Default Blower motor fan stripped

When I turn the blower on in my truck I have been hearing a clicking noise for a little time now. I just figured it was a leaf or something hitting the actual fan. Tonight I got in the truck and it sounds and feels like the crank shaft of the electric motor is spinning inside where the fan would be pressed onto it. I figured I would just take it apart and gorilla glue it or something like that but I wanted to be sure that its possible to open the unit up before giving it a shot. Has anyone had theirs apart before?

Bump. Is this a sealed unit, or can I open it up?

I'm not sure what you are asking. Can you pull the fan out? Most definitely. You have to pull it out with the motor from the engine compartment. If your engine bay lay out is like mine, you will need to move the windshield washer reservoir to do it.

I haven't actually looked at my fan, so it may be just slid on the motor shaft and a spring lock washer is pressed on to the shaft to hold the fan in place.

Thanks for the info, I would have went at it from the interior. As for the fan being secured to the shaft, I was thinking the same thing. I am surprised there wouldn't be a key for something like this, I guess I'll see.

Both my 2001 Ranger and my 2007 F-150 would make a sound like there is a leaf or two in there. When that happens I just put blower on high and whatever it was would blow out of the way. I always thought it was leaves but could be a sticker in there somewhere that let go over time.

Just some thoughts.
Sorry, I couldn't help with taking it out but keep us posted what you do to make it stop.

I wish I had the time today, my projects are multiplying. Painted the bathroom today, mostly.
