Just push the fan on till its as far as it can possibly go, then put the retaining clip on, all done, no wobbles, if it does, you really have issues.

It can only go one way on, there is a flatspot alignment.

thanks for that, i want to get it right the first time because the old fan blade was tough to get off, i am worried that if i stuff it up i will have to bust my new fan blade to get it off again. Have you done it before??

Yes, I have pulled them apart many times, had my dash out at least 5 or 6 times, really seat it on, put the clip on, spin it around, if you are really that paranoid, use the battery connect power and see if it keeps you happy.

have you noticed that the fan blades are really hard to take off the fan motor? so I push it in as far as it can go and put the clip on tight. If i push it in really far, won't the back of the fan blade rub on the heater box??

Yes they are real pain to pry off, put on as far back as you think is good, the shaft should be level with the middle when its on, mine have been done that way no noise.

you have been more lucky then me, this is the second time i have had a go at it, the first time i didn't get any wobbles but the fan was hitting somthing and making a clattering noise, i couldn't see what it was hitting so i bit the bullet and took it out again, I still can't figure out what it was hitting so I think that it had a very minor wobble in it and was bumping the side of the heater box

I'll try and put it in a bit further this time. I supose i could have pushed it in further the first time. If i push it in to far will the back of the fan blade rub against the heater box? Or is there somthing to stop it from going in to far?

if you look at the back of the blade, i thought it had a liitle bit of plastic to stop it going too far back.
