and update on the heater blower...the Rover fairies came last night and magically fixed it for me, after being out of heat for over a week. Amazing.

I also wonder if I can somehow just unbolt the shaft down by the SAS without having to pull the whole column out.
Thinking about it, you need to pull the column to do the steering angle sensor.

If your fans aren't working on you 1990-1994 RRC, it's probably NOT the fans that are faulty. It's probably your blower motor resistor that is shot. Atlantic British makes the ONLY replacement available (other than another suspect used part). I've installed it on my 1991 RRC and have 3 speeds again for both heat and AC. Here's a link to the part.

Installation is funky. If you have kids under 12, their smaller hand size is going to help if you're not taking the dash part or removing the cowl. I didn't take either apart and had to hire the neighbor kid to help reconnect the blower motor resistor's plug inside the dash as my fat hands wouldn't fit through the defroster vent on the top of the dash.

I've got that resistor kit still in the packing. $60 shipped CONUS.

I've got one sitting in the pile of parts to install. Not looking forward to it, and may just disassemble the dash to make it "easier".
