Fan blower motor makes a little noise

My fan blower motor is making noise much the same as if you had a clothes pin with a card on your rear bicycle tire when you were a kid. Is there any way to fix that or stop it from doing that?

Is it easy to remove ? I'm not sure what is what under there and don't want to mess anything up. Do you have any pictures to illustrate it?

Remove the bolts securing the fan motor's speed control to the firewall, using the -inch drive socket. Move the speed control aside to gain access to the blower motor.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor by pulling the connector out of the socket. Remove the bolts around the circumference of the blower motor securing it to the firewall, using the -inch drive socket. Pull the blower motor out of the firewall.

If it has been a long time since the blower motor has been removed you may need a flat head screwdriver to help pry the motor from the firewall.

Hope this helps and good luck!
