You may need a replacement fan assembly. The procedure to remove and replace the fan is as follows. Remove the hood (four bolts), then remove the plastic cover and rubber trim that conceal the fan and climate control compartment. Unplug the fan. Get your 8 mm socket ready with a long extension. There are 3 screws that hold the fan in place. Peal the rubber boot around the fan off, on the side that is closest to the passenger side. On the bottom of the fan inside the air passage way, near the boot there is a screw that needs to be removed. The second screw is obvious and holds the fan in place with a metal bracket near the passenger side fender. The third screw is a bit more difficult. It needs to be removed from inside the car. I've seen it in two places, it depends on the age of your car. Sometimes it is on the outside of the air housing and is easily identifiable because it's the only 8 mm screw. I've also seen it located inside the air housing so you may need to manually push the air flap back and look for it with a flashlight. Once you have removed all three screws then the unit will come out of the car easily. While you've got it removed check the seals and clean the water drain passages. A good source for a replacement fan is 928 International.
