sailor MkIII focus is an almost entirely different design, with limited similarities to prev. versions. No info. of this type transfers to it as the entire HVAC system is different.

MkIII section includes a stickie with link to a manual, but if you think a critter got in I'd start by checking the air filter that it should need to get through.

Info. in that section as well for changing it, located below the glove box area.

A separate thread here in the DIY repair section would be better for more questions, or in the MkIII section where the Warranty questions end up for odd issues.

Thunderfocus2 I have a 2014 ford focus. The fan motor just started making noise. I am sure that a mouse has built a little nest in it. I have removed the glove box and am at a stand still, trying to find and remove the fan so that I can clean it out! Everything that I have found is for older models and the fan is located directly behind the glove box. Any suggestions would help!

pfsantos On my 2009, the three screws to remove the fan were accessible. Nothing else to remove beforehand.

But to get to the bottom bearing, I had a bit of a hard time removing the bottom cover, which has wires attached to the plug, which is part of the bottom cover. So it's easier to drill a hole in the middle of the round part on the cover, lube the bearing, then cover with black electrical tape.

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.

ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

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 passengerís 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....
