Re: Air Vents

Yes it looks as if we have had the same culprit. The plastic cogs on mine turn freely and if i move them by hand i can get air to the screen. My issue is i am unable to get air hot or cold to any of the positions.
Next step is to take the motor off which is driving and hopefully it's the same part as your.
Your guide has been invaluable thanks for taking the time to list it.

Don't forget that there are three on that side. I would advise you to change them all if it is the same problem as mine, that way you won't have to strip it all down again when the next one breaks, like I had to.


Run the reset procedure when you have finished.

Re: Air Vents

Well here is a pic of the offending part, it looks as if they are plastic welded together rather than be one moulding. Obviously the weld is not up to the job why why why Mr. Italian engineer didn't you design a single mould for this it would have been much stronger. Wonder if the replacement part is?

Yes that's the little blighter that broke on mine (one of two that broke actually). The replacement part is identical unfortunately. Hope it all works when you fit the new one.

This is the self learn procedure for the climate control. May help.

CLIMATE CONTROL SELF-LEARNING PROCEDURE

The AUTO and MONO buttons must be pressed simultaneously within 40 seconds of the ignition being turned to the ON position in order to active this procedure.

A few seconds later a figure will appear on the display (in place of the driver's side set temperature) which will count down to indicate the time remaining before the start of the procedure. At the same time (i.e. whilst the count down is taking place) the previous self-learning status is signalled on the passenger temperature setting:

'1' flashes if the previous self-learning procedure failed.
'0' indicates that the previous self-learning procedure was successful.

This procedure is not carried out if at least one of the above mentioned buttons is released whilst the figure on the left hand side is not zero (this is designed to check the outcome of the previous self-learning procedure).

Exiting the procedure zeroes the 40 second counting period from when the ignition is switched ON, to allow the procedure to be repeated without having to switch the ignition OFF.

Each time a new control unit is fitted, the flap actuator learning test must be carried out using the diagnostic equipment and the unit must be personalized through programming.

I can't remember exactly but I think it was January or February 2014 and everything has worked fine since then.

Re: Air Vents

The temperature control motors are on the right side of the climate control unit. You will need to take off a few parts from there to.

ATTENTION!!!

The motors can be installed in 2 positions : the correct position and 180 degrees out.
If you install it wrong possition the climate control will report a error! and it will stop working correctly.

You can find the correct way by using a 9v battery to rotate the motor and at the same time use a multimeter to check that the value does not go through zero.

You could also just take a gamble that it is installed correctly 50% chance for each motor. Then check with MES that there are no errors after directing air flow to all possible positions and heat ranges.

Re: Air Vents

Just to say thanks to everybody on here who made a conribution on this thread it has been a great aid for me to get the job done.
Took the car for a 500 mile round trip to my son's place in the last few days and everything has been fine.

Sorry to revive an old thread but my car seems to have this issue....
I have ordered the parts which i will receive tomorrow. Once these parts are fitted, how do you set the actuators up?
