Does the fan pull out (I can't see >how), or push into the dash for removal (and if so, how do you reach behind >to get the thing out!). The front cover comes off from the front (which you already figured out), but the sensor itself removes from the rear of the dash. I usually pull out the ACC unit (from the front) & reach inside the dash to pull it out. >2 - why does it vibrate? Is it a problem with the mounting (which I >suspect, because if I jiggle the fan/hold it with a finger I can get it to >stop buzzzzzzzzzing) or the fan? Can it be fixed? Dry bearings? Buildup of dust & fuzz? I usually give it a good cleaning with puffs from a compressed air can, and put a drop of silicone lubricant on the fan bearings. It requires periodic maintenance (I don't know of a permanent fix). Also carefully remove accumulated fuzz from the sensor (it looks like a small, glass-body diode). >3 - If I need a new fan - does anyone know of a cheaper source than my local >Saab dealer? > >Thanks in advance! > >Joe Good luck!
