306 heater motor bearing - scfc_151
my 306 heater motor is making a funny high pitched noise during cold weather. I think its the motor bearing but i cant be sure. I just wondered how to access the motor so i could try lubricating the bearing,

Its a 2001 model and i took the cover from the passenger side footwell out (below the glovebox) to see if thers anything obvious but i dont want to dismantle anything before i know where it is

autodata says between 10 and 20 minutes to remove the motor, so nip down halfords in the morning and see if there is an open pewgot book ;-)

wouldnt fancy doing a matrix though 4+ hours

Get your head under passenger footwell, remove the kick panel under glovebox. Bingo, if I recall there are 3 screws holding motor in situ.

job done

removed the panel 4 screws and a bit of spray sorted it!

it did look a bit dry and touch wood it hasn't made a peep since. I left it plugged in a put it on full speed, i didnt realise how powerful it is....its like a harrier jet taking off!
