Ian Skatonic: Hi, I have a 1.6 basic Zafira (53 plate), the heater works but the blower
is very poor, it does increase slightly from 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and so on, but
even on 4 it is very poor. Do i need to replace the resistor pack thingmy
too ? !! taaaa
steve gooding: i have an issue with mine heater only works on number four so i replaced
the resistor and was working for a bout an hour then stopped again then
started car again today and working again ? also fan a bit noisey so im
now thinking is it the blower motor or the HEATER CONTROL PANEL UNIT ??
Jason Jardine: HEY GUYS! NEED YOUR URGENT HELP! CAN OBJECTS FALL DOWN THERE FROM THE GLOVE
BOX AND IF SO WILL THEY BE HARMED!???? My tablet was in there and, well,
now isn't, i know that it is likely it has fallen down there but is it
possible it could have fallen out the car. It's a 2004 vectra by the way
newface1362: Thank you very much. That was very helpful
Wildgeese73: I have a clattering sound for about 2 seconds when I set the temperature to
full, same thing when I turn it down to coolest setting. It's ok in the
middle, just fully on or off. Any ideas?
paulw1647: Your a fu@kin star mate ya just saved me a small fortune gettin a mechanic
to look at it , just took the old resistor pack out myself n ordered one
off ebay for £7 lol thanks 👍
Mark Phillips: My god I love the internet. I've just replaced both of these parts. Off
eBay, the rheostat was £7 and a used flap actuator was £10. An hour of
tinkering around and everything's working! A word of warning - watch your
head with the corner that's left after taking the glove box out! At the
same time I managed to get the window switches working again just by
cleaning the contacts (read from another forum). The garage was quoting
£95 for the rheostat replacement alone!
ZP Valhalla: Does anyone know on mine the fan is on full all the time even when I take
out the ignition keys the fan is still blowing so I have removed the fuse
could my fault still be the RP thank you
Neil Molloy: Thanks for the video, it helped me and ive replaced the resiter pack and
now fan works on all speed settings
Goals1951: I replaced the resistor pack (RP) ok, thanks. (£3:65 on Ebay from China -
For anybody else visiting this, you only have to remove the glove
compartment for the RP.
The RP is tricky to find. It is up in the top right hand corner of the foot
well just above the carpet line, so you have to get your head down and look
up. You can see the back of the white plastic wire connector. This plugs
into the resistor pack which is hidden away in a hole.
This was on a 2007 Vectra C
paulw1647: Oh any chance you could do a vid on how to refill your aircon on a vauxhall
vectra mate lol
Chris Thompson: Hi I've have a vectra c but on mine the selector motor seems to have packed
up. The one that makes it go from window screen to front vents. Do you no
were the motor is for this?
algirdunia1: Can you tell me how it's call that black computer not the heater resistor.
Stephen Davies: had the same problem. restistor failed. fleebay £7 delivered. 10 min job at
best. good vid mate.
BASHMENTDAVE1VEE10: My heater isn't blowing atall does this mean I still need R pack thanks
Callum Whyborne: I have a corsa c and the heaters also only work on full, im guessing this
would also be down to the resistor pack being faulty?
Mohammed Qadeer: Thnx very helpful
Mohammed Qadeer: Thnx very helpful
derwenthotel: Bloody brill!, ive gotta replace the heater resistor pack on mine and didnt
know where it went. Dont suppose youve ever sorted out the worm gears in
the motor that make a clicking noise when the ignition is first turned on?
Im gonna do a video of me replacing the throttle body this week.
Ray gil: I Have a Vectra C 04 estate and your Video was a great help for changing
the resistor fitted new £10.00 works a treat Thanks 10/10. Now I need to
change my Intake manifold on my o4 Vectra C sri.
