Default Fan whirling noice

I have recently noticed a whirling noise when the blower fan for the AC/heater is on. What's involved with this if needs to be replaced.

The fan is mounted in the usual way, through the bottom of the blower housing.

Have you checked the cabin filter for debris? It's located behind a secret compartment at the back of the glovebox. You need to dislocate the hinge of the the glovebox to get at it.

Yeah, this is most likely debris inside of the blower fan assembly. Check & replace the cabin filter and clean the blower out. If the noise still persists, then maybe look into replacing it.
