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 ??
Neil Molloy: Thanks for the video, it helped me and ive replaced the resiter pack and now fan works on all speed settings
newface1362: Thank you very much. That was very helpful
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 (Mk2).
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?
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
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!
Goals1951: I replaced the resistor pack (RP) ok, thanks. (£3:65 on Ebay from China - no problem) 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
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. Thanks
Stephen Davies: had the same problem. restistor failed. fleebay £7 delivered. 10 min job at best. good vid mate.
