It's in the dash, straight in front of you, underneath the seat heater switches. It looks like this: With care, you should be able to get at it by gently prising out the heater switches & surrounding panels. The sensor grille pops off from the front, but the main body has to be squeezed / pushed back. If you can't manage, give it a blast of compressed air & a squirt of silicon oil etc, that normally cures it for a couple of thousand miles ;) mdb wrote: > No, I'm not sure that the problem is in the blower.
