Driver's Side Radiator Fan


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've started to hear a high pitch squeal much like a motor or bearing sound. Its coming from the front Driver's side radiator area and this past weekend I cleaned out all the rads, etc and removed the ducts, condenser, etc so it would be totally cleaned out. I was in there doing other work anyways and once seeing how bad they were I decided to clean them all out thinking it may be debris in the rad fan.

Anyways, its still there, more so when the AC is on as I believe the run at full speed. It comes and goes, so its not making noise full time.

I was thinking of spraying some WD40 into the rad while the car was running (and cold of course) in the hopes that it may lubricate the fan behind, but not sure if that is an intelligent idea.

Any other thoughts from the community? If it is a fan replacement issue, can it be done via the bottom of the car and if so how?

Cheers

Aaron

You can do it without front bumper removal, just remove the plastic inner wheel well, but not that easy to work on. I'm sure for DIY, remove the bumper and clean at the same time all radiators from dirt.

I actually had the bumper off and did all the cleaning work just recently. Would rather not do it again if possible... we'll see how it goes as will be doing some suspension work soon and if its still there I'll removed the liner and replace it that way.

Cheers
