Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima
In extremely cold weather, the fan makes a loud "almost grinding" noise for several minutes. The noise sometimes ends when you make a sharp turn and/or the motors been blowing for a few minutes (i.e the car heats up). My first thought is that something inside the blowed is stuck or frozen up or that its a vent issue in the heater. The heater itself works fine once you get beyond the noise issue.
Had same problem. Replace Blower Motor. Over a 100 dollars at local parts store, but found online for half price. About 30 minutes to replace. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?carcode=1431961&parttype=6916
6 screws to remove glove box, One plastic nut on kick panel and 3 screws hold the blower to the air box.

I had this same problem. It got cold and a mouse built a nest in the fan. I drive the car almost every day and its garage kept. After taking out the mouse and its nest the noise was gone.
