Hello chaps,

I've been reading this forum for a long time and found good advice here.
But not for this question yet.
I am curious if any of you experienced that heating/ventilation system blows air towards all the places (windshield, feet, front) all the time, regardless of the position of the air direction turn knob?

My C3 is the facelift model, from 2006 with manual air conditioning. 1.4 HDI.

Hi lcsongor, did you get anywhere with the heater/blower problem?

I would start by removing and substituting the heater control panel, as there are some electronics in there and it will also reveal some of the mechanical workings. There are quite a few Citroen C3 heater control panels on ebay, but if you get one, make sure its for the same fuel engine as yours.

There is some help in this topic for getting access to and removing the heater control panel.
