yj 4.2 Strange heater noise

Hey guys, I've got an 88 yj l6 4.2 auto. The heat gets nice and hot, always has since i've had it. Also, since i've had it, the when the heat is on i get a constant whining noise. Its kinda high pitched, and gets louder the higher i set the fan. If you can imagine... it sounds like someone going ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, but obviously sounds mechanical.

Since i dont need my heat anymore for a while i figured i'd yank the fan or whatever i may need to do and get it fixed before summer's end. The noise is pretty loud and very annoying.

Thanks for any help.
Jon

Sounds like a bearing in the fan motor has gone out .

X's 2 on the Fan motor, just be aware that the new motor will not fit the stock hole in the firewall so you'll have to enlarge the hole size a bit. The current Siemens part number for the YJ is PM102 which is the same number as the "Blazer Upgrade", just FYI.
