An abnormal noise may develop from the HVAC blower motor as a result of debris ingestion. After any debris is removed, an air baffle screen can be installed on the inlet opening under the cowl grill to try and prevent a re-occurrence of the problem.

I have noticed that some times I hear a rattling noise when I turn on the fan to the heater or A/C. It sounds like a card that we used to put on our bike wheel spokes to make noise. I guess that it is debris,it is kind of loud, I have had it in the shop but I don't know if thy really found an exact cause. It is intermittent and therefore harder to diagnose. It did it the first summer I had it, then not again til the winter after. Now it does it when I use the heater more than the a/c. I will check into the filter that you recommend. Thank you.
said housing unit broke... repaired now it started again.
