The blower is under a plastic plate secured with screws on the top of the firewall. It is a fairly easy replacement. Be sure to put some penetrating oil on the four screws holding the blower in as they rust and can break easily.

You might have a broken "cage" causing the noise rather than the motor.

Rebuilt units are readily available from Partshop and other suppliers.
