No doesn't blow anything at all now....just makes the noise....did you replace this your self? Was it hard to do? If not how much did it cost to have done?

Agree pull the blower and check for damages and debri. Also many have a little metal clip on the wheel edge this acts as a balance weight. Check if missing can make the squirrel cage wobble makes a heck of a racket.

The good news is you just saved yourself some diag time, the down side is you really need to pull it apart to asses what needs to be replaced.

Well I got it fixed....not to sure wat all was wrong...Took the squirrel cage out and seemed to be lose and not balanced...tighten the end, and it seemed to fix it...put it back together, and turned on the a/c and it wouldn't blow hard enough to get anything to come out...thinking the motor was going bad as well...so a trip to autozone, and 90 dollars later everything it working good...
