2010 Toyota Tundra Regular-cab, concerning the heater/Air

Customer Question

2010 Toyota Tundra Regular-cab, concerning the heater/Air conditioner blower fan. The fan motor is working, but it sounds like the fan impeller has separated from the shaft. First, if that is the case, is it repairable or does it need to be replaced. Second, how do you remove the fan; there seems to be no repair video on that year/model truck.
Thank you, Doug.
JA: Have you checked the fuses?
Customer: No, but I can hear the motor running.
JA: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I intend to, but I haven't attempted this, so far.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.
