Your Bostson Audi dealers don't have 'em? Ye gads. They cost about 
$1.50, and I know you can get 'em from Carlsen Audi. Besides getting 
a replacement you need to consider why the fuse was blown in the 
first place. Hopefully just fatigue involved here, but it's prudent 
not to try to operate the fan --even temporarily--until a fuse is in 
place. Some people have installed resettable fuses in place of the 
OEM fusible link.
