    Angry Heater motor/fan removal

    Hi all,

    for the past couple of days the heater motor/fan has been screaming like a banshe on setting 1,2,& 3 with the natural noise of the fan on 4 being louder then the problem (make sense?).

    The heating system works fine on all settings and heats up fine, however the noise is very annoying and with the weather being as it is and the heaters being used alot.

    Tbh i suspect the problem exsisted when i bought the car however the noise was not there so suspect the dealer i bought it from has/had done something to it to keep it quiet, problem is i bought the car over a month ago and the dealer is being unhelpful, now i doubt it would just pack in that quick but proving he knew is going to be difficult.

    So i was thinking of removing the fan etc and greasing/lubing if possible to shut things up until i can sort something better out.

    Now i know where the fan etc is and have already removed the glovebox.
    On looking a the fan assembly i can see it seems to be in two parts splitting in the middle, now to me it looks like the two parts are held together with 4 torx screws and a couple of clips, and the bottom should then seperate.
    Now i presume the bottom part is the fan assembly as it looks exactly like this...http://www.vauxhallworldparts.com/pa...php?partid=626

    So to end a long post has anyway removed there heater fan, if so am i right re the 4 screws and clips not counting any wiring etc, and if so has anyone had any succes in shutting the fan up with lubing or did they end up replacing.

    Btw i have checked and cleaned the scuttle/pollen filter as i am aware this is probably what caused it to go.

    Sorry for the long post just wanted to try and cover as much as possible.

    Cheers Rob

    Quickest way in to reach in from where the pollon filter lives and drop a little 3 in 1 oil on it in the centre, it will quiet it down for a while.

    Did this on mine and worked a treat. The problem would have been caused by a blocked drain hole and water would have got in. Take the pollon filter out and you can see it clearly.

    Cheers will definately try this first then and save a hell of a lot of messing, will probably replace in the end if it keeps coming back, just dont want to start unscrewing things that arent going to go back, but on looking at the diagram of the part that i linked i would guess i am right re dismantelling.

    Seems if it is this simple to shut it up at least for a short time it is probably likely what the dealer did

    Keep you posted

    Good news m8, saves a bit of hassle, and money. I find that sometimes I get the odd squeak, but a quick blast to 4 and back sorts it out, probably needs a touch more oil.

    Lift the bonnet, remove the rubber seal along the back of the engine bay and you will see on the passenger side there is a section of the scuttle panel which hinges up. Lift to reveal pollen filter.
