2014 Toyota Sienna noise


Topic starter

Hi Scotty.  I have a 2014 Toyota Sienna with 97000 miles.  About six months ago I started getting a noise when I use the heater or air-conditioner.  It seems to be coming from behind the dashboard.  At first I thought it was the engine because it fills the cabin with an idling diesel truck sound.  It goes away when I turn off the air though.  Could it be the blower motor?  Do I need to pull the dash apart?  Thanks.

Yeah usually that's a blower motor but you can drop it from the bottom. Go under the dash and there's little covers you take off and then there's only four little bolts that hold it in place. You can drop it and get another blower motor

Thank you. I ordered the OEM part off Amazon for 169.26 from Fred Haas Toyota World Parts. The old one was under the glove box; pretty easy to get to. Remove 3 screws, unplug, then install new one. It probably took less than 30 minutes. If I would have known it was this easy, I wouldn't have put it off!
