Looks like my blower is going dry, starting to make noise. Intermittent so far, but definitely getting to the point where I need to replace.

Looking over the market, I can buy a TYC for $42, a Trumark for $46 or a Motorcraft for $123.

Has anyone else replaced their blower with one of the off brands and are you happy with the decision?

That happened on my 06 Fusion.  I took the motor apart and a bunch of chewed up black stuff came out and the noise stopped.

Hadn't thought of that. Thanks.
Think I'll pull it out and take a look. But really think it's dry bearings due to squeal.

Probably.  Mine was more like a paper/plastic ticking sound - like a playing card in a bicycle spoke (for you old farts).

Oky-dooky. Puller the blower and it appears fine. No rubbing, on tightness, blower wheel does nit continue spinning, comes to an abrupt stop as it slows down. Don't know if that's attribable to a shaded pole motor or dry bearings. No noise when I sounds it however. Think I'll wait to change it; until it really gives up the ghost.

Decided to go Motorcraft as the others had bad ratings, "poor quality", "broke after a month", "noisy", "no air compared to oem", etc.

One item of curiosity however. Had to remove an acoustic trim panel before I could get to the blower. The trim panel had an electrical connector running to a sensor (looked like a optical sensor) pointed towards the floorboards. Any idea as to what this is? Couldn't find anything in the service manual.

Ah ha, figured it out. It's part of the mood lighting. You know, when you want to drive with purple lights at you feet? Ohhhhhhh yeaaaaaaa!
