Heater Fan/Motor leaf and debris removal

First things first, locate the position of the heater fan and surrounding ducting. <br />
<br />
The heater fan/blower and air flow ducting are directly under the glove box on the passenger side as shown (no need to remove glove box) <br />

Re: leaf and debris removal

This all looks like a fairly simple operation, the difficulty is now trying to find the tool to remove the 5.5 hex screw.

Re: leaf and debris removal

Thanks for the great guide. I was having problems with my fan and wondered how to remove it. Thought I'd need to take it in.

After checking the guide fan was removed in no time - oiled the bearings and cleaned the brushes and its good for another 10000 miles

Cheers for the guide.

Any tips for getting the plastic duct back, it doesn't seem to want to go back in I can sort of see where it lines up with the white/clear plastic next to the fan but cannot seem to get the screw hole lined up.

Re: leaf and debris removal

Ensure that the two vet holes point downwards and slot in the uptilt portion on the right first. This should allow you to align and screw it back in. Try and see if any loose wirings is blocking the path.

Re: leaf and debris removal

Hey by the way anyone knows where to oil the motor? mine's making a very very soft click on every rotation. removed the whole blower from the casing (just two screws at the rear casing) but not sure where to oil..

Re: leaf and debris removal

Excellent guide, apart from the pain of doing it upside down - this was easy and now mine is working again.
Not sure what was stopping it though.

I cannot get the resistor pack out - as there is no screw I am thinking that some bugger has glued it in.

Re: leaf and debris removal

And it went off again, turns out to be the plug that goes into the motor itself.
At some point I will make this have a better connection.

Re: leaf and debris removal

Last night I whipped the fan out, soldered thick wires onto the posts and fitted a plug-able 15A choc block onto it, refitted it all snipping off the original connector.

Now my fan works well.

Re: leaf and debris removal

I spoke too soon, its gone dodgy again.

If I push the screws that hold the fan into the casing it comes on again, but I cant drive like that so have whipped it out again and have cleaned the commutator, a little better but still flakey.

Looking at the motor as it is in operation I'm only getting a spark on one side so I think the brushes need replacing.
Now just waiting for the soldering iron to jump out of its safe hiding place before I can remove one and measure it correctly - plenty on ebay that will do the job.

Buying a new blower will be the very last resort!

Re: leaf and debris removal

Dear Friends.

I am pleased to learn "Heater Fan/Motor leaf and debris removal" guide. This is a very informative guide for almost all auto-geeks. I think the detail is pertaining to the PUNTO car.

Is it the same way applicable to Fiat Palio 1.2 petrol car? I am advised that in Palio 1.2 Petrol case, the whole dash-board is required to be removed to assess the cabin blower fan. Is it true?

Please guide me for Fiat Palio 1.2 petrol car to do this job.
