Rattling Heat & AC in 9.2x

Hi Everyone,

The fan in my 2005 Saab 9.2x Linear rattles when I utilize both heat AND air conditioning.

I want to get this fixed up, but I'm not sure which part to buy.

Subaru Parts Dealer Guy is recommending a complete replacement of the motor assembly:

https://parts.subaru.com/p/Subaru__/MOT … FE030.html

That, to me, seems like throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Has anyone else experienced this problem or recommend a specific part to solve this problem?

The motor is functional, it just rattles.

Thanks in advance

Have you pulled the pollen filter and inspected it? Could be full of sticks, pebbles, leaves or a robust mouse nest.

Shit, he probably doesn't have one.  They came without them, so shit probably fell right into the fan smile

This is the route I went with my Aero when it died.

The replacement isn't too complicated or even at all complicated.
