Weird A/c Fan Noise

when the fan is on 1 or 2, u can hear a popping and clicking noise. its pretty aggravating, kinda sounds like the Pop Rocks candy lol


i brought it to the dealer a week ago and it didnt do it for them. now it seems to do it a lot more. the guy said it could be a leaf stuck in the fan, and they will charge to fix it/look at it if thats the case. just wanted to see what u guys thought it could be.. heres the vid


- thanks

Change the cabin air filter behind the glove box and clean out the fan while you're in there.

Your car will smell better, and the clicking noise from debris in the fan will go away.

Yes very very annoying,

The problem comes as far as the 2000 Cavaliers, I had a couple of them and they all do the same noise..

My solution.. just turn the radio louder..
