Dead HVAC Blower - 2012 Golf R

The HVAC blower in my 2012 Golf R decided to stop working 2 days ago. It was intermittent at first, now it doesn't seem to work at all.

The lights on the fan control light up and the status updates on the touch screen, so I'm thinking it might be the blower itself. Already checked fuses - none are blown. Do these cars have a blower motor resistor the way older cars had?

Same issue with mine. Just happened today in near triple digit temps. There is a blower motor resistor and that's where I'm going to starts. Seems dealers are charging $188 for it. I found an aftermarket one for $30 that I might give a try.

My 2012 is probably on its way out. It groans louder and louder everytime I use it.

If it's intermittent try the fan relay. Its a well known issue with G35's. Its a 3 prong plug that usually goes on the fusebox (in my case on the back side of the fuse opposite of the AC fuse. It's a quick fix and turned my A/C back into an artic blowing champ.

I actually saw this thread when I started researching this issue. The blower motor resistors for dual climate control are much more than $2. The $2 fix will work for units that have the 1-to-4 fan speed setting.
