Hello I will help you with your question,

 

If the blower failed after making noise (behind the glove compartment) then the blower motor will need to be replaced. Unfortunatly the engineers designed your van so that the dashboard will have to be removed and the HVAC box opened to replace the motor.

 

There may be debris blocking the fan cage from spinning or the bearings in the motor may have failed but the result is the same, the dash has to come out to repair the motor.

 

Let me know if you have further questions about this

 

Thank you
