I'd be upset if I didn't get a loaner for any warranty work indeed had a loaner for a squeaky rear end - and are you sure it wasn't the dealer saying that then backtracking ?

Re: Air Conditioning Problem fan

Post by Burty » Fri Nov 24, 2017 5:21 pm

Hi I am a new member. I recently purchased a 2015 DS. I have on two occasions had no interior climate control fan. First time I returned to Dealership. I was told it was sorted. But sadly 3 weeks on it has happened again. This time I called LR assistance. Very good service. Engineer removed battery cover then freed the circulation fan with a long bar. He said I need the fan replacing. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, did the Dealership resolve the issue successfully? Thanks in advance. 18k on the clock.

Fan needs replacing under warranty and weather sealing needs to be upgraded.
Problem is rain getting behind engine scuttle panel on to fan motor causing corrosion in motor.
Had exactly the same on mine after being parked at airport for two weeks.

Heater Failure - cabin fan

Post by County » Tue Nov 28, 2017 4:04 pm

Had a heater failure this morning frosty and 2 deg.
Called LR assist who came a did quick fix by rotating fan blade by hand, with ignition off, then switch on again works but needs new motor.
If your fan fails a quick fix is as attached, hope it helps someone. :idea:

The first time this happened to me, car went to the dealer - new fan apparently. Just happened again this weekend on Sat at 1 pm and it’s freezing! No dealer, considered LR Assistance then found this thread........fixed it in 2 minutes. But it’s a 2 year old car that cost over 40K new.........should I have to put up with this ‘quality’?....

Morning, stealer rang me Thursday to cancel booking, this Monday, for fan fix as cannot currently get parts. They will let me know when parts are available.
If it happen again it will be LR assist. Mine is also over 2 years old so need to get it fixed now.

Had the same problem today. Air con would hardly blow at all even on max fan speed and we were cooking in the car. Turn the air con off and then turned the fan back up to max. All of a sudden we had good air flow again and when I switched air con back on it was working properly again. Did they identify your problem?
