      Civic blower fan motor making ticking noise

      Removed blower fan today to check if reason of ticking is any kind of debris, but indeed ticking noise coming from motor. Please check this video I recorded. Will I need to change whole fan assembly or this can be repaired? Anyone knows approx cost?

      Probably some dust is stuck in between the fan and the motor which is making the noise . The motor seems ok . Probably you can have it examined by an electrician who does self motor , alternator rewinding . As soon as power is applied the motor starts without any delay . So I do not think there is any bearing issue or motor winding issue . Pulling apart the fan might help .

      Did you try putting some machine or engine oil drops on the joints? Try if lubrication helps. Usually, parts become old and need extra lube so give it a go.

      Yes had tried it. But in fact motor was about to go caput. When mechanic opened this old motor post replacement, could see internal damage and lot of carbon dust.
      I had agreement to exchange this old ticking motor with this mechanic in lieu of other non-ticking (used) motor. (so cash discount). After exchange and replacement when mechanic opened old motor, he said it's almost useless and he was in loss now due to exchange agreement.

      yes, problem is solved now. Replacement motor is completely noise free and powerful. (earlier one had gone weak in rotation power i guess). Total damage to pocket = 1500/-.
      Such used motors are like steal.

      3 years ago i replaced condenser fan motor with similar way used motor, just for 400/- and it's still going strong.
