    Hi all,

    My 2009 Seat Altea XL heater A/C unit has suddenly stopped blowing. The fuses look OK, nothing obvious.

    The digital display and all the buttons still work, and give the impression it's working, but the fan isn't switching on.

    I've taken the glovebox out and can see a small whit plastic wheel turning when I push the windscreen / feet / faces directional buttons, but nothing else.

    Any ideas which part n the pic below I need to replace?

    As a follow-up, I fixed this.
    I didn't need to have removed the glove box at all - which is tricky to get back in - just the panel under the passenger footwell, which is held in place by 4 screws.
    There's a small plastic arm on the bottom of the motor casing, that stops it being twisted; make sure it clears the clip and turn anti-clockwise. The motor should simply drop out.
    I unplugged the cable to the resistor and spun the motor by hand a few times, as it was seized. Gave the terminals a brush and reinserted it, and bingo!
    Note that the car hadn't been started in 2 weeks, and this seems to be a reasonably common issue.
    Anyway, all working now.
    Good luck!
