    2013 Caddy Maxi Startline blower fan problem

    The blower in my van makes a ticking sound similar to sticking a piece of paper or a card into a fan, like a repetetive noise of something catching.

    It only does this on the 1 and 2 settings, but it is extremely loud. 3 and 4 are equally loud, so there is no 'quiet' setting. I am worried about fan damage or wear, as a quick google showed a few related posts on this forum.

    The noise stops when in recirculate mode. The noise also stops if you wiggle the fan, but comes back after recirculate mode has been turned on and off.

    Any help would be muchly appreciated

    The air intake is a coarse screen and debris can get it, you can pull the motor out and remove debris.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
