russmwHi,This is also a job I've got to look at and the dash is pretty much the only part of the car I haven't removed. I did try via the fresh air intake in the scuttle panel but no matter how much I tried to convince the motor to come out it was having none of it, it did however feel as though there wasn't much holding it back.I plan on removing the dash as I also need to refit the dash cap so its 100% snug and understand its not a massively difficult job. No idea if the fan is still available.thanks
vitesseIn my experience over the years it is usually those oilite bushes that dry up causing a heavy starting load & plus screeches.Perhaps a good dose of something like GT85 sprayed in would reach the bottom bearing but wouldn't harm anything else in its path-use an extension probe from small bore silicone rubber,maybe.

Waylanderjust for a guide the fan motor is still shown with a price in PET2 so might well be available321 819 021 Fan Motor £162.73 Inc vAt
CarreraRSROn early fans the only way of getting them out is dash off, heater box out, split in half, lubricate and put all back together. A days work in anyones books. I have read stories of going in from the top of the heater box from the engine bay, melting plastics to remove the fan motor and then reinstalling with copious amounts of glues/plastics etc. I did mine a few years ago by doing the former. Put all the plastics in the dishwasher at a low heat, washed all the debris out. The foams that seal the internal flap had deteriorated so used new neoprene foam to reseal. Hopefully it will last another 40yrs.
Waylander£162 for a fan motor is dam cheap by Porsche standards, if they can charge £300 for a clutch slave cylinder, or £3200,00 for a 964 C4 brake accumulator, which I fixed for £70
