Default A/C Problem

Hi,

Driving home this afternoon I put my A/C in recirculate and after about 30 seconds it sounded almost as if the A/C had sucked something in and gotten stuck. It started making a loud low pitch whining noise, and when you turn the A/C off it sounds like the fan is hitting something, as if you would stick your hand in a ceiling fan.

Does anyone have any suggestions. How can I get in there to see if something is stuck?

Thanks & God Bless,

Travis

Travis, If you remove the cabin air filter cover & the cabin air filter (if you have one) and look down into the blower compartment you'll see the squirrel cage. Use a mirror and try to get a look around down in there for any foreign objects at the blower intake.

I had a 2001 Aurora that sucked a piece of paper out of the glove compartment and into the air cabin filter area. Shredded it to bits.....lol

I had the same thing happen in my corsica. Sucked a sheet of paper out of the glove box (my wife apparently thinks there'* some type of competition to see how much crap you can put in there). It sounded like a bicycle with a card in the spokes (geesh, am I old or what)

Anyway, if there is a cabin filter, where is it?

Look on the passenger side of the car, on the black plastic piece below the passenger windshiled wiper. It'* easier to see with the hood open.
