FSU Repair

I know that the Final Stage Unit is a common failure point for the aircon fan. I recently had the same classic symptoms just as we are having a spell of hot weather in the UK. Anyway the kids seemed to enjoy going down country lanes with the windows wide open...

Just to say I managed to fix the problem by repairing the FSU following this guidance Final Stage Resistor fix DIY -

Getting the unit out on an RHD car was no real issue at all and I simply did as the guide suggested and resoldered the components to the PCB.

Replaced it back into the car and it now works fine. So in all took about an hour and cost £0! :)

Just thought I'd share this
