Removing Heater blower resistor electrical connectors

Post by Panamajack »

Good afternoon experts on all things Citroen - I am in the process of exchanging the heater blower resistor and have a simple problem im a little embarrassed to ask as a question

I have hunted high and low and not found anything that helps me understand how we remove the electrical connectors from the resistor to allow me to place them on the new one

We have a 2013 DS3 and it takes a standard resistor which is used across many models - im guessing its so easy that people don't think they have to mention it ' but im stumped '

It appears a screwdriver down the side might release the tab but I have had no success to date with this approach - I've attached a couple of photos of rhe connector

Any advise or guidance appreciated
Thank you

Just unclip the 2 plastic tabs at each end and then use a quarter turn to remove. It looks like you need to release the central tab first before the end ones and this looks like you need to use a thin flat blade to lever the lug forward on the central tab first.

Thank you very much - all sorted and the new unit now working perfectly - appreciate your advice around that middle lug - with that lifted i was able to maneuver the electric connector up and out :)

Thanks again
