Hello, iB Chunkyboy.

If 'pics don't work': How about a video instead?

Here. I made this just now specifically because I saw your post.
This is for the 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 model though. I'm unsure if the 2000 version is any different.

Hope that helps you out. Sorry for the poor lightning quality. It went pitch black out here.
Now I have to reinstall it without seeing too much!

Joelnaf Very common for it to do this at low speeds or when breaking turning etc.... just remove the fan like shown above then blow it out with a compressor. Oil up the two copper bearings top and bottom of the fan shaft. Sound will go away.

josephd My fan does the same thing. It does it when in motion, and sitting still. When it gets cold, the low speed(#1)makes noise. If I put it on the second speed it goes away.

Aaron1331 mine does this buy only when braking and on fan speed 2 and 1

grand106 Much appreciated, because I thought I might be doing something wrong (it felt too difficult to be the correct way)
p.s If I dive upside down I then have to repair passenger’s seat afterwards . then to another thread and the story goes on

thanks again , i will try it again soon

sailor I reached up from underneath, primarily by "feel" 'cause I didn't feel like diving upside down under the dash if I didn't have to!

Used a torx bit in a 1/4" socket at the end of a 6" extension (1/4" drive). Handle to break loose, fingers on extension to run in & out.....

Worked fairly easily that way. Do the back one first (hardest to get at), since the others will hold the fan in place while you get the hard one out. put it in last on re-assembly....

grand106 i just want to ask one thing? How on earth did you all manage to squeeze your hand to remove those 3 screws (torx type they are, at least in my focus ii (late 2008 model)

I try using a flexible extension fitted with a torx end with an electric screwdriver but yet again I can’t even see the 2 out of 3 screws yet alone to even consider removing them . (I feel that if I try that –in blind- by feeling with the edge of my fingers most probably the screws should be lost inside the engine’s abyss). i also have Haynes manual to help me but …

elsolo You don't need pics or some written document.

Just look down under the glovebox, it's as straightforward as a job could be.

Three screws to remove glovebox door.
Two plastic push pins to hold the soft trim cover.
Three screws to remove fan motor.
Nothing is hidden, it's all in plain sight.
