    Default FIX: Whirring noise alongside steering column

    Luckily the whirring/fan noise near the steering column is a common nuisance and there's a lot of info on the webs.

    I initially thought it was a speaker of some kind that was busted - it sounded like static or interference.

    Turns out it's a fan that sucks air over the climate control regulator - it needs a clean and lube. It took me 20 odd minutes and a few vloekwoorde.

    Here's a great tutorial via LandyZone forum.

    And here are the tools I used - that stubby screwdriver saved the day.

    Hi,

    I had to do mine twice! grease was too thick the first time...

    NL, it's bicycle chain lube - from any bike shop. It's started up again so I think I put on too little...!
