MG MGF Technical - Heater blower control
My heater fan control has stopped working in both the 1 & 2 positions, is it just a variable resistor? is it a known problem?
Thanks for any advice
|This is perhaps the most common failure on the F. There is a resistor pack (3 resistance wires mounted on a block), and you switch more resistance in with the lower switch positions. The pack costs about £25 and is a fairly easy replacement, unless you have air con.|
Go to this site http://www.apttony.co.uk/ and on the left menu you will find "Heater Fan Resistor Pack". This gives instructions on how to change it.
I used this guy, can't recommend him highly enough, nice chunky resistors that will no doubt outlast the car.
|dont worry mate this is a common problem on all rover cars,before you buy check around,ive bought off ebayfor £10 pounds when you send your old resister away.i would reccomend this as doing i yourself is a pain unless you know what you are doing.|
Rothbury and Durham on the same thread, is this for real? I thought I had the only MGF in the north of England? Fancy a meet with the other local F's?
|just tapping into your thread put the heater on yesterday morning and on setting 2 i had a small whiff of burning smell then it went away? |
any thoughts on this... and i hope the above gets your car done...
thank you silver mgf darren jeffery
