    That's what I was thinking but me hitting the middle of the dash is no where near the blower. Are there any common electrical faults with our heaters?

    i suspect the bashing is just jolting the motor enough to get it spinning.

    Only bashed it out of anger the 1st time and realised it kick started. It's not ideal but it'll do for now until I pop to the scrappy.

    cheers mate

    I had loose connections on a ribbon in the control unit itself when I got mine, it's been fine since I renewed the connections bit of a fiddley job to get right again though
