hi guys.
my air condioner's fan makes some weird noises. sometimes it sounds like there is something in there(sounds like holding something in the blades of a pedastool fan), but not very loud, and other times it almost sounds like its just lagging, but in a loud way.. i dont know how to explain it.
it hasnt been quite as cold since and the pressure hasnt been quite the same. i just want to know exactly what this means because sometimes there is no noise at all. eg.. i was driving yesterday and there was the noise. i hit a bump and it stopped however minutes later, slowly came back.
do i need to buy a new fan for it? or regas it? needing help :|
thanks guys!

Ah mine does the same, it comes and goes. Is it a pain to get to the fan? I wanna clear it out but if it's a complete mongrel I'd rather not bother....

its a pull the heater box out of the car scenario for an e series... which means pulling the dash out and disconnecting the AC system (de-gassing)... Big job unless you know someone with the refrigeration gear and have some time and tools and space handy to pull the dash out...

My fan was on the piss and like a wheel out of balance made funny noises and lacked pressure... Last time I had my dash out I replaced with a good second hand one... Its not perfect but its certainly quieter and better pressure now...

if you stick your hand up behind the dash, sorta behind the glovebox lid and next to the passenger side kick panel, you will be able to clear the leaves out. Just keep in mind that a large huntsman spider that I call harry always lives in there, lol.
