The wire numbers are on the other side of the plug, the side that has the wires.

See A and B are the two rows, starting at 1.

You can match your heater control panel wiring plug to the correct one shown in your haynes manual to see what is connected to the connectors that got too hot.

Hi,

I managed to track down the correct part and I fitted it into the car today.

I've packed everything back into the bay and I would hate to take all out again.

So I'm going to chance it and see how I get on.

I'm hoping that it was a one off fault and that it may never happen again.

If it does I'll have to investigate the matter further and find another part.

I managed to get the part for £35 but the hardest part was finding it.

I also couldn't believe that I managed to get it back in with such ease. Those cable connectors are very fiddly and I have big hands :lol:
