    Hearing a grumbling sound from below the right side dash. While running AC or heater, sometimes the blower will shut off then immediately turn back on. Help anyone?

    You could have corroded/ate through wiring with an intermittent loose connection. But I’d say it’s the blower motor going bad. At 18 years old that’s a pretty good life. Should be able to pick one up cheap at a salvage yard or off eBay. Won’t be too bad to change.

    In the mornings when starting up the engine with the blower switch off I can here the rumbling sound from underneath the dash (right side). I will inspect the area by removing glove compartment, open up the area and see what I find. Thanks!
