2008 impala, terrible nauseating odor from heater

sounds like a mouse nest in hvac system, no smell because when using ac it doesn't use outside air, probably a nest on the screen at the hvac air intake or if you have a a cabin air filter check in there. many times rodents make nests have babies and then the car moves and they cannot feed the babies and so they die and rot smell comes into car. usually it is not hard to access because there should be a screen between the outside and inside under the cowl cover, if no screen and the little buggers vot into your hvac duct system this could be a much bigger problem entailing removal of dash completely. most likely this isn't the case, good luck

Heater fan noise-'02 Nissan Maxima

Had same problem. Replace Blower Motor. Over a 100 dollars at local parts store, but found online for half price. About 30 minutes to replace.
6 screws to remove glove box, One plastic nut on kick panel and 3 screws hold the blower to the air box.

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.
