I've got the same problem. Have been thinking about pulling out that part of the dash to look at the fan. Hit a bump the other day and it made a different sound (the pitch of the noise changed momentarily and then went back to its usual annoying sound), like there might be something touching the blades. Hope it's that easy, but probably not. Must consult with the Haynes.white96850turbo said:I know this has been talked about a lot, but my sensor makes sooooo much noise you can hear it over the radio and cant stand it any more. Is there any thing I can do in order to fix the problem? Could I just unplug it?
I have seen several electronics cleaners on the market.white96850turbo said:Thanks for the help guys, I guess I will try to clean out any dust I see, and then oil it. Would it be ok to use electronic parts/connector cleaner (the stuff in the spray can) when I clean it?
Don't disassemble it, no need to. You can oil the motor shaft as it is. Just clean off any dust and lint, then oil.jmyers121 said:I've got the plastic bit off and can see the sensor. How do I pop the sensor out to get to the parts I need to oil? Or, shall try to clean (pressurized air) and oil it while it's in the dash?
What the hell are you talking about???? Why would I just throw $80 out the window if I could spend 10 min and fix the problem myself? Maybe you like to waste your money, but I do not.busaboy said:...and you wouldn't want to do that, 'cause it's $80!! :roll:
