The resistor pack issue is when 1,2 and 3 don't work and only 4 does. That is due to how it's wired (I've done it on my mk1)

That sounds more like a possible dodgy switch to me :L

Not so - the resisitor pack can fail at other combinations!!!

Had a look at resistor pack to day there is no burning seeable on th eoutside, it looks like it has already been replaced once, judging by the dodgy wireing held together with tape!! could the resistor still go and there be to markings of burning?

If it goes, it normally burns out so there would most likely be burning marks. The best bet would be to take it out and put a multimeter across it.

I doubt it's resistor pack, as the resistor pack is bypassed for the number 4 setting, which he's having trouble with. I'd get the wiring sorted at the resistor pack, and also check the switch. To test the switch, remove the heater control assy from the dash, remove the connector on the back. Get a good heavy piece of wire with the ends exposed. Find out which one's the power wire, then jump the power wire to the other 3 wires, if it blows on all 4 different jumpers, then it's defo the switch.

My fan now only works on position 4 also, this was after I used the fan on number 3 at the weekend and got a nice burning smell. Are the parts in Mirez's article readily available from Ford?.
