Heater/Blower Contact Noise...
Friends, Alfa-lovers, countrymen, lend me your ears...
When my a/c fan is on I can sometimes hear a whirring noise - which i'm sure is coming from the blower unit; it specifically sounds like the 'petals' of the fan are very slightly touching something and make faint contact sounds when rotating (especially when turning corners). I'm quite confident of this, as the noise disappears when i turn the fan speed off (it actually only happens at speed setting 1).
My question is, has anyone experienced this?
And can I take apart the blower unit to remedy it?
