Thanks for that info, that's a useful starting point.

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'll have a look there

Found the vss..... that's not designed to come out with the engine in situ is it..... :angry:

Access from above is limited by the stupid routing of brake pipes that suddenly jut out into the only gap in the engine bay on that side and access from underneath is pretty restrictive too. Guess I'll be living with the speedo dropping off for a while then. Interestingly a side effect of the speedo not working is that the revs rise slightly during gearchanges.....

What causes that then?

your vss (vechial speed sensor) should be at the back/top of the gearbox
