Unlike Fantastic Fan Customer Support from Maxx Fan does not exist on a retail level. I am also unable to find a dealer to buy parts or repair the unit.

Easy job and fairly good instructions (but you can't install with gears in the down position as instructed, because well, the top has to be up while you're working on it). Other than that, it's a very straight forward swap.
Took me about 20 minutes. However, I could have done a second one in less than half the time, once I had experience with the first one. You'll stop the rattle while driving and be glad you got your fan working again.
