Discovery heater fan

Post by Hiawatha » Fri Jul 15, 2016 10:13 pm

The heater fan in my series 2 Discovery is rumbling when running at anything over one quarter speed . Sounds like a herd of Bison under the dash .
I can probably find one at the wrecking yard to suit but wondered if it is a mammoth job to get at . It's getting to the stage where it is hard to live with .

Sounds to me like the rats have got in, and they have taken something inside with them,
Macadamia nuts often end up in our heater systems.

I have the Genuine work shop manuals, all three volumes if that helps. I also have it on CD.
I always have the fan running in the Disco 2 as they don't seem to get enough fresh air in otherwise. The fan in my old 2001 D2 which travelled 520,000km was getting a little noisy but nothing like you discribe.
While you have the dash out... could you see how difficult it is to change the globes in the climate control unit, as the Prince of Darkness has captured a number of mine with his Deluminator.
