    Fan speed resistor change T5

    My low speeds on the air con went to lunch the other week so decided to replace it , ordered one from ebay seller in Victoria $11.99 . Arrived today and whilst there was only crap on TV decided to change it at 10.50PM tonight , ten minutes later and all fixed . Only dumb part is VW using a 5.5 mm headed screw to retain the resistor to the fan housing , pleeeeease VW either 5mm or 6mm would make so much more sense after all its just a gorified self tapper screw going into plastic . For anyone contemplating the job is a piece of cake to do {unlike some of VW parts changing processes } remove 3 torx screws from the under dash trim pass side remove end of dash cap at side remove 2 torx screws holding second dash trim at outer end and remove two plastic trims where a pass airbag would be , unclip the facing panel and just pull it out from top you can see the resistor quite clearly through the gap remove the plug and remove the two dumb sized screws and then refit new part and put panels back job done .

    Thanks Sunny.
    Been thinking about doing mine for a while.
    Have you changed a window switch?
    Got one on its last legs too.

    No switches as yet I am afraid , but they do come out fairly easy from the trim once the trim is removed I have seen them in place when fixing the door locks .
