I have had my 99 Range Rover 4.0 since new and have now determined the left blend motor is defective, although when I opened it up, it looked normal inside (the left side only blows cold air). The flap can be moved easily by hand. Instead of replacing all three motors, I opted to order only one from from an independent Land Rover specialist and they sent me a Valeo motor which looks the same, but only has two wires (brown and yellow) with a connector. The box says Land Rover on it and shows the logo. The wiring is also way shorter than the original and would never reach to the switch. I am thinking I got the wrong part, as the original blend motors are of course five wire, but the dealer I got the replacement from is not very helpful. Can anyone shed any light on this? I am an amateur self taught mechanic and I hate going to the dealer. I do have the factory manuals for it, but I am finding that this website is a much better resource in many cases. Thanks to everyone for that.
