Heater Blower Fan Squeak

Heater Blower Fan Squeak

Postby fark on Fri, 13 Jul 2018 8:54 +0000

Just because it annoys the fark out of me, my blower fan is being replaced under warranty. It makes a slight squeal squeaking noise on low speed - so if everything is quiet in the car you can hear it, and if you are like me with OCD with rattles and squeaks you go nuts...

Yeah yeah, I know, turn the tunes up...

Glad to hear a replacement is issued. Mine is also the same and driving me nuts. Did you have to push hard for a replacement mate?

No problem with the dealer at all - even though it didn't really make the noise at the time when i dropped it off. It is due to be changed on the next service - but I don't think I can wait that long :D

TBH, the inside cabin noise is very quiet, so any little rattle or squeak is noticed - but I end up turning the fan off as it hits a nerve for me.

my 2017 model has started doing this between the last service and now. I have my 30,000km service booked for tonight and hope they will replace the unit instead of greasing it as the high pitched bearing screech is annoying AF
