Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler
Just replaced the blower motor and blower motor resistor on my 97 jeep wrangler. I was only getting air flow on the high setting and only for about 2 minutes before the motor sounded like a dying cat and the quit working. As soon as I replaced both items, I get air and changing speeds, however there is a terrible noise like something is rubbing, however I can not seem to find what is rubbing. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
The blower motor squirrel cage blower wheel must be rubbing inside the blower case or something is in there like leaves..

I'm not 100% sure where it is, or possibly built right in to the dash control/fan switch, but I'd be tempted to stop & see the parts guy at the dealership, or another dealership, and ask if they have one, or a picture of one. Once you see it, you'll know where to look. Just a guess but quite often built right into switch on dash.

You have to take the glove box off and it is right behind it, need a #20 Torx to take it replace it. The glove box is the hardest part of the job, I just replaced mine on an 05 Grand Cherokee but it didn't fix it for me, was well worth the $8.60 to try though.

Blower motor resistors are found on the pasenger side ducts near the blower motor. It should have three wires going to it.

Run a new wire to the motor from the switch this will do 2 things for you. It will tell you if your switch is still good, and if it works you just fixed your problem.
