I've attached a 'how to' guide that I nicked from another ford forum. I had planned doing this myself but never got around to it. I need to source the parts needed. Hope this helps.

It might be an idea to change your pollen filter. It's located under the glove box to the right of the centre console. There is a letter box type plastic cover that gets unscrewed and the filter is in there. It is a bit awkward to change. If the misting is really bad I would place some silica gel sachets on the dash. If it's like a shower in your car then the dehumidifier would be the best thing for it.

#136660 My First Car.........help Please!

There is no drain plug on the ib5 gearbox and the drive shaft needs to be removed, but I'm not sure if the 1.8 is uses ib5 or mtx75. The blower motor acting up could be a faulty resistor pack. I've attached some pics from a 'how to' guide.

Here is a quick quide on how to change a resistor pack - for rectifying the annoying fan/heater issue, of it only working on speed 4.

This works on Mk1/Mk1.5 - Im not sure on the Mk2.

First thing - Do you find that your fan is working on setting 4, but does nothing on settings 1,2,3? If so, your resistor pack could be at fault, and is simple and cheap to repair.

Step 1 - Order a new Resistor pack from ford - Part No 1311115, priced at 9.95+VAT = (11.69).

Step 2 - Empty your glove box, and drop.
In the pic below, you will see a bar to the left that locks in to the face of the glove box (see red box). Unclip this, then push in the side walls of the glove box to release it the rubber stoppers (see green box), this will allow the glove box to be dropped fully.
NOTE - My Mk1 doesnt have the bar (red box), where my Mk1.5 does.

If you look in the space to the rear right, you will see the resistor pack (the blue rectangle thing at the back).

Step 3 - Release the cable clip, and undo the screw at the bottom (just below the cable clip) I had to use a long handled screw driver. Make sure you dont drop the screw.

Step 4 - Take your new resistor pack, connect the wires and screw back in place

Step 5 - Test your heater/fan control speed dial.

Thats it - It took me no more than 5 mins to do.
