Thanks for that. Any idea how I'd go about doing this myself? Don't know a lot about cars, but am wiling to give it a go! Whereabouts would I start? Thanks in advance!!

remove glove box and look at the heater motor and it will be looking at you

Thanks for that, have now replaced the resistor with a brand new one and still no blowers. Changed fuse and it blew again straight away! So must be something else, any other sugestions out there? Cheers, Sam

unplug the heater blower (the actual motor ) then put in a new fuse and go through the heater blower settings if it does not blow the fuse then probably the heater fan is siezed .if however it still blows with it unplugged tyhen you have a short elsewhere
