Heater fan blower motor.

Post by Old Mac Rocco » Thu Dec 05, 2013 4:34 pm

Just in case anyone else is on the lookout for a heater fan blower motor here are two links.
Thanks to Ian for the first one.

Or

Any feedback on these two fans would be appreciated.
Being a tight fisted jock I'm going for the second one.
My only problem is that it might be the switch as it works intermittently (apart from today when it was snowing !!!!!!!!).

Mine's running a bit random too Sandy.

Guess I'll hold out for a while though (no snow here).

Does your's blow then stop, then run slow, then stop etc...?

Sometimes it works but very rarely.
Hasn't the same power as usual I am convinced it is the blower itself but would like to try and test the switch.
A while back I had this smell you get just as plastic melts so I think that was what caused it.

Had a sparky check mine out & it's the switch. Just ordered replacement on Fleabay for under £6. :D

Hi scrumpyone, Saw your post on t'other site and did a bit of research and found out that for some reason Volksbits were out of stock and some sites say it will fit and others say it won't.
There wasn't much difference in price as one offered free P & P and another charged £2.90 but there was only coppers between them at the end of the day.
I also came across this site which may or may not prove useful in the future

I have ordered the blower from VW Heritage but it is not here yet so can't really pass comment on it yet but I'll let you know once it is fitted.

Blower arrived today so a quick call on Monday to my top mechanic to see if he can fit it for me.
Fingers crossed.

I would under normal circumstance but the weather here just now is firkin desperate.
High winds rain and the occasional snow flurry, just normal Scottish summer weather.
If my man can't do it I'll have a go at it myself over Christmas as it a bit dodgy driving around with no blower to clear the screen.
Did one before iIrc and think I did it from the top and not from the inside. Bit tight on the knuckles but the frostbite should help numb the pain.
Any tips anyone ???????????

Best tip - do it indoors if you can!

I know what you mean about the weather, it was horrendous this morning in Durham, I wanted to cover my car back up before I left to come back to London! I just hope the 6 bungees and 2 rachet straps hold the thing on!
