Managed to remove the fan and motor from my 307 HDi today, (With climate control) but can't see how you remove the actual fan itself off the spindle to gain access to the rectifier/resistor.

The rectifier/resisitor is the half moon spikey type.

It a few years since i had a 307 however i think fan is moulded to the shaft, however the motor can be removed from the casing by removing the two nuts/bolts on the end of the casing and then you can pull motor free to gain access to hedgehog unit

Pretty sure if you remove the bolt in the centre of your first pic holding the fan impeller then the impeller just slides off(may be a tight fit but should come off)
then remove the 2 torx screws holding the hedgehog resistor :)

Looks like the replaced the bolts with a single torx screw to locate the motor based on that pic you can see the moulding mark where the second fixing directly across from the single torx. The screw should undo and then you pull the motor out (its a snug fit)

It was indeed that single torx screw holding the motor in place.

After unscrewing it, the motor was a little tight into the plastic, so I used a small spanner to lever it out, and it separated fairly easily after some persuasion. Then using liberal amounts of contact cleaner on the motor, it looked as good as new.

There doesn't appear to be any heat or scorch marks to the hedgehog, and that too got a good spray of contact cleaner, but saying as I have had the car nearly 3 years, and am guessing it's the original, I think it would be prudent to change it.

You know, I didn't, but given the fact it was potentially 14 years old, it was probably in need of replacing anyhow.

My apologies for the late reply. Totally forgot about the post.

Replaced the hedgehog, but sadly damaged the fan while re installing it, so ordered a second hand one from a local breakers. Rather than strip the old hedgehog off, and put my new one on, I tried the whole complete unit before fitting it, and it worked a treat, so I installed it, and have kept the new hedgehog as a spare. Changed the pollen filter at the same time, as I am sure it can be a source of overheating if there is no clean flow to the fan.

And now, we have a fully functioning fan, and nice cold air con.
