My front interior fan is a bit squeaky on pos 1 (slow)where is it located?
I wanna squirt some silicon spray in it to shut it up, maybe a squirt down the intake will do it?

any advise?
Thanks

I was thinking of squirting up the intake with it switched on, to draw it to the fan.The intake will be outside somewhere

Watch it doesn't cause a fire - WD 40 is very inflammable - I've used it to start my barbecue!

Best place to spray it would be to remove the pollen filter and spray in there!

The only downside to WD40 is the smell, I used to have a Rover 827 Coupe and they are always having fan motor problems and the way to quiten the squeal is to use a spray but it does leave a lasting ordour in the car.

Pollen filters are usually located in a plastic housing in the passenger foot well usually a box with a couple of clips or two fixing screws holding the housing together

Hi as was earlier reported WD 40 is FLAMMMABLE!! as long as the fan motor is not sparking it might be ok. Have seen an engine on fire when someone squirted WD 40 onto igntion leads while they were arcing', "bonfire"!!

I've got a noisy leaf stuck in my heater as well. Working on the principle that leaves are biodegradeable, I've calculated that in roughly 9.5 years it will have disintegrated enough to give me a quiet fan again.


In the mean time just turn the radio up.

Arrrrrrrrrgh it's sooo annoying isn't it?
I have to have Dire Straits on full blast so that I can't hear it.
DON'T use WD40 - I used it like a flame thrower to ignite my November 5th bonfire, I don't think there's a more flammable spray!
If anyone finds where to spray a silicon lubricant please tell the rest of us...
