    Default carpets soaking

    just bought my signum last friday, but have noticed every footwell is soaking wet i thought the bloke i bought it off must have washed the carpets, but on saturday i mopped them useing a shammy, monday tried the vac at local garage, and today used the carpet cleaner managed to get out around quater of a litre with this. i've been reading other peoples problems like this and also my heater fan only seems to work on setting 4. as some one pointed out theres a fix in "the how 2" but dont think i have enough post counts to check it out. anyone local willing to help me with this

    Yeah the scuttle panel part is fine, but sounds like the resistor has blown also , if the fan is only working on setting 4 ?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Checking the scuttle drain and the front footwells for damp is an absolute must when buying a Vectra. My last Vectra (a Network Q purchase) had a damp passenger footwell I only discovered one month after buying the car. I now check regularly that my drain is clear by lifting the flap cut into the scuttle cover on the passenger side and checking that the area in front of the pollen filter and the rubber drain tube are both clear of water and debris.

    So easy to do at the same time as your other under-the-bonnet checks.

    Prevention is better than cure.

    thanks all, done the scuttle clean only a 5 min job (was really chuffed with myself as im not mechanicly minded) the amount of crap and water that came out was unbelievable, so will this clear the wet carpets? right next bit is the fan only blowing on setting 4, i took the pollen filter out which was dry and looking at the fan motor couldnt see any rust could easily turn it by hand, sprayed wd40 to make sure no water was in there. could i use motorcycle chain lube to lube it??? so as spenny said i need a resister???? how much is this and is easy to do, thanks in advance.

    82p from Maplin RS23A is what you need then 2 small electrical connector blocks and strip all the plastic off them then read the how to its easy will take about 1 hour or 20 mins if you are mechanically minded
