Hi to all Smile
This is my first post on the forum.
I recently bought an 1996 2.6 Auto .I have noticed that the heater blower only works on full speed so looking for ideas is it the switch or the blower its self.All help appreciated
Colin

It's more likely the resistor for the fan.

It's up behind the glovebox attached to the fan / heater assembly

It's slightly tricky and you will skin your hands. You'll be lying upside down in the passenger footwell with a torch to see what your doing.

You could try a wanted ad on here, classic-audi or try Ebay for 2nd hand. It may be best to get a new one from the dealer

No- the fan is attached to the trunking at the back of the dashboard- not sure if that's removable before.

Passenger side footwell, remove glovebox.
You may then see the trunking (big, oblong shape) that runs behind the dash. The resistor is akin to a battery pack- clips in place, if memory serves. Look for the dashboard / heater matrix removal thread in the stickies- it may show you an exploded diagram...

This is an old post I know but just to say in the last couple of days I fixed the resistor pack on my heater fan controller or rather I replaced the thermal fuse that accompanies it. Given the simplistic nature of the circuit it is probably more likely that the fuse will blow rather than the resistor pack itself - thats whats it's there for. A quick search online produced some fuses rated to 16A and 184c. Couple of pieces of chock block - there is a risk that soldering the fuse back in might result in its demise, and I have all but my variable control below fan speed 1 working again. I'm guessing the variable resistor on the back of the fan control is probably shot, but I can live with that.
