Sounds like some leaves or debris may have made its way into your heater fan. heater fan assembly is under the passenger side dash in behind the glove box. You can get at it (or at least see it) by looking up in behind the dash while lying on your back, but this is difficult working position. Easier on back & arms if you remove lower dash section.

My heater/ac fan makes a clicking noise when running, why?


The bushings in the electric motor has worn out and the blower unit will need to be replaced. When the bushing in the shaft is worn out, the fan will rub against the blower cage which will make the noise you have described.

You can pick up the blower fan at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Water noise coming from heater


Maybe the blower motor, either the bearings in the motor are worn, causing the shaft to vibrate. Also it could be the fan blade, or hamster wheel, attached to the fan could be broken. I've also seen foreign objects fall down in the heater box, and the fan would rub up against that and make a noise.

My 95 toyota corolla makes grinding scraping noise when going uphill. It's coming from the right front of the car. Almost sounds like it's coming from the breaks or transmission. A mechanic thinks it could...


Bad motor mounts will not usually cause the kind of noise you describe they will cause more vibration to be felt at all times.

Sometimes the brake rotor dust cover plate can rub against the rotor and make a grinding/scraping sound. Raise the car, remove the wheel, and check the clearance between the dust cover and the rotor.

If your shocks/struts are bad the tire could be rubbing against the strut. Check the strut.

Could be valve lifters tapping which is most common, there could be a vacuum leak or something rubbing against the fan.

My defroster makes a rattling noise on high speed


could be leaves in the fan getting through the wiper vents or surrounding areas over time and the heater fan needs to be removed and cleaned out....or the heater fan bushes are worn through age and the fan or bushes need replacing or maybe even the heater fan is loose in its mounting and its rubbing somewhere
