Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Heater Blower *FIXED*

+1 for this advice.

I did a similar job on mine this weekend. Removing the motor was tricky but the instructions in the Haynes manual made sense in the end.

I didn't have the tools to fully strip the motor so I sprayed some WD40 on each bush. I then used a pair of needle nosed pliers on the braided wire to gently pull each bush backwards and forwards a dozen times or so.

The bush guide on one side was corroded so I guess that bush was seized in there (that one felt stiff to start with) but the WD40 and exercise did the trick. It hasn't missed a beat in the 50 miles since.

Next job is to clear the scuttle drains (or whatever you guys call them) and stop the corrosion problem at source.
