Thanks, I know where you mean now, I'd never realized it was a resistor
Do you know what the resistance spec. of a healthy pack would be? I have no
info on any of this in my manual. I've just discovered that a new resistor
pack is nearly £100, so I'm not inclined to replace it without finding out
if it has actually burned out, especially since other potentially suspect
parts (i.e. rad-fan thermo-switch and rad-fan 1st speed relay) are only
about £20 each.
