Default What the F$%K is this Noise!!!! 6.5 Gen





Hey guys, I've been meaning to do this for a while....couldn't find how to embed the video..sorry. PLEASE my Maxima family somebody tell me WTH this noise is. For shame I didn't hear this noise before buying the car. If you fast forward to about 22 seconds in, put your volume up and you will hear this noise. It's from the vent. Any mechanics/techs think that somebody was playing dirty with my car? My buddy thinks the shop I took my car too did something sinister or droppped a piece of paper in my car to make this noise. I have NO idea what it is or where it's coming from to even begin to fix it.

it's kinda subtle but fast forward to 20 seconds in..i had to adjust the video so you could hear the noise. I played the video before I posted it, trust me I can hear the noise. You might need to turn the vol. up

Me too, full blast still didn't come across. Here is a guess, maybe something got past your In Cabin Microfilter and is hitting your fan. I'd pull it out and look in there. Some of these filters can be super nasty with crap in them. If for some reason a leaf or something got partially in there it might make a noise in the car

Here is a thread with a youtube on how to replace it.

I can't hear the noise either and I have the speakers cranked. Is it like a very subtle ticking sound? Because I get that from the passenger footwell.

Yes, it's a subtle ticking sound, sometimes it intensifies like there's a flap of paper making noise in the wind... Hmm well I am a bad example of spud quality because I have a 550 watt computer speaker setup lol... You might not be able to hear it from laptop speakers. I'll take another video, my bad; but trust me this sound is constant and if you were to sit in the car with no music on and the fan on, you'd hear it.

Had this problem with my 95 Max. Definitely something with the blower motor. Mine had some debris in there after a major wind storm.

I never do that

On the serious side, pull the glove box and the filter, it's on the passenger side where the sound is. Better use of your time than another video.

Here's an updated video. There should be no question about hearing the noise here. You might take a second to realize what you're hearing but trust me if this was your DD you'd notice after a while. Any input??

I really think you have something in the blower motor. The only way to find out is to take it out. That is what I had to do on my 95 Max which was a pain.

Praise the Lord Dani confirmed my sanity. I know what i hear lol. So yeah, we think the scum at the tint place I had went to dropped a screw or a piece of paper down the air vent. I guess it's probably not worth my time to try and repair this because my knowledge is not at the caliber to rip half my car apart

No problem....in case you feel that you can tackle it or that noise is driving you insane, here is what's ahead of you buddy.

***Disconnect battery and drain residual power***

1. Remove the glove box assembly.
2. Remove the console side cover.
3. Remove the ECM
4. Disconnect the blower motor, intake door motor and fan amp control connector.
5. Disconnect main harness from the top of the blower unit.
6. Remove 2 bolts and 1 screw from blower motor, then remove it.
