my sister gave me her 2000 45 a few months ago. the resistor pack needs replacing as it only works on 3 and 4. The noise and vibrations on these settings is rediculous. any ideas on how to reduce the noise.
just after i posted got fed up and took the fan apart and as u suspected anyway it was full of crap. as was the filter. took the hover to the filter and the inside of the blower. will probably replace the filter soon as well as it looks a little grotty. my blower now purs on setting four instead of making the whole dash vibrate. if i have time i may do a "how to... empty the crap from ure blower and create peace and tranqulity" thred. bodged together the resistor pack with a soldering iron and works on all 4 settings but im not sure it will last long so off to maplin now to get some resistors.
