    We have a 1995 Fiat Ducato Mobilvetta. On the first day of our holiday last week the cab blowers worked fine, then the next day nothing. Any ideas what the problem could be and how to mend. Have done lots of googling but cannot find anything obvious to guide us!
    Thanks for replies

    Because of the situation of the blower intake it collects all the crap in creation. If its had a broken windscreen in the past all the bits of glass go down the demisters and eventually jam the motor. Its a common problem on older Fiats. You were lucky to get one with a heater that actually did anything other than make a noise.

    If you're lucky it might be a blown fuse otherwise I suspect a new motor is needed.

    Fans still not working but alarm is!?

    Thanks for the replies.
    We checked the fuse, it was burnt out and so replaced but fans still not working. Rather strangely our alarm system stopped working just after the fans and started to work again after we replaced the fuse:Eeek:
    Where abouts is the motor located and how easy is it to change (well hubby to change that is :Wink:)
    Thanks

    its usually buried right under the dashboard and may require bits of dashboard to be removed.
    it will be an awkward job :Sad:
    never done one so not 100% sure but, may involve draining the engine coolant to remove the heater motor.
