frown Smoke

Hey, Well my EBII is getting worse. I took it for a drive down the road, and smoke started to fill the cabin. Its definatly not coming from the engine, or driveline. Its coming from the vents outside the windscreen, but also is somehow getting in the cabin, also through the vents? so, ive established that its probbaly electrical, anyone got any ideas as to what could be the problem? Thanks.

Re: Smoke

It's probably leaves built up in the heater core or around the fan blower. Try taking the fan speed controller out of the blower and getting all the leaves and crap out. It's located under the dash in tha passenger's side footwell.

Re: Smoke

Well, ive been told by a few people now that it could be leaves built up in the heater core. So i went to have a look but couldnt work out how to get to it. I pulled the whole glovebox and surround out, but I still dont know how to get to the core. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Smoke

theres 2 screws that allow you to remove the fan speed controller. hard to explain but it might be behind a wiring loom. try driving with the fan off and see if you get smoke. its not likely to be leaves aroudn the heater core smouldering, they wouldnt get hot enough... more likely the fan speed controller.

Re: Smoke

Yep, sounds like leaves and crap on the resistors which control the fan speed.
Take out the glove box and start looking around behind the loom which is towards the bottom. Unplug the loom, and remove the 2 screws which hold the resistor mount, pull it out and you should have a mounting block with 3 resistors and a whole pile of crap stuck to it. Clean it, and get a vac to suck out all the crap which will be in the hole where you pulled it out.

Rick.

Re: Smoke

The question has to be what does this smoke smell like? Is it oil smoke?, electrical smoke?, burning leaves smoke? - surely you can tell from the smell.
