Customer Question
terrible noise coming from what...
I have a 2008 Range Rover sport SE, today there is a terrible noise coming from what sounded like the air-conditioner, heater motor in the dash... Started is a light whining noise and then made a terrible low-key loud noise… I turned off the air conditioning and it stopped turned it back on and after a few short minutes it started again so I turned off the air conditioning and it stopped again, then no air cold air, so I turned it off, turned it back on there was cold air but the noise came back so I had to turn it off… Is it the blower motor? I heard that there is a compartment below the motor that catches dirt etc Any ideas, when I said turned off the air conditioning on meaning turning off the entire thing blower included…

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. I see that you have been waiting for over three hours for assistance; whilst RR are not my particular specialty, I have worked on several in the used car shop....Please allow me to assist you. You are very correct on your diagnosis; this sounds very much like a bad bearing on the fan shaft motor, or lock of lubrication. Fixing it yourself would require a replacement fan motor; parts are available form RR dealers (I do not think you will find one at NAPA or PepBoys). Replacement of the fan with no experience here could be difficult, at the very least visit a RR dealer service dept and ask one of the techs for advise before you start....they are usually willing to help out a person in dire need.

Is there and all data info? Diagrams etc.
Auto Mechanic: Classic Car Service, Dealership Svc. Mgr. replied 1 year ago

Sorry, I do not have an All Data subscription. However, if you look under the passenger side of the dash, under the glove box area, you might be able to see the bottom of the heater box. The fan motor fits inside of the heater box. Looking whilst it is making the noise should allow you to see where the noise is loudest. Normally, most heater fan motors are held in by 3 to 4 bolts or screws. Removing them should allow you to remove the fan unit.

I can tell it's the motor... I went to the dealer and bought a new one, but I can't figure out how to access to the old one… Do you know anyone that has access to all data?
Auto Mechanic: Classic Car Service, Dealership Svc. Mgr. replied 1 year ago

Auto Mechanic: AZTechBrian, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Not sure why. The address definitely is valid. I just opened it. I'll make you a new link. If it still won't work, You have to remove the glove box and the trim panel. Then you can easily access the blower motor
