    • The blower motor adapter is a bundle of three wires located on the left side.

    • While the vehicle's ignition is on, push and pull gently on the wire connection.

    • If the blower motor turns on, you have identified the problem and following this guide will help you fix it

    • If the fan does not turn on, the damage may not be fixable without purchasing new parts.

    • For your safety do not grasp any wires you can not see. Do not attempt to grasp any wires that are not covered in insulation and/or electrical tape.

    • Turn off the ignition on the vehicle and proceed with the following steps.

    • There are two screws holding the adapter in place. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove both screws in order to remove and gain access to the adapter.

    • The fault typically occurs at the connection between the three wires and the adapter box.

    • Observe the damage and decide if electrical tape will be enough to hold the wires in place.

    • If so, using electrical tape, wrap the wires tightly until they are securely in place.

    • Replacement parts are available for purchase if the damage is beyond your repair capabilities.

Thanks so much for this. My heater fan was faltering when I most need the Airco to work in the European heatwave of 2022. I had a feeling it might be a loose connection because it would come alive when banging on the dashboard or hitting a bump in the road.

Followed these instructions and found a break in the connection between wire and connector in one of the wires of the adaptor. How this came to be, is a mystery but I managed to open the little female metal pin connector at the end of the wire, reattach it with fiddling and some tape en reassembled the thing. Works perfect for now. Must say the job was not too comfortable due to the strange twisting weird posture you need to reach the %#*@ thing!
