Anyone deal with a squeal from the dash area when the blower motor is running? I'm about to attack with the WD40 but I could use some input. Bob

I have a similar squeeling issue with my blower motor in my B5S4. It seems to be only at low to mid fan speeds. Anyone have any fixes for similar experiences?

Is this the blower located behind the glovebox? Try removing the glovebox and re-lubing the bearings with some lithium greese. I think WD 40 would be a little thin for this application. Just my opinion :cigareta:

Me too! It seems to squeal only when I hit pot holes/bumps or leaning around a turn- I am planning to deal with this annoyance this weekend- I'll let you know how I did!

squeeling heater motor

Did the lithium grease grease work? Seems the cost to replace the motor involve more than just a motor based on the replacement cost.

Well since there were no answers, I had to find out for myself. 5 10mm bolts and the glove box was out. 3 more 10mm screws and the heater motor was out. Unclip the 2 electrical connections for the underdash lights and heater power and there it was. Now the cause. Even though we have an air/pollen filter, ther is an amazing amount of ultra fine dirt and/or carbon from the electrical contacts that makes it thru. If you decide to do this, put newspaper on the floor as the dirt will require more than a vacuum. Some compressed air and a libera application of lithium grease and it is as quite as the proverial "church" .

I just grew up at a time when I had to learn how to fix things. Life has afforded me the opportunity to buy an 05 A6 in addition to the 99 work car and my toy a supercharged Miata but nothing satisfies like saving the cost of a dealer visit with a little old fashioned elbow grease.
