Problems / It's doing it on purpose !
« on: April 03, 2018, 10:25:10 AM »
Heater blower from time to time just wouldn't work  all the controls lit up but no heat , so my mechanic changed the FS Resistor  thought it cured the problem but yesterday nothing all day  and it was freezing  outside   seems to pick the coldest days to stop  like on purpose , is the next step to remove the entire dash and replace the blower  or anyone got any tips
  thanks   Colin ..

 Called into my tyre centre  to try out there new alignment machine   although all was good   the rear nuts for adjusting the suspension were seized  the guy tried to free them but no go , 
Should i keep spraying them with penetrating oil for a while then try them again  or get a bit of heat at them
