well lads i have a 2001 2.5 xtype,and the heater blower only works on setting 6,but before it starts blowing it whines quite loudly for a couple of minutes and then starts bowing at the highest setting only,also the red led on the a/c button is on and no amount of pressing it will turn it off but at setting 6 when the fan is whining or blowing it turns off any input much appreciated folks.

While the speed of the blower motor is controlled by the Climate Control Module in Auto Climate cars, in the Manual versions there is a resistor pack with five resistors fitted in series. It could have failed It's mounted adjacent to the blower itself and has a grey 6 way connector plug with six wires, all Black with various colour tracers through them.
Hi astromorg thanks for the answer, it's a manual versio I have no auto settings as far as I know, I only got the car yesterday. So the resistor is behind the glove box beside the blower unit is it easily accessible and any idea of where to get a new one

You'll see the resistor for manual air con on there.

You need to take the glovebox out plus the felt trim underneath it, and you will need a torch, its fidley but you can get to it ok, If the motor only works on setting 6 it could be the sign the motor needs replacing too, mine sounded like leaves were spinning round the motor before it blew the resistor! I got mine from ebay, took me about a hour to change both.
thanks for the replies lads i'll take a look at it this week if the weather picks up
