My fan was making a weird noise for a few months now which disappeared when the fan is off and over the weekend stopped working completely, i put the fan on full via the.climate control dashboard and it still pushes out no air.

Checked fuse 40 for the blower, its a 40amp fuse, seemed to be fine but I havent replaced it. Vagcom scan showed fresh air blower V2 failure.


Bought a unit off ebay which was stated working, plugged it in and it still doesnt work...? Im stuck now as to what to do? I dont really like driving the car as its unsafe with the windscreen all fogged up and cold with the window down


Advise appreciated.
 
Check the fan spins freely mine seized after 3 months of not driving the car

i bought a new one off ebay and that doesnt seem to work either :/

Can you check the connection with a multi meter to test whether you have power going to the motor ?

I don't have a multimeter but I will try and borrow one/source one.

I'm going to go and buy some new fuses in a last ditch attempt, otherwise I'm a bit screwed and might have have to take it to a specialist / auto electrician to get fixed :/
 
what age is your car? do you have the resister bolted to the fan unit? if so the resister unit fails, they are £302 plus VAT from TPS, there was a seller on ebay doing pattern ones for £70, in the space of 6 weeks i had to replace 6 units (on 6 different cars)
 
I bought a new fan motor with resistor on ebay, it DIDN'T work! So I tried changing the resistor pack by transferring it from my original motor to the ebay one, and it now works fine.
