Blower squeak! Bearings or Bushings? Can it be greased?

Blower on air handler just started squeaking. Without pulling it I don't know wheather or not it can be greased. So, do I have one ready to go back in and if so where can I get a motor for it, or can it be greased? It is winter so I don't want to mess with this thing long. Thanks! D. Hobbs, Ky

Most elec. fan motors can not be oiled , try holding the blower assembly with the fan running to see if that stops the noise , if it does not you need to replace the evap. fan motor and if the blower wheel is dirty clean it , if there is alot of rust on it replace it as well. Good luck.

Sounds like it could possibly be the upper or lower control arm bushings squeaking. There may possibly be a grease fitting on the control arm bushings, if so, have them greased. In fact get a complete grease job from a qualified mechanic. If the squeak stops then you know what is wrong. Then make sure you keep your care properly greased. Usually every time you change your oil or at least twice yearly.

My front in squeeks an creeks when i hit a low spot or bump. I have had in the shop 3 times> I bought an extended warranty. I am bought ready to give up.


Front end squeaks are usually caused by rubber suspension parts. The most common source are the sway bar bushings. Nest would be the control arm bushings. You can spray the bushings with penetrating oil to see if the squeak stops. This would only be a temporary fix. Do the sway bar bushings first. Spray them down really good, and drive the car for a couple of days. If the squeak goes away, you will know you need to replace the bushings. Do the same thing to the control arm bushings. If you replace any of the bushings, use a high performance neoprene bushing, and use the special lube available before installation. The sway bar bushings will be an easy fix. The control arm bushings will require special equipment, and will need to be done in a shop.

My 2006 Chrysler Sebring touring suspension recently started squeaking after my winter tires were installed.what could be the cause of this?


the tire might be rubbing on the strut assembly but i betting its just cold grease when it gets cold the grease gets thick and the rubber bushings in the suspension get stiff making squeaking noises i would take it to a oil changing place and have them grease the chassis that should help.

Squeak and rubbing on lt side drivers side tire can move and squeaks


I'd lean toward bushings of some sort. Inspect the control arm bushings for signs of cracking, and check the sway bar endlink bushings for wear and tear. Both of these parts are going to be worked harder on uneven roads than they will on a smooth freeway, and are likely candidates for causing your problems. A third possibility would be worn strut mounts, but I'd look at the control arm and swaybar bushings first.

Consistent Squeaking Noise


The fuser unit, [near the paper exit] which heat-sets [fuses] the toner onto the paper, has bearings (bushings) that are screaming for high-temperature grease. Open it, and apply some common sewing machine oil onto the bushings. If the noise stops, you will need to repeat this every 2-3 months or disassemble the fuser roller and apply high-temperature grease.
