Re: T30 Blower Fan (noises and relay replacement)


Hello again from Jimbr.
I did not want to bother any of you however I have the same blower fan bearing issue on my 2007 T30 STS. page 8 gave a photo bucket i366 .I was not able to open this. Basically I do not wish to be a pain. Do I have to remove the ECU to gain access for the removal of the blower fan motor assembly ? I do not want to disturb anything more than necessary. Following some thoughts on this topic I removed the lower glovebox and bottom panel the removed a plastic cover which enabled me to see the fan blade assembly it is definitely a bearing problem. There were no leaves and twigs in there . Again I apologise for rehashing this long thread, I just don't want to make any mistakes or spend more time than necessary crawling about on me knees under the dash board . I am over 70'and find this stuff painfull, I just want to get in done.
Kind regards Jimbr

Hi Jimbr,

Firstly please do not worry about replying to an old thread. This is the best way as it keeps all questions and information on a topic in the same place making it easier to find by any member at a later date...just like you did emoticon

Secondly, I had no problem accessing the pic you mentioned on page 8 so please try again by clicking on the pic and it should show up in another tab. It does say to remove the ECM after loosening the bracket.

Re: T30 Blower Fan (noises and relay replacement)


Thank you for your reply Kev.
I changed tablets and yes it opens on a Android tablet. I was using an old Ipad 2 I guess it is a bit obsolete like me. However I did not find it very helpful. I have ordered another motor. When it comes I will have a go then do up the old motor. As I have gotten older I have lost all my self confidence. When I was younger I would have just got stuck into it. I have had some achievement today at least I now know it is the fan bearings.
Kind Regards Jimbr

Just remember what it says in the last note "directions and pics are for LHD with RHD models being symetrically opposite".
So the ECM will be on the left of the motor and you will remove the motor to the left and then down.

Re:


Thanks Kev.
I can't say I am looking forward to doing it . I used to do all my own mechanical stuff but now I have lost all my confidence.
If I can get another unit from the wreckers for a low price I might buy it. Not thinking of fitting it but I can at least look at it and be confident where all the fixings are and maybe pull that one apart and fit the new bearings leaving my car intact while doing it.
Kind regards Jim

Re:


Hello again from Jim . I know this won't get much approval.I bought a complete assembly from the wreckers with the intention of fitting a new motor then doing a quick swap over. However the one I bought I removed the bottom section and cleaned up the housing and removed the cowl and gave it a good clean. I cannot detect any sideways movement on the motor shaft even when the cowl was refitted there is very slight end float I powered it up on the bench and it runs smoothly I have tipped it upside down and sideways tapping it as well and there are no noises coming from the motor I think the motor may have been replaced at some point because there was evidence of it been apart before. So tomorrow I am going to try and fit this as it is .I will use my upper housing mated to this bottom section. The top housing section has a rod missing from it so that is why Inwill mate my upper housing . Do any rods have to be disconnected when removing this unit. I am still very nervous about doing this. I guess I am concerned about setting off the air bag . I never use to think twice about doing jobs on cars now I am over 70'it worries me.
Kind Regards Jim (Jimbr )

Howdy Jim.
I too am now in my 70s and would also be hesitant as you are to tackle such tasks. I'm sure that someone on this forum will be able to provide the right advice to help alleviate some of your concerns. I have the T31 so can't comment on your T30 issues but if I had fan blower noises I would probably attempt to have a go to fix myself...of course with guidance from fellow forum members and previous posts.
I do have a slight RHS CV joint shudder on my T31 and am still considering having a go and replacing that myself. There are many good posts on "how to do it" but like you, I am still a bit hesitant. Any way, only a slight shudder at take off but smooth the rest of the time.

Cheers and good luck with your blowe fan replacement.

Re: T30 Blower Fan (noises and relay replacement)


Hello,Dave .
Thank you for your reply. Well I bit the bullet today and replaced the blower motor. The one I got from the wreckers seemed to be ok . I have ordered another motor and resistor for the speed control but they did not arrive in my impatient time zone. What a pig of a job of an old codger to tackle . Oldcodgertitus setting in. Not technically difficult just painfully awarkwrd I found getting off the connectors difficult to release the locking tabs with my hands which are not very strong and I have the shakes very badly in my hands the rest of me is ok just my hands . I found replacing the middle screw which is on the right hand side almost impossible battled with it for more than an hour . I did eventually get it in . The other annoying bit was I got it all in but trapped the wiring for the motor and the speed control resistors behind the unit and had to take it all out again. Some of you as indicated on the forum that you were done and finished in about 3 hours he took me 7 hours . Anyway the result is it is good , can now turn to the right without a horrible noise coming out of the fan housing . I am sure if I have to do it a second time down the track it will be quicker, not that I ever want to comptemplate that. I guess if you are in the senior age group and can afford to have it replaced by someone it might be a consideration if you can find someone honest that you can trust. Did I enjoy this, definitely NOT! I was worried about setting off the Passanger side air bag however it survived . I hope this may help someone else.
Kind Regards Jim Braddock. Jimbr
