Heater motor / and or resistor - little advice please.
Hi all, new on here so bear with me lol
Just bought a mk1 A3 "P" registered, 18" Rs6's, angel eye headlights... blah blah..
Wanted to ask some advice on the Heater motor, where is it situated, is it under the dash behind the glovebox? Mines packed up this morning, it was working on 4 but nothing now... :sadlike:
I have been told its quite common on the older VW's and Audi's that the heater motor packs up, my old mans did last year, but i f***ed if im paying what he paid for VW to fix it on his passat, so Im going to attempt myself. I have replaced the heater motor in a civic, and im not to bad at DIY mechanics, just after some good advice, a how to or anything else that might help me out.
I priced up a second hand motor and resistor pack for £49 + P&P is that an ok price, or shoudl i just get a new one for the extra £30 or so.....
While im here, dipstick pipe/tube, has become brittle and the last owner has forced the dipstick in and its cracked the tube, is it a quick fix, or a bit more hard work to replace... My local garage said about £40 to remove and fit the new one with the part (as long as the metal end does not need to be removed from the sump area - he said lol)
Any advice would be great - Many thanks
