I have a 2001 Chevy Prizm. The fan for my heater started only working on high for the last several months. The fan is still only working on high speed but now it is making a loud noise also. What do I need to do? Where is the blower motor located and how do I get to the blower motor if I repair this myself? Thanks for your help.

Move blower speed selector switch from high to low positions and listen for a decrease in blower motor speed. If blower motor is inoperative in any or all speeds, go to appropriate diagnostic procedure.
