Hello, all
I'm new to this forum, just got a 2010 Versa wagon for my daughter to drive, first thing I noticed was that it has no heat (bought it from my mother, who hasn't driven it in well over a year). I replaced the blower fan, and the new one a.) only works on 4 (I can fix this, not the biggest issue) and b.) the new fan is rubbing against something (not sure what) noise is loud, and when I pulled it back out, there are black lines on the outside, and on the end. I can't find anything in the opening that is not attached, that would cause either the noise or the lines. There was a mouse nest inside the fan I replaced. Any thoughts? It does not seem like I install this wrong, there really isn't any other way for it to fit. The fan is quiet when not installed in the car.

I had the same problem with my Nissan truck. My guess is that there is still junk in the heater box that the mice put there. It was amazing how much bedding the mice brought into mine.

You might also check the cabin air filter compartment to make sure that nothing has been sucked in that is causing a noise.

Good advice.

PIMP, thanks for the video. Dealer quoted me 85 bucks to replace filter. :surprise

FYI, as you can see he could of replaced it with the glove box in place.

Finally got a chance to take it apart again, checked the filter as well, and cleaned out more best. I stuck the shop vac in the And grabbed what I could. Put it back together, no noise. Then I noticed I had forgotten to replace the filter, and put it back in. Noise back. I thought that it must be rubbing against the filter, but I get the noise if I cover the opening for the filter. It seems like creating a vacuum causes something to hit the fan. I still can’t tell what.
Thanks for the advice so far.

You may need to turn it on and turn on your smart phone video option to record whats going on inside there with the filter removed. :nerd:

Well, we pulled the windshield wipers off to get the plastic cowl piece out of the way. She reached into the ac air intake and pulled a humongous mouse (?) nest out of the blower fan. We finished the job with the shop vac and the strange noise and foul smell were gone. I had pulled the glove box previously chasing down the blower noise, and if it comes to replacing the fan or motor , there will be a 2015 Versa S on the market, really cheap...

I had a 1990 GMC Sierra before I bought my Versa. Had a horrible smell for a week or two before I tracked a dead gecko out of the blower fan area. Amazing how a small animal can cause such a huge smell.

I know my inlaws have paid the Nissan dealer twice to clean a mouse nest out of the blower area of their leased Rogue. Something like $300 a pop.

Luckily I've never experienced the above and I live in a somewhat rural area.
