2003 Forester Heater AC Fan Blower makes loud noises

I need suggestions for where to find the part to replace the Heater AC Fan Blower motor besides the dealer if at all possible. I'm also wondering if it is possible to oil or lubricate the fan instead of replacing it all together.

Ac fan is making extremely loud noises


Are you referring to the blower motor inside the car? If so, they get leaves in them which puts them out of balance and makes them noisy. Just take out the blower, 3 screws, and clean it. That's the cheap answer. It can be a bad blower motor.

My blower fan for the vent, AC and heater and defrost, on my 1999 Buick Regal made strange loud screaming, screeching sounds before it quit altogether. Which fuse would I replace to make it work again?


If the motor was making those kind of noises it is most likely the motor itself needs to be replaced. It turns on bushings instead of bearings and they wear out making that kind of noise when they do.Hope this helps.

The heater/AC makes an obnoxiously loud noise coming from the passenger side around the glove box when turned on. Has been developing for about a week.


Sounds like your blower motor bearing is going bad. Pull glovebox and you can access blower motor. Pull blower motor and check that fan/cage is tight and not clogged with leaves etc... Had an instance when mine made a bunch of noise found parking stub had been sucked into fan,

Never just replace any item because someone suggested it may have failed. Before replacing anything, you need to check each item for any signs it's bad. In addition to what I mentioned, the blower motor itself can also cause a problem if it is worn out and is drawing too much amperage to operate. If the blower makes any noise or the wiring becomes warmer than it should be after replacing any damaged parts, look at the motor. Bad motor ground can cause problems as well so check that too.
