I have a '00 Corolla that sat unused for a while, and in that time something built a nest near the A/C fan. The animal is long gone, but some of the hair/nest material is still in there, and when I turn the blower on, it makes noise. It makes noise at all speeds (though slightly different noises) and it blows fine, it’s just noisy.
I’ve removed a lot of the nest materials by opening up the glove compartment and reaching up through a little cage-like thing (where I can feel actual fan blades.) Moving that stuff around changed the noises a bit but there’s still noise.
Ideally I would like to take the thing apart so I can pull out whatever is stuck. I really don’t have the spare $ to have someone fix this now, and it seems like if I can pull things apart and put them together myself, I’ll be able to fix this.
Is this too risky? I can’t find a guide anywhere and I’m kind of worried about unscrewing things willy-nilly - mainly worried there will be something I won’t be able to maneuver back into place. Is there some other way to fix this?
