bookmarking this thread, thanks for the DIY. I have this problem too, happens when I turn fan on and happens intermittently, so I am happy to see it is a relatively easy DIY.

I used WD40 and it is now silent.

I am curious to know if this fan is suppose to be on ALL the time when the car is on, or only goes on when required? It seems like every time I put my finger in the fan, it is never spinning!

I ended up buying a used blower motor, and followed the DIY - it is now fixed!

I ended up with an extra used blower motor that I am selling. I bought it online and the guy sent me the wrong one. This one has the 2 prong connector. Email me if interested!

Question

What is the function of this blower motor which supposedly is connected to the AC ?? Does this pushes Cold/hot air or makes the AC work? Because I been having this bird type of noise coming from there and now my AC doesn't work so good, is not throwing cold air no more... and it seems like the noise is starting to be more and more often, before it was every one in a while. now it seems like is more often, any help?

I doubt the AC/Heater blower chirping would have much effect as to whether it blew cold air or not even if the motor was going bad because it pushes an insane amount of air, even when it's not working optimally. Blowing warm air sounds like a refrigerant charge issue.

To be sure take the last 7 of your vin and put it in the serial number field on www.realoem.com

Then select - 12 Engine Electrical System
Then Select - 12 35 Control Unit Box

It will be part 5, blower with motor and you can obtain the part number there.

When removing the 3 screws in step 2 did anyone else have difficulty removing the screw behind all the wires? In my car the screw is pretty much completely behind the wires and i cant get to it with the screwdriver. Any tips would be helpful
