Thumbs up DIY: Heater AC Blower Maintenance

The blower fan motor in my Golf started making an annoying squeeking noise on #2 fan setting but would go away if i increased the fan speed to #3. I found this Youtube video on maintaining the blower fan:

The publisher also did a video on fixing the fan resistor for $2:

Thanks for sharing. I'm totally going to do this. I get a odd squeal on mine in the winter.

Lightbulb Some More Points...

I had to do the Fan Maintenance again this fall when my thermo fuse blew, I replaced it with a new one, here are a few additional points that I'd like to add.

1). If you replace the Thermo Fuse make sure you use some sand paper to clean up the contacts before installing the new Thermo Fuse, I measure and pre bend the wires on either end of the Thermo Fuse before wrapping them around the contacts.

2). Carb Cleaner will remove all the lubrication from the oilite bushings. I found that using 5w30 motor oil works well, it just takes longer to let soak into the oilite bushings. I drip the oil at the shaft/bushings point and let soak rotate a few times, I do this a few more times before I let sit over night. I know one of you had a good idea of using a heat gun to heat the fan motor to help the oils soak into the oilite bushings.


3). A few of you are having difficulty with reinstalling the fan so I hope these instructions on removing and reinstalling are of some help. I used a white tire crayon to hilite the Arrows as well as the Lock position for the Fan Housing.
