    The heater fan on my 205 has just packed up. I've checked the fuse and
    that's ok. I assume the next thing to check is the fan itself. Could
    anyone tell me where it is located and if it can be easily removed?
    Thanks

    Steve,

    Search Google under "205 GRD heater fan not working" for the answer.

    I'm not familiar with the 205 but there have been numerous threads in the
    past on these fans in most models. A common problem is a poor connection
    to the fan which may well be located up under the glove box. Making a new
    connection , possibly solder on, might just fix your problem.
    Try a search in the group archive for your model.

    Good Luck

    There is a transistor based speed controller.

    It is housed within the blower assemble (in order to cool its heat
    sink). The fan is over the passenger foot well & accessible from below.

    If it is the speed controller that is at fault, then most people just
    get another from a scrap yard. If you prefer though & you are familiar
    with electronics, then there was some discussion of the type of
    transistor involved a little while ago.

    In a right hand drive car, the blower is over the passenger foot well.

    There is sometimes, but not always, a piece of carpet trim - held in
    place by an aluminium tab.

    Wires run from the blower motor connections to the controller. The
    controller is held in by several screws. Undo the screws & pull the
    controller down & out.

    I found this in the archives of this NG.
    I also had a problem with my heater fan and after dismantling the foot
    well carpet 3 screws are securing the fan unit and after cleaning the
    grounding on the transistor, everything was working again and after 2
    years
    it still is
