    could be the motor sticking and causing this.

    I had my motor replaced as after it had gone through 2 resistors, one night the cabin filled with dense smoke and a screeching noise

    A new motor cured all, but it was all caused by wet carpet/blocked drain syndrome

    went thru 3 resistors in 4 weeks. Luckily i did the maplins thermal fuse fix so didnt cost a fortune.
    My fan motor would give a screech when first switching it on and i had to wack it up to number 4 to get rid of it.
    Did a bit of a search on here and then put lots of 3 in 1 oil on top of the spindle behind the pollen filter which cured the squeek and the resistor problem.

    hi - may blower doesn't work untill I select number 4 - so assuming it's the resistor. I have taken of the glove box but cant see the resistor assembly.

    Any ideas where I should be looking ?
