Loud Fan

My 2006 Focus SES's fan is aggravatingly loud. Anything over setting 2 is bothersome; I leave it on setting 1 but not enough air is being circulated.
In the summer I usually have it on setting 3 with the AC on and it is unbearable. Are their any replacement parts that would make it quiet like my wife's Honda civic?
Thanks

Hmmm it is really too loud... well I thought that is normal because my Focus is from 2001 but if the same issue is with new car... well nothing try to complain because car is probably under waranty....
Or well next time buy Honda Civic ...I would like to have one much more than Focus... ;-)

There is still warranty on your car, I'd complain first.
However, my 1999 Focus fan isn't really quite although. Might be a security feature, so you know in which position it is running without taking your eyes from the road, just from the sound. ;-)

Why do you need it on anything higher than 2? The only reason I ever turn it on high speed is to clear the accumulated dust from the ducts never to actually ventilate.

Seems to be fine for me 99% of the time but then again the outside air temp only gets to the low 40*C locally :-)

Add window tinting to your glass to keep the heat build-up down? Re-circ the air for max cooling? Most compressors can't keep up with the higher fan settings anyway so you aren't really cooling the air further, just moving more air around.

Did you measure the volume of air on the Focus's #3 & 4 settings vs the higher settings of the Civic? I'd bet you AREN'T getting the same volume of air with the "quieter" fan!
