Hi All,

As the title suggests I'm wondering about rebuilding the heater fan motor. Does anyone know if that is even possible?

At the moment if I turn on the fan (slow or fast) the ignition light glows. Whilst recognising that a popular reason for that might be that the diode pack in the alternator is partially damaged  I am wondering the motor may be drawing more current. I see that the headlights etc don't cause the same glow.

This is likely to be part of the programme of work in the merry festive freezing garage.

when  you turn anything remotely electrical on in a Beta I find there is a strong chance the ignition light will glow dimly, is it just that or worse?  When I had a (flavia) 2000HF I had these issues and found that it was due to earthing problems on the instrument panel

I'd check what is actually going on with a multimeter before pulling the motor out. I wouldn't have thought that the motor is particularly easy to rebuild?
