Hi Guys and Gals

The heater blower on my 52 fiesta 1.4 diesel only works on setting 4 so it looks like a problem with the resistor unit. Does anyone know the location of this unit please? A picture would also be good.

Thanks

Hello

I Know this is not an answer as such but i thought they had gone back to a mechanical valve.

Iam only questioning this because when you turn the temperature control you feel a cable movement and it sometimes gets sticky.

Assuming this is an early mk6

Hi Jamie

The temperature control is mechanical but the fan blower control is definitely an electrical switch that feeds a resistor unit on settings 1 to 3, none of which work. Setting 4 bypasses the resistor unit and turns the fan on full so you always at least have that. It's the resistor unit I'm trying to find.

Come on folks, surely someone out there knows where it's fitted?

I had this exact problem on my 54 plate mk6 fiesta -- I dug out the receipt for you, I took it to a local garage and was charged for "HEATER RESISTER SUPPLY AND FIT" which cost 43.78 Incl vat.
Parts - 12.27, Labour 25.00

Sorry I can't provide you any more technical info.
