Under glove compartment passenger side there is 4 screws that holds the blower in place loosen them and you will access the blower to clean it out.

SOURCE: Honda Civic heater / blower noise.

you need to remove your glove box assy.(beleave only 2 screws and pivot clips) make sure its not anything from glove box that has slipped behind. once box is out uf way you can access easier the blower motor assy. it actually attaches into blower box from bottom side. when looking at you will find three screw/bolts fastening motor to casing. remove those and then slowly lower motor and fan cage(attached to motor shaft) out from housing. sometimes it takes a little convincing to come out but not real tough. once out you most likely find the object causing noise in fan cage or resting up on lip area of housing unit. once found install in reverse order. let me know if this helps or if we need to dig a little deeper into! good luck!

1999 isuzu rodeo AC/Heater blower making noise

Sounds like EXACTLY what you described (I've had that happen before). There is a leaf (or similar plastic/natural object) in your fan blower. This is located under the dashboard, typically under (or most easily accessed from) the passenger floorboard. If lucky and like mine, it was a few bolts (3 or 4) to take the cover off (with the blower attached), and all kinds of dirt, and a big leaf, fell out. They get in when the outer air vents are open. Good luck!

Honda civic 2003 heater fan not working

The blower is located under the passenger side of the dash. There is likely a trim panel that will need to be removed to gain access to the blower motor. Once the panel is out of the way the three screws that hold the blower to the housing can be removed and the blower motor will drop out. You can then inspect and/or remove the parts that are blocking it.

I have a 1994 honda accord lx..heater fan was makin funny noises for a while..then stopped working..started working and stopped again..Is it hard to replace..could it be a fuse..I;m a girl..could I do it...

The heater fan is on the right side floor board under the dash. It is a little tough to do but not extremely hard. If the blower was making noise, it could be something in the heater housing. If it is starting and stopping it is probably the blower motor. When replacing the blower motor you may have to remove the fan from the motor depending on where you buy a new one. The fans (usually made of plastic) break very easy. If you attempt this, be very careful in removing the fan.

Under the dash on the right side you will have to lay on the floor and look up. There may be a lower dash panel to remove. The motor is just below the glovebox. Removed the wire, remove the bolts/screws attaching the blower to the housing. Remove the blower.

Fan motor in landcruiser 100 series is making a squealing/lound humming noise when the aircon is turned on, Im assuming it is the fan motor, noise coming from under the glovebox compartment of the vehcile.

Check your fanbelt in the engine bay, It is uncommon for an 8 year old Toyota to have a heater fan problem, however they are reasonably easy to access from underneath in the passengers footwell . It may have a leaf or something sucked into the unit .
