Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Did you hear noises in the engine area with ac on and did the air stop blowing cold with this issue here?

Let me know,thanks Pete.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Once I stated to hear the noise, the cold air have stopped blowing. I don't quite know if the noise is coming from the engine itself, but once I turned off the A/C, the noise also stops

Does this noise occur with the heater on as well in any vent position?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have tried and both the A/C and the heater makes the same noise after working fine for a little while

O.k.,I suspect this is the blower fan motor at fault.This motor is the small motor that circulates the air through the cabin.The bearings can start to come apart in it causing this noise as well as the fan cage can come off or come loose causing this noise here.

The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side as shown below.It can be removed by removing the screws as shown below as well then replaced.I would have it removed and check to see if it is wobbly or damaged needing replaced.
