Re: Xf Fan Noise

Easy job. If it's the fan it's probably hitting the radiator shroud. Just unbolt the shroud and remove it. If noise doesn't go away, it's possible a water pump problem and fan clutch problem

Must be loud if you can hear it above the "huge doof doof"

Re: Xf Fan Noise

same as EA from memory, not easy, although the gregorys would like you to believe you can just remove the left side of dash apart and pull it out from the front basically, mine would not come out the way they reckon, so pulled everything out instead.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: Xf Fan Noise

Might be worth pulling the fanswitch out of the front of the heater box and checking for leaves stuck in it. Had same problem with mine making a hell of a racket.
