90 peercent of the time, believe it or not, mice have moved into your blower motor and the next building material in the blower motor is whats making the noise.

Auto Psychic :

if you can figure out how to get the under dash panel on the passenger side off you may be able to remove and clean the blower motor yourself.

Auto Psychic :

otherwise, your mechanic should charge no more than an hours labor.

heres what wikianswers say:

Auto Psychic :





Look under the glove box and you will see the motor held in place by three 8mm screws. Remove the screws and gently pry the motor loose. Remove the electrical plug by squeezing the locking tab and pulling it from the motor. Replacing with the new motor is obvious. Probably one of the easiest automotiverepairs you will ever do!
