    Does anyone know which fan is pictured, I think this one is the heater fan or is it also the one for blowing the heated air, vent air and air conditioning.

    This fan blows the air through the vents when using the aircon & heater
    Often called an A/C Blower motor
    It's located below the glovebox and is a simple job to replace it

    Thanks Matt and does anyone know if they wear out like as in not blowing as fast as they should.
    Just had the AC serviced and although nice and cold the air doesn't seem to be blasting out.
    We really only use the AC when the dogs are in and we can't remember how forceful the air was 7 years ago.

    Like any motor, electric or other, they do wear out.
    It may just need a clean out.

    Does the fan vary speed according to the position of the speed control switch or remain constant at one speed only?

    Yep fan still work works on all settings but just seems weaker than I thought it was last summer.
    Interesting read Oska, Pity we need to cut a hole to clean out the fins. I wonder if the latter models have a cover to remove to make this job easier.
    That evaporator thing that blocks up would anyone have a picture of the unit as I'd like to see the part before cutting.
    I see the fans are $255 for genuine new old Holden stock and about $65 for the fan resistor. I'll replace these first and then see if the evaporator fins things need cleaning.

    Are you having the same problem, when just using the heater and NOT the a/c?

    Heater, nope never had the heater on all winter just doesn't get cold enough out here.
    I drive with the front windows down and the fan on the second setting.
    I'm heading out tomorrow so will test the heater, fan and air cond and see if there's any difference.
