Boxing Heater/Blower Contact Noise...

Friends, Alfa-lovers, countrymen, lend me your ears...

When my blower 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?

Re: Heater/Blower Contact Noise...

Haven't experienced that but the fan is easy to take out to check. It is under the passenger side dash, by removing one bolt and one electrical connector you can then twist the whole fan and then pull it down and out. Need to be a bit of a contortionist to get in the footwell in the first place though, even with the seat right back. Hope that helps.
