So for those that replaced the blower, did it solve your cricket issue?

Turning on blower and then, from the inside center vents, blowing a stronger blast of air into vents to dislodge crud and then have blower motor blow it back out into car (I can clean car easier than getting into motor).
I think I might try this and follow up with white lithium grease. The sound is annoying but I just turn up the radio to drown out the noise.

More like a no driving experience.
