    My heater blower on my A3 01 plate has started making a noisy rattle...the faster the blower the louder the noise

    It sounds horrible, any idea what it could be? And is it expensive to fix??

    I had the same problem with my heater. It turned out to be a foam plate that had fallen in there and was catching on the fan.


    I managed to reach it from under the bonnet and pull it out.

    Funny you should say that, ive noticed some foam in the footwell passenger side underneath the glove box....could that be it?

    I'll check tomorrow, when you say from under the bonnet? how do you mean? There doesnt look much room to go digging under the bonnet, let alone near to the glovebox area
