heater blower not working any more after car was parked up in Austria at the Hotel for 6 weeks!!!!

Before the blower was a bit noisey, but always worked. Sometimes i can hear for a split second or so the blower attempting to work. I think its the blower or the resistor, does anyone have nay experience of how to change either of them? Any advise from someone who did it would be much apprechiated, its a 11/2002 2.2DCi………FrownEmbarassed

The fan is probably blocked due to an entry of water through the air inlet in the cockpit. This is a phenomenon known on Velsatis.
The rotor is locked by the rust. but it is easy to disassemble and clean.

If it is the case you need also to suppress the root cause of water in air inlet

 Is the water ingress on Vel Satis caused by poor sealing, or dirt blockage?

 I have kept the scuttle and drains clean but if there is any sealing to be done I would like to do it now rather than wait for water.

the water ingress on Vel Satis  by dirt blockage.

It's not easy to explain in english for me, but I will try.

 

Under the plastic mesh behind the damper head, there is a hole for the flow of water coming from the windscreen. One each side of the car. Usually the hole becomes clogged and water escape in the passenger compartment by ventilation hole!
it is esay to do a test: pour a bottle of water on the side of the windscreen,: it must elapse in the wing behind the wheel. Then do the same test on the other side

 Thank you !  I give those areas a regular clean with very flexible rod that electricians use for feeding cables through pipe.

Hello Konrad

the blower motor is under the dashboard. easy access by passenger's feet.

Just remove the protection, and after a single screw and the electrical connector. Then turns a little the blower motor block in the anti-clockwise and it goes alone. it is for the French Velsatis, I think the same on Velsatis English, but on the other side!
