hi all,

just discovered a grinding noise this evening from e engine bay.

when i on the aircon lever to 1 or 2, there is no sound as the fan will not turn.

but once i on the a/c, the grinding noise from the fan will come.

anyone knows what is the fan for? radiator fan or condenser fan?

thanks alot.

driving a swift here.

Maybe something has got into e fan compartment n rubbing on e blades?

Seldom i hear fan motor spoil especially only 5 year car.

U can try to dismantle n remove whatever inside or send to ac ws to check.
