    Hi all, I just thought I would share a problem we have had with my wife's 2008 Freelander 2 GS 2.2 TD4.
    I am sorry if this has been topic extensivly covered but I struggled to find the solution on forums.
    No heater blower but dials show blower is working, I suspected the motor control resistor (but where is it located) having been lead up the wrong path including another forum stating this model does not have a resistor module.
    1, remove glove box
    2, remove plastic blower pipe
    3, remove right hand side kick panel
    4, the resistor unit is located between the bulk head and the pollen filter (right hand side of footwear and about 250mm up near the bulkhead.
    5, unplug the 4 pin connector and try shorting the two thick wires together (pins 1 and 4) lf the motor bursts into life then the resistor unit is the fault, if it does not then the fault is elsewhere.
    6, twist the unit anticlockwise and it will just pull out (I had to use a pair of pliers to do this.
    You could as a temporary measure wire a switch into the shorted link you used to test the motor, this will allow you to be able to turn off the motor when not required I would only do this in an absolute emergency.
    I hope this helps and saves time researching this fault.
