Good Morning All,

I have been reading the forum for a while and thought I'd join as I'm having a few challenges with our 2014 500L.

We've owned the car from new and we have been happy with the car until...

Blower: This has been working like a charm until last week it has stopped working completely. The lights are working, but there is no air coming through the vents at all. I've checked the fuse and it's fine. Are there any tips or links so that I can trouble shoot the issue?

Gear Selection: Over the past couple of months we have experienced an intermittent issue with selecting Reverse, First, Third & Fifth. This can happen when you're at the start of a journey, when you're on a long drive or when you're trying to park. Sometimes you can just drop a gear, rev and change up and that will clear the "block". But it can be an issue when you're halfway around a round-about... Again, any tips or guidance on this.

Thanks in advance
