Subject: Re: Ticking sound near front dash?


I've got the same symptom on my '88 900S. I mentioned it to the service manager where I take my car and he seemed familiar with the problem but said that a fix would involve removing the entire dash and several hundreds of dollars and that I was probably better off living with it. My impression is that the fan blade assembly has translated along it's spindle and the blades are now in contact with it's cage or something nearby. If I turn the vents to off (so the fan turns off) the sound stops. If I run the fan beyond it's slowest speed the ticking gets faster but then stops as if the fan has blown itself away from the contact it was making. This works but then I have more noise from the air blowing. Sometimes, if I run the fan for a bit at high speed and then back off to the lowest speed setting, it will run quiet for a while (minutes or days). It's ugly but I live with it along with my inoperational central locking inconvienience. - Marc In article <6ioo4c$ifu7nopsamquik.com>#1/1, "ebash" <ebashnopsamon.quik.com> wrote: > > I hear a fast paced ticking sound near the top of the front dash, when I > turn on the heat or vents? 87 900S auto.
