Good day all,
Does anyone have information with regards to how regularly you should service/clean the HV/traction battery cooling fan in the lower trunk area of the car?
I'm nearing the 2 years of ownership mark, and have yet to find any mention of such maintenance. Either online or in the manual. I have instead read about other vehicles with high voltage hybrid battery systems that had battery cooling fans full of dust and debris, and eventually suffered a complete battery failure due to overheated cells. All because the cooling fan had lost its efficiency could not supply enough air.
I did not any see any filter in the fan intake the last time I checked, so I would imagine you would need to take apart the unit to reach the fan and clean it properly.
Any DIY guides on how to do this?
