Hi all, went for a drive today and wanted a little cool air from the vents and noticed the blower fan has stopped working. Pretty sure it was OK yesterday. Touch screen controls seem to be working fine and the small rear seat fans are working. Anyway the blower fuse isn't listed in the handbook and the glove box fuse box is a pig to look into, anyone know what fuse number I should look for, before I have to try and test them all. Thanks.

Hi all, here's an update of what I found so far. There doesn't seem much info out there for the B78 so far. So anyway going on previous posts for the previous model I took a chance that the blower was in about the same place, and as it happens it is, next to the steering column drivers side. Trim was not too bad to remove to find the blower, anyway removed the plug and tested for voltage and variable volts found at plug when operating touch screen, so removed blower ( 1 bolt at a twist out of casing) and found water had got inside during a couple of really downpours. Fan turned Ok by hand, but brushed appeared stuck when spring removed, so gave it a quick strip down and clean and fortunately once put back inside car is working fine.
One point, unlike the previous model the motor resistor control module is not located on the fan, this would have been my next place to test, but as such didn't need to, haven't found it yet

The cause of the water ingress is probably due to blocked drains at each side of the scuttle at the base of the windscreen. You need to loosen or remove the wheel arch liner on each side of the car where you will find a rubber spout in the corner of the scuttle, this will be blocked with leaves and debris, unblock them both and watch for the water coming out.

Managed to get to the spouts, after a fight with a rather tight TORX screw and yes lots of water came out. Thanks.
