I had the same problem. The fix is relatively easy. Open the glove box and remove the hinge screws, This will give you access to the blower motor. Disconnect the electrical plug to it and then undo the three screws. The bearings are sealed but with care and a little lubrication sprayed sparingly into each end the problem is corrected. I would recommend using G-96 lubricant (available at gunshops) instead of the ubiquitous WD 40 as it does not freeze up at -30c. I would also recommend purchasing a Haynes manual, it shows this and many other procedures listed in these forums. Well worth the money.
