Howdie all!

I've been racking up the miles on the outback and sofar there's been 1 thing bothering me a bit: the fan for the hvac is noisy. It's a bit clicky/squeeky and it gets worse when the fanspeed increases.

so: is this something I can fix? maybe it's just debris in the fan housing, if so is that accesible? Or is it easier to replace the fan?

any help much appreciated!

(oh, it's a 2001 H6 VDC)

nope... bit of a car noob to be fair :) I read there's a bunch of wiring in the way? Guess I'll have a look inside and decide if I have the dealer fix it or do it myself :)

turned out to be a fairly easy job. Getting the fan out was hard because of thewiring loom. with a heat gun I softened the cables and the fan just plopped out. New one in after a bit of heat and bobs your uncle

cheers for all the support gents! my first car fix ever!
