    Air-con recharge led to heater fan disintegrating???

    Hi Guys, appreciate your help or comments on the following!

    I put my 1999 Estate into the local garage for an air-con recharge during the week. Everything heating/air-con wise was ok, except it wasn't as cold as it could be.

    I popped the car round the garage, and went to pick it up a couple of hours later. "All done" he said, commenting that the fan is very noisy. Not sure what he meant, as it was fine on all settings before it went in!

    But getting into the car and trying the fan, what a noise! Sounded like a tumble drier all out of shape. Back into the office, and he said I thought you'd be back! said to leave it an hour and he'd take a look.

    On going back, seems the fan had disintegrated, all in bits and pieces. Ive ordered another second hand one off Ebay to replace.

    Is the recharge and fan going related in any way?? Seems just bad luck really.

    Is the fan easy to remove? Ive taken out the glove box and I can see it, but is it easy??

    Thanks!

    Re gassing wouldn't have effected it.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
