On my 2009 S40 I get a vibration in the steering wheel when the fan is on high. I know it's from the fan because I can feel it when the engine is off.

Would this be a sign that the fan motor is going? Is there anything basic I could check first?

Think I've read that it a fan motor can be a pain to replace...fortunately I'm still under warranty but I hope that the dealer knows enough to put things back together properly.

have you upgraded your trans mount to stiffer? if so, feeling vibes when aircon is on is expected. i don't recall if i felt them before i did the stiffer mount.

Car is completely stock and original...none of the mounts have been replaced. Just noticed the problem when the fan was blasting on a hot day (temp near 100). Have not noticed any vibration in the past but I did have a minor deer strike in December so who knows what could have been knocked out of whack.
