Your blower motor bearing is going out in your blower motor. Have the blower motor itself replaced for proper fix. Hope this helps, James Booth

    It should cost somewhere around 50 dollars for the part. Not sure about the labor price. :) Please RATE!!!

  • You have to open the glove box and turn the two finger switches 1/4 turn.
    If the blower isn't working its probably not the fuse anyway. The part you need to replace is the fan speed resistor.

A loud rythmic clicking under the dash behind glove box when ignition turned on, once car has started, clicking is faster, but same loudness. Any ideas on the cause? Otherwise, the car rund great.

If I would have to guess, I would say it might be some debris in your blower motor. (usually located behind the glove box on a lot of vehicles). Try turning your heater fan off, or increase the speed, does the "clicking" stop or get faster? If so, you may just have some debris (leaf, twig, etc) in there. The problem may work itself out if thats the case.

How do you replace the cooling/heating fan? I want to replace the cooling/heating fan. It makes very loud noises and screeching sounds. The AC and heat still work, but the fan is extremely loud. How do...

It sits up above where the passengers feet would be. Remove the panel under the glove box to expose the are below the dash. These motors are usually very tightly packed in there and take some playing around with to get out. Sometimes you have to pull the carpet back to get more clearance. A quater inch socket set with universal is handy as well.

Hi, I was wondering if I can fix the loud noise with my fan. It is getting louder and louder. 2005 Camry LE.

I would suggest to you to remove the lower cover, under the glove box, and then the glove box door. Next, remove the 3 screws that holds the heater fan motor to the heater box. Then, lower the fan motor out of the box area. You will probably find some debris in the fan part of the motor./fan assembly. If you car has a cabin air filter, I would also recommend that you change it at this time, whilst you have the cover off. This is a very easy job.

Sound coming from passenger side when i turn the heating fan

I would remove the fan motor. You may have ingested something from the glove box into the fan motor. This is a known issue, the opening for the heater box is directly behind the glove box, and papers can get sucked into the heater fan. The fan is held on by 3 screws, under the glove box, it is easy to remove.

Regarding the coolant loss, I would suspect that you have a water pump leak. A slow leak is not uncommon, and a pressure test will hold the pressure. I would have the water pump examined.

Hope this helps; a FIxYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you allowing me to provide my assistance.

Is the noise that you hear a loud "humming" nosie? If so, I need you to remove the lower panel, under the glove box, (if it has one), and remove the 3 screws that hoilds the heater fan to the plastic box. After removing the fan, inspect the fan and inside the box for debris. Most likely, you will find some type of debris contained in the fan blades. This is very common, I drop 2-3 fan motors a week around this time of year. You may also find a rodent nest in the fan area.

Blower motor location for 2000 Caravan

The motor is located just under the glove box on the passenger side. I remove the glove box then the panel below the glove box. I also go ahead and pull back the carpet and the padding under the motor. It is held in place by 3-4 bolts that take a 7-8 millimeter socket. I use a swivel extension for the back bolts. The motor with the fan blade attached is a tight fit, just keep wiggling and pulling it should come out. Try to remove the old moter without cracking the fan blade, because sometimes the replacement motor doesn't come with a blade
