Thanks Graham,

On the S4 it is actually a large old fashioned wire wound resistor but
I presume the value would be similar

I'll see what Maplin have which would do the job

Valve radio restorers may be a source of wire-wound resistors. Try

I'm actually trying a resistor from a Mk2 Golf, for no other reason than
I had one. It actually has three resistor taps = three speeds, I'll
probably use the fastest (no resistance) and the slowest settings. On
the basis of having a 'defrost' position and a 'keep things warm, but
not get deafened by the fan' position.

I've tried it and it works. I'm pretty sure most ww resistors from most
cars would work.

I bought my resistor originally from http://www.gsfcarparts.com/
