Re: 80Q Blower motor noise

Sounds very similar to the blower in my '90 Coupe before it had itself for
lunch. Repair at the dealer (too damn cold, not enough time, etc) was about
'90 Coupe Quattro

This sounds like the same noise my '89 100Q makes. The heat has
to have been running for a while (30-60 minutes), then it starts
making the chirping/whining/rubbing noise like crickets when I
accelerate or go up a hill. When I decelerate, it usually stops.
I suspect this is the blower fan itself eating its bearings.
There have been several articles on the list about fixing this,
but I've been too distracted to look at it yet.
