so can you tell me where is the fan located and how to get to it?

Don't know, sorry, it got fixed under warranty :( But it has something to do with not having the cabin filter, and noise was coming from the passenger side fan, which makes me guess that it's easily accessible by removing the glovebox perhaps?

Yes, you have to remove the glove box (two screws are hidden under the dash trim panel that faces the door), and behind that is the cabin air filter spot (whether or not the CAF is in there, the access door is there).

Here is the DIY for cabin filter replacement and you can see the fan housing underneath the filter. It shows another way to remove the glovebox cover. I have done it several times and it is easy to do.

oh god. I hit a bird about a month ago and I'm wondering if pieces of him are near there because for the first 2wks a RANK smell would come out of the a/c as it would start running. god now i'm scared.
