Jeep Patriot heater fan makes noise

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?

    it sounds to me, like a piece of paper hitting on the fan blade. changes sound as you increase the speed. will be taking it back to the dealer this month.

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.

Single knock sound from dead stop or when slowing down

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.
