I had to do this a couple months ago and I used a members post with pictures, a tiny piece of a leaf and when the blower was on high speed it sounded horrible. This will help a lot of members.

What was wrong with the blower motor? I ask because my 2014 has the worst blowing heat in a car I ever had. I was thinking its just cheap.

You are not the first to mention this, but I have no such issue with my 2014. It has one of the most effective heating and cooling systems I have ever owned since 1977. We just had some -17 Celsius weather here and my Altima has been toasty warm.

You may have an uncommon problem with either your ducting or fan...I suggest you have your dealer address this under warranty.

Is your Altima the S model with no vent in the rear?

Mine is the SL as shown in my signature line. Perhaps I am spoiled with the heated seats and heated steering wheel. I usually drive alone or with just one passenger...so I have not needed to worry about the rear passenger vents in the centre console. I will note that even on the coldest days the windows do not frost up like in my Jetta TDI.

Haha. Lucky you. I didn't even notice the vents was missing in the rear. I was thinking who does that. Of all the things to go cheap on. I guess if it aint dual climate zone, Nissan didn't care.

Something I have noticed is that in slow traffic where the car is idling a lot the air will blow cold, on the really cold days. This is the V6 3.5 engine. As soon as I up the revs. a bit the air changes to warm or hot. I've chalked this up to the fact the engine is idling at about 700 rpm. Never had a problem with windows fogging up though.

My 2014 did get leaves in the blower and it was really noisy on high speed.
