Hi,

I have attached the instructions to remove the heater fan in your Vito - note that on a RHD UK vehicle the fan is on the passenger side! Remove the underdash trim to gain access on the passenger side:

Remove heater blower

Hi JF,

From memory you simply need to unclip the black plastic trim on the underside of the passengers dash to gain access to the screws that holds the motor in - have you removed the trim to have a look from the underside?

i have had a quick look under there but cant seem to see much, i can see the motor if i take the louver vent out,( the one that can blow air to the side window)but obviously i would need more space to work in to be able to get to the motor

Hi,

It is tucked up there but am sure you can access it from the underside.
I have never had to take the glovebox out & without looking think it is moulded to the whole dashboard & not even removable! I am at home at the moment & unable to physically see one but cannot even find instructions for removing the glovebox!

Best regards, Paul
