Blower not working properly on a Seicento SX 899cc 1999?

My girlfriend says the blower on our Seicento SX 1999 899cc Is not working properly, IE: The heat comes out only through the windscreen vent? I can't see the car at the moment... I have my suspicions she has'nt pushed the correct buttons but she assures me she has.Has anyone any experiance of this kinda problem?

Re: Blower not working properly on a Seicento SX 899cc 1999?

I'm wouldn't be 100% sure, but if the blower (at all speeds) is working but only through the windscreen vents then this would obviously inidcate that the interior fan is fine.

I would check for either a blockage in the system which could be simple or difficult depending where the blockage is. IT may be a case of removing the centre interior vents/ un clipping and checking, or from under the bonnet remove the black material cover to the right rear of the engine bay (the big one) and inspect the fan/flumes closer.

Other than this if it will not blow through the interior vents then the controller may be damaged which would involve removing the dashboard cover and inspecting further the control levers etc.

Sorry to be vague, but this is all I can say atm.

It could well be that the mechanism (I'm guessing it's just a simple wire) which "tells" the fan which vents to blow through has come undone.

As above, I can't see it being the blower motor itself.
