Re: Air Vents

Thanks kidneystone. How do you get to the motor behind the steel plate and do you have to set the vents to a certain position before programming?

Re: Air Vents

If i remember right two of the screw that hold that actuator are awkward, but possible to get out. The third one I think i had to use a pair of pliers to get it out because the metal plate was in the way. I think i unscrewed all the way using long nose pliers, it's been a few years since i did it.

No the vents don't have to be in a certain position before programming, the programming sorts it all out.

Bit of an update.... all 3 of mine were snapped off so im glad i followed your advice and ordered 3 of them

On the motor behind the metal plate I ended up drilling a hole in the metal plate that was big enough to fit a 4.5mm socket through which worked well

when it comes to programming is it best to fit 1 actuater at a time and then run the program mode or fit all 3 together then run program?

Re: Air Vents

You need to fit all three before you run the CLIMATE CONTROL SELF-LEARNING PROCEDURE.

Red face Re: Air Vents

Hi all,

the support and guidance on here is amazing

Couple of questions,

the top motor on the left controls the screen vents, (which was broken)

the middle motor controls top, middle and bottom vent direction,

but what controls the temperature for the left side? there's a mention of a 3 connectors on the left side of the heater unit in a previous post on here but i've only managed to find 2,

i can see a motor down the bottom but that's impossible to get to, is it that motor and connector that controls the temperature for the left?

if it is, how on earth do you get to it?

Thanks,

Re: Air Vents

Yep, scrub that, i just read the previous 2 or 3 posts long nose pliers

i can't even see the bottom right bolt, if there's one on the bottom left behind the cable connection its going to be a no go,

Thanks,

Re: Air Vents

Hey bobbob, did you get the other actuator motor off, the one behind the metal framework.

Re: Air Vents

Yeah, all sorted thanks,

It looks as if someone has attempted a messy half soaked repair previously and glued them in but also glued the white core into the black gear,

I've had to drill a hole through the plastic cup section, use a rather wide self-tapping screw to go through this and into the white base and the black plastic gear, then use some resin glue and activator to grip the inside of the Philips screw head and mould to the inside of the hex shape cup section to stop the hex cup from spinning

Had to fix a bodge with a bigger bodge unfortunately, picture attached with the screw without the resin in,

The most difficult part of that was trying to line the key'd parts up on the base with the hex cup part whilst not being able to see them both,

But all is working thanks again

I also figured out the re-calibration differences, mine was press and hold for the left 3 to 0 count down then let go, then the right side goes to the number 2 to say calibration in progress, then once that's finished it will go to 0 for pass or 1 for fail, seems some others may have a different revision where they need to keep it held for 40 seconds,

Re: Air Vents

Good evening,

Can someone please tell me how to get to the actuator behind the metal plate in the picture in post 36.
I have a 2008 Bravo LHD.
I need to get to the actuator that controls the left side temperature mix.

Thanks.

From this point you should be able to access the top 2 screws of the actuator.

Use a small 5.5 wrench to access from side.

Re: Air Vents

Hi,


just got my vent control fixed in the Fiat garage.
The drivers side and windshield was blowing hot air and the inner/outer air circulation was stuck to inner.


They replaced 3 motors and some heating guides.
The funny thing is, that starting and stopping sound from mottors was present for manny years but I didn't know what it was, so it means some things weren't working but I haven't noticed that something was wrong until hot air started to blow.
So I guess this is very common fault on the new bravo but many people don't even know about if cold/hot air control still works.
Anyway the entire dashboard was taken appart (both doors removed as well) but I'm glad the guy who made the repair is kind of a perfectionist with these things and everything on dash seems to be working like it should.


Anyway, just wanted to share that with you guys.
