    Almost definately need a new blower. This is a common fault on B5's as the brushes on the blower motor wear out, which is why it'll sometimes work/not work.
    It's easily replaced, do a search on ebay for Valeo Blower. The part number you need is 8D2 820 021.
    This is for climate control equipped cars which I imagine your S4 is.
    There was a guy on ebay selling just the brushes, which is actually all you need if you're handy with a soldering iron, but a brand new OEM blower should be about £80 (as opposed to the £300 from Audi).
    This guys got a load for sale:

    Fitting is dead easy, just remove the glovebox and you'll see the blower directly behind it. You have to remove a metal bracket above it which is in the way, then just unplug it and remove the screws and pull the old unit out.

    Yeah mine was intermittant to start with, then it packed up altogether.
    I actually dismantled it and cleaned it up and extended the springs on the brushes. This fixed it but only lasted a month and this was in the summer with black leather seats and no aircon. At the time there was no-one selling OEM units at less then 180. In the end I had to just fork out for a new one.
