Right its time to give the RS2 a bit of a birthday. This will include cambelt/water pump etc. Im also wanting to replace the heat matrix (not leaking but not blowing hot) which I think the RHD part number is: 894819031A
I also want to get my heater fan speeds working again, at the moment only the fastest speed works on the fan. Any ideas what needs to be replaced here?

Do they have a resistor pack on heater fan?

Pretty sure the resistors are what slows the fan down, therefore if full speed going and nothing else is, probably resistor related?

Interesting reading here about a thermal fuse on resistor pack: http://www.s2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43802

I just soldered a New Thermal Fuse on My Resistor pack and I got all fan speeds back in the S2.

was a fairly cheap exercise too.. bought a 5 pack of the suckers from RS Components

Sweet. Where is RS Components? NZ or off shore?

Both - they have an NZ office, but ship from all over the world. Lots of electrickry type googies.

Just got a 400A fuse and holder from them for my Touran battery relocation  8)
