    It started today, and it stops when you push in the "air recirculation"
    button. Happens with engine off and ignition on. I gather from the net
    the problem is the air control flap gearbox has stripped. But how do you
    get to it?

    From under the bonnet and immediately under the windscreen I can get to
    the intake and remove the pollen filter (very dirty) and see down the
    intake past the flap to the (constantly?) turning fan. But how do I get
    to the stripped gear?

    There are nuts either side of the intake, but do these drop the whole
    fan unit inside? Car is a 95 turbo diesel with aircon ... which works
    but puts a drag on the engine.

    Thanks for all assistance.
