Hi

 

After having my car parked up for 2 month due to a broken wrist i am now back using it, however although the heater is working it only works on full blast which is not only noisy but the car is getting a bit too warm, i had a similar problem i my previous car so think i have an idea of what it is ..... could it be the heater resister under / in the glove box?

 

all replies greatfully received.

Thanks

Yep, heater resistor is the most likely cause - they seem prone to failure, for some reason.  Easy enough job to do yourself.

I just found this as I wasn't sure where the resistor was on a Fiesta:

Yep, my Fiesta has exactly the same problem: either nowt or my face blasted off. Currently in for repair as we speak, so I will report back if it differs from what BigD has just said...
