Fan motor noise

The wife mentioned that the aircon fan in our 63 plate 500 has just started making a weird noise..

I drove it yesterday and it sounds rediculous. It is like a single prop aircraft when the climate control is trying to cool the car quickly. The noise is like a growly brrrrrrrr lol.

I tried with the air con on and off and it sounds the same either way. When it is blowing at a slow speed it sounds fine.

I asked at fiat and they told me that it would be a dashboard out job. They didn't seen convinced that they knew though.

Is there anything I can check myself before I have to have the car torn down at gear expense!!

Re: Fan motor noise

Could it be that something has got stuck in it. It is dash out to get to unfortunately. Leave well alone as even once the dash is out it’s a pain I believe. Expensive job unless you’re doing it yourself.

Re: Fan motor noise

If it's the flap door fault and you love the car and having climate control, have it repaired at 4 figures. Except technician on here repaired his own car for about 1/5th of the cost and it didn't last. I'd put the money towards something like this instead.
