Attached File  VW Part.JPG   112.14KB   1 downloadsHi All,

 

Trying to replace the little flap motor that pivots the blower vent which sits behind the glove box on a 2009 Tig . I can get to the back of the glove box off ok but I can't access the motor because of this plastic junction box that's next to it. All the videos online have 2 or 3 screws holding this junction box in place but mine hasn't got any screws. Didn't want to muscle it too much in case I break it. It does have what appears to be a little strap thingy on it but after un-clipping it, it still didn't budge.

 

 

I forgot to take a picture of the junction box that's next to the flap motor before I replaced the glove box. Attached is a screen grab of a similar situation.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Hoping someone has had the same experience but if not I'll take the whole thing a part next week and take a photo which might help my explanation a bit better.

 

Cheers...Wojo

Thanks guys Ii was able to change it without moving the module. Only the front screws kept it in place. What I found was the Bluetooth module was jammed between the flap and the bracket...all sorted but it didn't fix my defrost issue.......not air coming through the front defrosting vents .

 

Thanks for the replies guys

With it unjammed reset the module AC and middle vent till the lights flash.. may just be out if sorts from the jam up. At least it wasn't raspberry.
