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.
