Inside Heater motor not as powerful?

Postby a2pen » Thu Jan 09, 2014 7:31 pm

Not sure if exhaust to loud but i'm sure my heater motor used to be more powerful.
All different speeds work correctly.
any one ever had any issues with this?

wouldn't affect heater speed but what would is if you haven't got or you have got a pollen filter as they can clog up and reduce air flow and if you haven't got a pollen filter then the chances are that there would be a lot of muck on the fan itself made a huge difference on my last car cleaning the fan blades :wink:

Does yours have a pollen/cabin air filter fitted? If it does it could be blocked reducing the air flow

I have had it 3 years and never even looked for it.
Any one know where the odour/pollen filter is located, behind glovebox?

correct if you open the glove box then squeeze the side to drop the box down and there should be a tab to pull the filter casing out
