    Its the resistor mate. In beside the heater blower behind the glove box. Not a major job to change but bit fiddly! It will be because the drain is blocked under the plastic panel where the wipers are and water is coming in. Footwell probably wet also? Make sure change pollen filter at same as it will probably be soaked too. Here is the link, not sure but reckon there should be a how2 on here
