    Default Bloody heater blower again!

    Hi Guys, So i replaced my resistor so my motor would blow on all 4 speeds, but it has popped again.....

    Is there anything that causes this? Im thinking on the blower being knackered as a couple of times it made a right squeal on starting it up.

    It sounds like the blower is at fault probably partial seized and blowing the resistor pack , fit a new blower motor they are pretty cheap .

    What are they like to fit and are they specific to the VXR? Im assuming not.

    Easy mate. Remove the glove box panel (4 torx screws), unplug loom from motor and remove the black plastic duct (2 push clips) then remove 3 (7 or 8 millimetre) bolts and heater blower should then drop down out of the housing.

    Any corsa D should fit, not vxr specific.

    What's the resistor like to replace? I've just ordered one of Amazon as mine now only works on speed 4... :-( Any trick to making them last longer?

    I never had problems with my resistor, my motor packed up so I replaced that.

    Change the pollen filter while you're at it if you haven't done so recently.
