SOURCE: The heater (fan) makes a loud noise.

The most obvious problem could be that something has fallen down into what is called the squirel cage of the fan.

Every once in a while a mouse will decide to build a nest there.

SOURCE: honda heater makes loud noise

ok well its possible there may be something stuck in the blower motor under the passenger side dash. ..or the blower motor itself could be on its way out, sometimes leaves or sticks from trees and even stove inside the glove box can find their way into the windshield cowling and into your blower motor..u can remove it to check by unplugging its white connector and remove the 8mm bolts that secure it into the heater core box..its very easy to remove..the 8mm bolts / screws should also have a phillips head on them...

You need to lubricate the 2 bearings on the motor. Takes about 30-50 min to take the area under the hood apart to get to it. It is in the housing underneath the Wiper assembly. Go to or for possibly pictures on how to do that.

Usually this is caused by a binding blend or mode door. The actuator keeps trying to move it and can't. Locate the exact source of the noise. Then disconnect the actuator and try opening and closing the door by hand.

2003 Nissan Xterra - Fan noise when a/c on

No that doesn't sound like the problem, the fan clutch locks up to cool the engine off due to the increased load of the AC system on the cooling system, so it locks up and gets much louder. If it didn't lock up the engine would overheat.

My 97 GMC Jimmy Fan problems.

It sounds like a fan blade is bent and is making contact somewhere , these are usually aluminium and easily pushed back into shape , but if the fan has worn out its bearings it will need to be replaced unless there is some sort of material that has wrapped itself around the fan causing it to jam up .

As you press on the gas, does the sound get louder? If so, replace your fan clutch, very common to go out.

I just got through spending $360 having both the clutch fan and water pump replaced in my 2003 Dodge Durango. When I drove it off the lot, it had kinda a louder sound than when I had taken it in, and...

A viscous coupling(fan clutch) works with gel inside the coupling. When heated(engine getting hot) it engages the fan and the louder noise you hear may be the fan engaging. It should not be audible under normal running conditions and moderate heat. You do hear it after just having started the engine but should go away about 30 seconds later. With the engine at operating temp and switched off you should be able to easily turn the fan by hand. You will feel resistance and attempting to spin the fan by hand will have it turn only about a quarter turn by itself. If you cannot turn the fan at all then it has either been replaced with a direct drive unit, or has been modified. (Some of the less scrupulous service centres will drill a hole through the old coupling, put a bolt through it and tel the customer it has been replaced!!! ) Neither are acceptable practice if the customer has not been informed of this.
If it's been modified you should be in for a refund of sorts if you were charged for a new viscous coupling. If it was not modified, raise the question with the service centre and ask them if they could identify the sound, just to be safe.
