Post 94 MX3 heat/ac blower problem/noise

Pull the blower unit out and see what's going on. Just need to remove glove box and surrounding panel. Should be three 10 mm nuts holding the unit in place, and a plastic fastener holding the air duct to it.

I swear years ago I saw a replacement fan assembly online somewhere. Not that bad $-wise IIRC...

Those leaves will keep coming back, because there's no cabin filter above the blower.

the best part of it is that all those leaves are from trees that were around the drive way from where i bought it.

I have the same problem also with a noisy fan; however, when I turn my fan up not only does it make a lot of noise, but I get a strong rubber smell (almost like something is burning)
