So what could have happened to the blower motor? Mine does that too......ImTheDevil said:Is it only with the AC compressor engaged, or anytime the fan is running (ie, vent, heat, aircon)? If it's at any time, I'd suspect the blower motor. Haven't gotten dirty on an Ody yet, but in all the other cars I've wrenched on, the blower motor is in the passenger side dash, behind the glovebox.
Good to know! Congratulations. Blower motors should last more than 10 lousy years. I have 2 1987 cars with orig blowers. No noise,, etc. Some stuff in Hondas is just junk, period. Other stuff is way better than competition. Hard to figure.KFWA said:well I replaced the cabin filter after 172K miles. It was so dirty I had to vacuum the area out after I pulled out the old one. It was solid dirt and leaves. Very strange that you actually have to cut a part off the car to replace the filter.
Read up on here about how to take out the blower motor (yes, the 3rd screw is a monster but if you use an 8mm wrench instead of a socket or flathead screwdriver it comes out very quickly. It just took me 20 minutes to get around to using the wrench).
Sure enough, once I got the motor out it had 4 leaves in it that had blown in there when I had the struts out.
Put it back and I have great airflow, a fresh smelling cabin and a quiet fan.
had nothing to do with the A/C itself.
