There is a cabin filter before the blower/duct work. once you lower the glove box you will see the access panel. Remove the panel and the cabin filter will be behind it. Critters can only get as far as the filter and if the filter has never been changed it is probably really dirty and has its own ecosystem growing on it.

Dead mouse smell and nest in dashboard how to find it?


I've seen this before. Mice. if small enough enter from the outside into the air intake and get into the fan and motor. The least fix is to remove the fan and motor assy. the worst is you will have to have a qualified technician remove the whole dash assembly.

I have a 2003 Lincoln Town Car. Iturned on the a/c and there is a loud noise coming from the passenger side where the heater and ac are located. There is also a strong smell. Any suggestions?


That is where the blower motor is located. It could be that there is some debris (leaves, road dirt etc..) in the blower motor. I'm not sure what kind of smell you are referring to but if that car has sat for an extended period of time I have seen small rodents get into the duct work and build nests in areas such as the blower motor. I would recommend not running the fan (so as not to damage it) and getting it to shop where they can get into the blower motor assembly and see whats stuck in there.

When I turn on the fan past the 3 speed it sounds like a low,loud, growling sound like it has airplane engines turning on. I also smelled a fowl odor in side my car, my husband thinks a field mouse is in...


It's very possible that a mouse has gotten into the duct work and ended up trapped inside the blower motor fan. The now dead mouse would cause the blower fan to be out of balance & wobble considerably and make noise plus it would smell quite a bit. I see a handfull of dead mice in blower motor fans each year so it's not all that uncommon. The fix is to remove the blower motor and clean out all the debris. Most of the time the blower and fan are fine and can be reinstalled once they are cleaned up. Hope this helps you find your problem!

Fan control only works on high in a gmc 2005 canyon


Replace the blower motor resister,it is mounted right next to the blower motor,it has a lug with about 7 wires on it.Just unplug it and remove two screws to remove the resister.This controls the speeds for the blower motor.The blower motor is the cause of the resister failure.Even if the motor seems to sound,and run fine,it is pulling to many amps.

Mice made nest in my blower motor a/c system

Something dead inside the heat/ac fan


Remove the blower motor and see what's inside the cage. You might want to wear disposable rubber gloves in case you find a dead mouse or something. You may also need a mirror and flashlight to look around in the blower opening to find the critter. After it's all cleaned out you can spray some lysol disinfectant in the hole, on the evaporator fins, and the blower cage to remove some of the odor.

Replacing Blower Resitor?


shouldn't have to remove anything. lay on your back on the passenger side floor and look up at the duct work... you'll need a light to see. look near the fan for the part that bolts into the duct work... it will have a connector on it... that is your heater resister.

Removalof dashboard


Before you take the dash off, try this: Remove the cover under the glove box. Remove the 3 screws that holds the fan motor onto the blower housing. Pull the fan motor down. Look for the rodent, or a nest. Look up, to see if a cabin air filter is installed, remove it & clean/replace. It would be very difficult for the rodent to get past the A/C evaporator & into the heater ducts, as they enter first thru the fan area. The fan usually traps the rodents.
