Default Ford Fiesta MK6 (Blower Problem)

Afternoon,

New to this forum and really need some help,

I have a Ford Feista Mk6 (02 Plate) and about a week ago my heater stopped working on 1, 2, 3, however works on 4 - and it blows hot and cold!

I dont have a cigarette lighter and the air con light comes on when it is set to number 4.

Now I have done some research on this site and the heater pack resistor seems to get the blame! However, where would I find that on MK 6?

Thanks guys and girls for your help

Thanks for the reply....so I am right in my diagnoses?

Do you know if there is photographs explaining how to replace or shall I get a Haynes manual?

Seems like quite a common problem.

I had the same problem and have just changed the resistor as suggested and it now works.
Very easy, 10 mins and no special tools.

Heres how.

Tools.. screwdriver and torx driver

remove lower plastic below steering wheel, 5 screws..

Crawl into the footwell and look up to the middle of the car, clutch pedal is a little in the way..


Click the image to open in full size.

Look for the resistor (It's the hole as I had already taken it out before taking a photo!)
and undo the 2 torx screws(careful not to lose them).
Click the image to open in full size.

pull the resistor down..

and change it over.

I got mine off eBay for cheaper than a second hand part !!

The heater in my MK6 2003 fiesta as of yesterday only works on position 4 and makes a horrible rumbling noise. I'm assuming the resistor pack and the motor need changing.

Now thinking it would be straight forward I've located the resistor pack easily, but the motor doesn't match the picture above and I can't see how to get to it, any ideas?

Yes, you are correct!

The motor rumbling you may be able to sort out with some lubrication.

Is your motor, the passenger side of the dash?

Cold air out the heater is could be a sign that the coolant was not taking heat off the engine properly. Make sure the water pump is working fine. Heater control can be bad or your heater cable come off on the heater box.

Hmm, looking again at the photos you can see the mounting posts for the motor are still present in the moulding for my car, but no motor is attached. So they've moved it, but where to!

They aren't my symptoms, the heater motor only works in position 4 (bad resistor pack) and the motor sounds horrible when it is running.

It was blowing the correct temp air yesterday before it packed up. Initially it only worked in position 4, then after 30 mins on full, it went horribly noisy.

Does anyone have the Haynes manual for the mk6 they could take a look and see if it mentions 2 different positions the heater motor could be in?

I have a feeling mine is buried somewhere in the dash...

Fixed

Haynes manual £3
New resistor pack £14
Scrap blower motor £26

Access to the motor was from the passenger footwell after removing the glovebox.

How easy was it to get out once you found it? Did the Haynes manual help you massively?

I've had a look before how you get it out, but really couldn't work it out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve

I have sold the car now and the manual went with it!

But the blower motor was easy with the manual, maybe 20 mins work. From what I remember, the glove box comes out, the fuse panel needs to be unbolted and moved out the way, there is a plastic hose to the vents that is easily removed and then the motor is unscrewed and manouvered out.

Thumbs up

I also wanted to say thanks to UKTony135 too. Got the old pack out and got a new one on the way from ebay. This is the 3rd one that's failed and garages have charged me a damn site more that £8.99 to fix it! With it being the 3rd one (in 3 years) I am wondering if there is something causing it. Perhaps my fan motor? I know I have an electrical faults somewhere, but several mechanics have told me that the only fault they can find is that the dashboard light won't go out.

Thanks again.
