Noisy Fan In The Heater

Post by e21Keith » Thu Jul 11, 2019 3:21 pm

High pitched squealing from the blower, well it has been unused since 2001 and the heater is one of the few items I haven't removed from car during the rebuild!

I'm thinking it needs a squirt of WD40 on the bearings most likely, but how to get to it?

It is located near the firewall in the same area the wiper mechanism is in. Remove the 2 screws in the gutter and 4 bolts on the cover itself and you can easily get to it. Usually some lube fixes it for quite a while.

Yes, easy to reach, and lube has worked very successfully to me either
