! I hate French cars, the older heaters were so easy to fix!!

The anoying thing is that this job is a favour to a friend!

Common fault on these, resister connection and wiring plug burn out, dash needs to come out to do it. you can see it through the clock aperture but cant get to it to do the repair.       pete.

Fixed! I accessed the speed control through the instrument cluster aperture, luckily the conections were not burnt and just the speed control was at fault, with a bit of a fiddle and a scraped arm i managed to change the unit without too much fuss, thanks for your advice everyone.
