Whenever I turn on the heater on my 2008 Jeep Patriot, it makes a noise. The dealer said leaves get down into the fan - he cleaned it once but said I'd have to pay in the future. Does anyone know how to get to the fan easily?

Re: Jeep Patriot heater fan makes noise
The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side of the dash.a bracket with 1 screw and 3 other screws hold the motor in the heater box. remove them amd the electrical connector and the motor an be removed
I pulled the glove box out by compressing both sides. Behind this you will see the blower. There is a rectangular panel that is removed by pressing the tabs on each side. This will reveal the blower fan which gets leaves caught in it.

that takes a live human to find.
a full inspection up front.
asking the deaf and blind here, is off the wall.
if motivated, use a $5 stethoscope parked, and 2nd person turns wheels. and find true source
or get it serviced like the other 99.9% do.
Open the power distribution center box near the battery and remove the asd relay that should shut it down. as for the problem itself, it could be a bad relay, a bad ignition switch or some odd ball thing that needs testing to find. Good luck!
I had the same problem on a brand new 2008 JEEP Patriot. The solution after 2 trips to the dealer was to tighten all the suspension bolts in the front. Note wether your problem is in the front or rear and go to the dealer.
