We last visited as Christmas approached. Now Thanksgiving is here. I hope you are looking forward to the Holiday.
About the fan in my 2002 Buick, since we talked I have put up with the intermittent performance of the fan for 11 months. It would have its spells of being ornery and not spinning, but for the most part it behaved at a performance level that was tolerable.
Then it stopped and would not restart.
I extracted the fan motor from the dash assembly. While trying to test the fan I was handling, turning, and tipping the fan motor assembly. There was a fine black powder that kept coming out of the assembly. Hmmm?
What was/is the powder?
Does that point to or confirm the cause?
Finally the amout of black powder that would fall out diminished. I reinstalled the fan. It both works and fails. But, I think it works slightly more dependably.
What is your conclusion, please, Eric?
What needs fixed?
