    Does anyone have the instructions for the removal of the heater fan motor?

    Don't have any instructions for removal but I'd imagine it's a big, long winded job.

    Whats the reason you need to remove it ?

    The motor is very noisy, sounds unbalanced if that make sense?

    I can't remember if you remove the pollen filter if you can see the inside part of the motor. If you can, there maybe some debri in there.

    Take the pollen filter out may be small leaves have got trapped inside which are circulating . once the filter is out if you can open all door and get a high pressure blast of compressed air through the pollen filter housing.

    It may get that debris out . Then turn on the fans and see if you have any noise.

    Removed the filter and gave it a good blast and still the same, had a quick look and it's going to be a very easy job to removed the motor, so if my daughter will let me should be a Saturday morning job!

    We'll fitted the fan without any problem and took 10 minutes, one problem the new unit blades are a different angle and does not push air out the vents? Could I have been sent a European version as they will be pushing air from the left and not the right?
