Question about 2003 Acura MDX
This is the 4th time since I bought the car new. When I turn on my air conditioning something is making a sound (tap tap tap) and the blower sounds out of balance. In the past it appears to have been a mouse when I take it to the dealer. They say they can't do anything to inhibit access. I want to start removing the rodent myself if someone could tell me how to get to the blower. Thanks
I've been hearing this same loud noise in my car for about 6 months or more, when I use my heater/AC blower. At high settings, it vibrates the whole dash! I did a little online Googling and found that sometimes leaves (and oth...er things) get into the blower, which is located down low under the glove box in a 2003 Acura MDX. I read that its fairly easy to remove the blower from its housing by climbing under there and removing some Torx screws, moving the wiring harnesses aside, and disconnecting the power supply connector.
Then today, I read this post, then tonight, I removed the heater/AC blower and... yep, you guessed it... a dead dessicated mouse, flattened out by the high RPMs of the blower spinning him around in my car for the last 6 to 8 months! After a propper burial, I re-installed the blower, and its smooth and quiet again, and hmmm I also think that my car has a more pleasant... ambiance now for some reason as well.

This is easy just remove the plastic panel under the dash on the right side (kick panel) it just pulls off. then remove the wiring connector and tube from the blower motor and remove the three 8mm screws and pull the motor down to clean it out heres a picture of the location http://senduit.com/0274d6
