    heater only works on no4

    hi people. found yesterday on my dads astra f that the heater only works on number 4. do you think it will be the blower motor resistor thats failed? where can i get one from and how much do you think it will be? also are they all the same as it has aircon. many thanks and cheers to all.

    resistor pack under the scuttle trim cant remember off top of head exact way to get to it, but will try, first remove wipers, unscrew trim and remove, remove cabin filter and r/pack should now be viewable on r/h/s secured in by a single torx screw, unplug wires and unscrew, then fitting is just reverse of above.


    if i have omitted anything people please feel free to add/amend at will

    If you have a MK3 then yes as above the variable resistor for the heaters is behind the skuttle panel.

    On the MK4's it's behind the glove box
