Default Interior fan noise/leaf sounds

When I got my truck one of the vent covers was missing so there Was a lot of debris leaves and such down inside I vacuumed those all out as best I could but now have what sounds like a bunch of leaves stuck in my fan when I go to turn it on. I've looked underneath the dash but looking for some direction in how to pull the cover off to expose the fan so I can get all that crap out of there. Any suggestions.

Remove glovebox and the metal support behind it. You will see the fan. Remove and clean.

You may be able to loosen the screws on the blower and drop it down without taking off the glovebox. It's been a couple years since I've done one so I can't remember for sure

You're probably right with the nice humid conditions in Florida who knows what I might find. And as the song goes "one thing leads to another" since I have it off and now I'm cleaning things up any other suggestions on things I could do while I examine the petrie dish.is a vacume and wire brush enough?

So you think this was the cause of the noise?
It sound much better after a good vacuuming

pull the blower resistor and shine a light in the cooler box.

Find yourself some window screen and remove the cowl grills from above the hood. Cut the window screen to fit the grills, put them back in their spots and put the clips back on. Since I've done this.. nothing has gotten in to my EVAP back.
