Hi all,

I have a problem with the in-car heater options on my 2003 156 JTD (facelift model). When I turn on the in-car fan I can't seem to switch the fan direction from anything but the 'in your face' option. When I turn the dial clockwise/anti-clockwise the display doesn't scroll through any other options. There is a 'mode' button on the dial which I've seen youtubers use in order to change options but this button is just a blank on my car, it seems, even though 'mode' is still written on it. I've a feeling that I'll need a new pollen filter anyway because the airflow is very low even on full blast but I wouldn't expect that this affects the option switch...?

I'm by no means a mechanic so am fine with the old 'drop it into your mechanic' line. But, just in case it was a quick fix for a layman, I said I'd ask on here. Can't provide a picture or video if that would help.

Thanks all,

P

The middle dial rotates to increase decrease air flow. Below the dial 2 buttons change the direction of the flow. Are these the buttons that do nothing?

That's not the setup on my car anyway. The middle dial increases/decreases air flow. Beside this there is a right-most dial which changes the direction of the flow. When I turn the dial clockwise or anti-clockwise the direction doesn't change. Even on the display, it stays as the 'in your face' position. Probably an issue with the switch would you reckon? i.e. the dial.

By the way, I meant to say "CAN provide a picture or video if that would help". Bloody typo. No issues posting one tomorrow.
