My heater started not coming on, mostly in the evening, until I'd already started my journey home. Understandably that was a bit of a nuisance to say the least, especially at this time of year! Then a bump would set it working. I knew that the heater itself was working; I could feel the meagre heat coming through after a few miles Eventually it just stopped blowing altogether.
I enquired on AnOther forum and it's an easyish fix, providing that you don't mind kneeling in the ice for a wee while
At the bottom of the driver's (right hand) side of the centre dash there is a wee plastic shroud covering an access point. If you open that and feel inside there are a load of wires attached to a connector box. In all likelihood there is a bad connection and wiggling the wires should start the blower working. I was told to pull the connection box down and make a fresh connection, but Mr SG went in with a can of WD40 and that seems to have done the trick.
It might be a temporary repair, but it's a good one in minus goodness knows what temperatures! I was driving with a hot water bottle on my lap!!!
Do as I say, not as I do
