Heater fan stopped working after hearing clicking noise under dash

Need to change fan motor, it may have been blocked by something, but the motor has burnt out. This is a difficult job, and the wiring near the fan may also be burnt, more difficult. I would sell the car.

VW 2001 Passet- Squeaks very badly over bumps in

I don't.
I have spent many hours chasing elusive car noises over the last four decades, mostly with success.
Most of those noises were troublesome because they were intermittent and could not be duplicated in the workshop.

I think one of the most difficult to trace was the most horrible noisy vibration that would seem to run right through the car sometimes. It was as if some serious mechanical disaster was happening. The cause when I found it (by accident) was a front mudguard that rested on the front indicator lamp instead of having a small clearance between them.

When a noise can be duplicated in the workshop by bouncing or rocking, with the aid of a mechanics stethoscope and sensitive fingers, locating the general area of a squeak is a mere formality though pinpointing can take a little longer.
Track rod ends and ball joints can cause very loud squeaks as can some of the rubber bushes.

Replacing parts in the vague hope of curing a noise is expensive desperation. Unless you gave specific instructions to have those items replaced your money should be refunded. I suggest you change your repairer as any repairer that replaces stuff without prior justification shouldn't be in business.
