    I’ve had this car for almost 2 years and there’s been a rattling sound from the glovebox when the AC is on, no matter the speed. Until this summer it was fine and now I’m running into issues with the AC. Being from Texas it’s hot more often than not so I typically have my AC running full blast. Around March I was in my car after driving for 4ish hours with my AC up all the way. It suddenly started blowing more which I thought was weird but I just ignored it. Then around early June the air started barely trickling even at full blast, but it was still cold. So I turned the AC down for a little bit, and then turned it back up gradually and it was fine. Cut to today, on I-35 in 95° weather with my AC on full blast and it’s blowing even lower than before. I turn the AC off again, then try to gradually turn it up and now there’s no air at all. I get home, turn the AC up all the way, turn my car off, wait a little bit, turn it on but don’t crank it, wait a little bit, then crank my car and STILL nothing. The air has always blown super cold so I don’t think it’s an issue with freon, but I could be wrong. Any advice at all?

    Na, hit the bottom of the blower and see if it changes output? Should be a simple swap you can handle this!

    If you don't get air blowing even with the AC off its probably the blower motor.

    Simple and cheap fix.
