Question HELP! AC fan spins and rattles

I turned on the AC this morning to warm up the car and I can hear a strange noise coming from the AC Vents and it sounds like something is touching the fan blades inside, wierd.

All 4 speeds work fine, the fan blows air normal and I don't know what's in there or how something got inside the blades?


Any Ideas?

I think I might now why the AC blower fan is making that strange noise.

I remember I had to park 5.00 dollars the other day and I put the ticket on the dash.
Well,
I forgot about it and left it on the dash. and it was one of those small tickets, similar to the ones you get at an arcade for price exchange…..

I can bet 1.00 usd that small ticket felt under the windshield defog air vent and found its way to the AC fan blower

Somewhere on the forums I remember people pulling gum wrappers etc out of their AC, think they removed the in cabin air filter.

here says I need to remove the instrument panel, but I guess I don't need to do that if I can get to the blower by removing the glove box then?

I'm off today so I have plenty of time to do it
