Replaced the fan resistor today. Needed to be a bit double jointed but all done and I have all fan speeds back again. £10 for the resistor and half an hour of being upside down, in a small tight space and much swearing. But done.

Hi,

How to access this part of the car? Is it inside the glove-box? What to dismount to have access to it?

Hi. It’s under neath the plastic panel on the passenger side, in the Uk. Remove the plastic panel held on by standard plastic panel fixings (note 2 of mine snapped when removing, but I had spares!).

Then on the right hand side of the space, you will see an opaque plastic box. Here will be a plug with possibly 5 wires. Un plug it. Then the resistor pack will need to be either unscrewed or un bolted. This is quite tricky and means getting upside down and double jointed!

Once undone the resistor pack will just slide out.

The new resistor pack can then be replaced and then the revers procedure.

As with all electrical work I would suggest that the battery is disconnected before starting work.

Good luck and here are some pictures as o did mine.

Some advice:
- Don't dismount the glove box. It is not necessary. If you decide to dismount it: under no circumstances unscrew the hook for the lock! It is easy to make the mistake because there are 3 screws in the row and only the middle one keeps it.
- No need to be double-jointed. But some caving experience is required. :) The best way to access the part is to lie down on your right side. And your head should be where the passenger has their feet :)
- Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong part. It seems, the diesel version has a different resistor module than the gas Qubo. :(
They all look the same. But there is a difference with the small circular bolts.
- The resistor pack should be easy to dismount and mount again, considering, you will shift it down along its longer axis.

Those are part numbers for both the diesel and gas version of Qubo. They both use the same part. If ordering from ebay you need to be particularly cautious because it seems, sellers don't always know what they sell.

PART NUMBER: S4P27004
OEM NUMBER: 55702407

So, what I wrote above is not true:
It seems, the diesel version has a different resistor module than the gas Qubo. :(
