This is the interior fan motor and housing.The rattle may be a piece of debris in there(i.e. leaf or a piece of paper)or a thing in the electric motor called a brush.Run the fan at different speeds and if the sound gets quicker with the fan,its probably just a bit of debris.The other,the fan wont run as well and may may need replacing when it gives up and wont work

behind the glove compartment, you have to disconnect the box damper and remove the glove box stops, let the glove compartment hang down and the filter is in front of you in the evaporator housing behind a cover.

How to locate the fuse box in a '94 buick regal glove box?


The main fuse block is located in the underside of the instrument panel, in or behind the glove compartment. Remove the access cover in the glove compartment to access the fuse block. Spare fuses and a fuse puller should always be kept here. Various convenience connectors, which snap-lock into the fuse block, add to the serviceability of this unit.

My 2004 Mazda MPV AC does not seem to be working it blows air out but not as cold as it should be - any ideas - it seemed cold enough last week 


My 2004 MPV was just diagnosed with a corroded aluminum line to the rear cabin air-con unit. It cost me $50 to get the unit leak-checked. Also got a $700 estimate to replace the line.

Does 2004 Mazda MPV ES equip with a cabin air filter?


(cabin filter solution) Their is an cabin airfiliter behind the glove compartment (2004 mazda mpv) which is very easy to take off. Replace the airfilter or clean it with soap and water. Open the glove box and on the bottom left had side of the glove box if you apply enough presure on it by pulling it out towards you and slightly down it should pop off. The right side should slide out immediately following the left side pop. All it is, is a fork like claw holding on to a bar. On the ride side is a bar sliding into a hole. That should do the trick. After the first time its a sinch.

How do I get the glove compartment to stop rattling?


Get it fixed under warranty. My 04 and your 06 have the same glove box. The right hinge was rattling around in mine and they replaced it no problem. Not worth trying to fix yourself :)
