Default Blower resistor - suppliers?

Hi guys,

Needing another heater resistor for the B4, part number is 8D2 959 263 which I believe came from a cabby. Struggling to find one for sale, new or used. Bought a Febi one on ebay but its a completely different shape despite saying it fits my car

Has anyone got one to sell or know where I can get a new one?

Cheers

Hi

Yes Mike only speed 4. That would be great if it’s repairable!

Steve let me know on the part number, spares are handy.

Cheers

So I've got 2. 1 is from a cabriolet but has blown it's thermal fuse and has been bridged with wire. Part No. 8D2 959 263.

2nd is from a coupe but different first digits. 894 959 263. Fully working. Not sure if these make a difference? They look identical.

First part code likely superseded the later part and that's about it.

Suitable resistor is likely to be found in late 80's and 90's VAG B series cars and golfs and B3/B4 passats, as B3 audi heater is derived from mk2 golf heater and thereafter they changed a little until at least late nineties - for example interior fan is the same in B3, B4 and early B5, of both brands.

An RA17T is what you need,about 80p from marlins,although they have gone bust so you will probably find Farnell or RS components will have them
