    Hi Folks,
    I've got a Peugeot 306 Meridian, so it's one of the late style 306s (also,
    with air con).
    My heater fan works but has just developed an annoying noise - sounds like
    something is rubbing against it or a bearing has died.
    Can anyone advise roughly how to to get to the fan assembly ?
    Is it a complete dashboard-apart jobbie that's going to cost hundreds of
    pounds for a dealer to get to ?

    Another question - I need to replace one of the two radiator fans. How
    difficult is that to access ? I've got as far as checking the fan relays
    once before so I know how to get that far by taking trim off the front.

    Many thanks,

    - Steve

    Have not done the job myself, but you can get to the heater blower from
    inder the glove compartment. The trim is just clipped in place. To get more
    access, also remove the glove compartment. The fan is held in with 3 screws.
    Chances are that a drop of oil on the bearings will give the fan a new lease
    of life.

    Hey, great, thanks for the advice Brian.
    I did have a sneaky peek at the glove compartment - it kinda feels like the
    opening "drawer" should be easily removable, but curiously even a moderate
    amount of force didn't remove it. I'll have a look underneath as you
    suggest.

    Regards,

    - Steve
