A/C Noise under glove box


Recommended Posts

Random startup noise when turning on a/c

It goes away after a few seconds but strange sounds

Sounds like leaves rattling in the glove box?

Blower motor or could it be actual leaves

Have not opened up lower cover under glovebox where in cabin filter and blower motor live yet

Hi hahnmgh63,

 

Thanks for the advice.. Yes, I've been under there several times to replace the cabin filter...

 

Just starting to hear a really strange noise when starting up the car after sitting for a while and putting on the A/C

 

I pull the filter and inspect,  if no leaves fall out assume blower motor?

 

Should I proactively replace if the blower motor is the cause (even though system still working) or wait till it goes DOA?

 

On a side note... I'm not getting much air flow though the top vent on the top of dashboard ( the big oval shaped black grate) not sure if that is related to blower motor

It's probably leaves or it's a squeaky bearing on the blower motor.  Pull the filter and check around in there with a light and mirror to make sure you don't have any leaves stuck somewhere.  It's possible to get some leaves sucked in and stuck up against the filter as that *is* what's it's for.

 

Not much air is supposed to come out of the center grate.  That thing is called indirect air and it shouldn't be putting out much air.  You should be able to put your hand on it and it should feel warm, but that's about it (or cold if the AC is on).
