Hello everyone,

The blower motor on my 1994 Metro 1.1S seems to be dead. I checked the fuse - it was blown so I replaced it but after that, trying to operate the blower motor merely dimmed the ignition lights and then blew the new fuse.

Could it be a seized motor and if so, is it easy to remove?

Many thanks,

David

Can you get to the motor easily? I have a 1996 Rover 100 and I can easily get my hand in and turn the turbine. I say ”turn” it, because it stops dead as soon as I take my hand away, which suggests I ought to lubricate the bearings. Nevertheless, the blower motor works perfectly at present. Can you turn yours at all?

Its a long time ago but my Metros, more than I care to remember, had the blower mounted under the bonnet and dead easy to remove. Take it off lubricate the bearings if its seized and see if that cures it. If the fan spins and it still blows the fuse, there is a huge resistor by the motor under a metal cover which may well have shorted out after 25 years or so....
