Whistling heater fan/vent

Now that the cold is arriving and the heat is being used, I notice a whistling noise coming from passenger side floor vent. It is pretty apparent when the fan is on the lowest or second lowest setting.

I can't tell if its the floor vent or the internal fan making the noise. But strange it only happens with the heat. Never had this in the summer with A/C.

I'll probably have it checked next oil change, but wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Re: Whistling heater fan/vent

I had a squeek that got worse and worse.
I did various things to fix it, but it got worse and worse.

$45 for a TYC motor and it was gone. Did not take very long to replace.

Is it me or everything plastic on the new Jeeps is cheap and breaks easily?
