    Internal heating/cooling fan problem?

    Im currently finding that my internal fan is cutting out & or sounding like its struggling to rotate (my air con & heating are fine)

    Then sometimes, it runs perfectly in complete silence, as if there were never a problem

    Does anyone know why this would be or know how to rectify this please?

    Im unsure how to get at the mechanism & wonder if its something I could sort myself?

    Will it be expensive etc..

    Many thanks in advance for any light shed on this

    I bought a new fan for reliablity as i heard of people who changed the bushes and it failed again. the fan is about £92 of ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VW-AUDI-HEATER...QQcmdZViewItem
    You just have to drop out the glove box. its quite tricky to get the fan out round the airbag. I had to losen some of the brackets off to get it out. bit of a pain to do.

    if you email the guy he will give you a number where you can get the brushes

    its not to hard to do them there are at the very end on both sides of the motor under a little clip
