    Blower fan not working

    The only way I can get my blower fan to work (either in a/c, heater) is to "jump start" it by giving a few whacks under the glovebox area. Once the fan is up and running, everything works ok, however, once the fan speed is on I or II, it will slowly grind to a halt again until I have to "jump start" it again. Also, the problem seems to get worse as the days get warmer.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem and how do i go about fixing it ?I'm thinking the problem is due to a sticky/warped blower fan and all I need to do is replace it, if this is the case any advice on how to remove the fan is most welcome.

    I would suspect that the brushes/commutator in the motor are knackered and giving it a kick is helping them connect
