    The other day my blowers started running with the ignition off so I took the cover off and removed the 3 pin connector. There were damp leafs in the cover and filter so I guess I just need to replace the resistor??

    This morning I got in the car it had been raining all night and the car was parked facing down hill. As I reversed about 2 pints of water poured out from under the dash??? Where is this getting in? Is something blocked? If I don't sort this I will need Wellington boots to drive the car.

    TIA

    Craig
