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
Ford Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

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

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have tried and both the A/C and the heater makes the same noise after working fine for a little while
Ford Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

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.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
