Heater problem
2005 Pontiac Vibe 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 55000 miles

The blower fan makes a loud rattle/ Bang when the setting is above low. I could get my fingers into the slot where the filter goes and found that either the fan shaft is bent or the fan is out of round. What's the easiest way to get to the fan out to find out which it is or if some thing is stuck in there.

Remove the 2 retainers from the powertrain control module (PCM) close out panel (1) below the instrument panel (I/P) compartment door.
Swing the PCM close out panel (1) down.

Open the I/P compartment.
Push in on both sides of the I/P compartment in order to release the safety catches.
Remove the I/P compartment door assembly from the I/P.

Remove the 2 PCM bracket fasteners.

Pull the PCM (2) with brackets (3) toward you and swing both down away from under the I/P.
Disconnect the blower motor electrical connector.
Remove the blower motor cooling tube.

Remove the 3 bolts (2) and the blower motor and fan (1) from the vehicle.
See if this helps.
