    hey up! welcome to AOC first of all!

    Can we have a bit more info?

    Do you here any noise form the motor but get now air? When it is working does it blow both hot and cold? etc.
    Have you replaced the pollen filter?

    Thanks

    Welcome

    So your fan only works on speed 4?

    With the section it's in i'll guess you have a MK3 Astra but this is pretty much the same for all the Astra's. The resistor park that controls the fan speeds seems to rust away and burn out. The parts about £35 from vauxhall and 30 minutes to a hours work depending on what the connector blocks like. It's mounted under the plastic panel in front of the wipers and it's in the middle but towards the passenger side
