i just got a very annoying noise coming from the front of the passenger footspace, its like a humming/grinding/screeching noise. it is related to the fan of the climate control i believe because when i shut the CC off, the noise stops. Fan belt possibly?

no codes have signified anything along the parameters for this problem, either.

The blower for the climate system doesn't use a belt. It's a blower wheel directly attached to a motor. Does it blow as much air as it should? If it's the blower or wheel that is bad, it will have to be replaced. The replacement job is a PITA. A bad blower won't set a code. Could it be the rear climate blower perhaps?

That is where the blower is located. Probably a bad blower motor bearing.

No, it was moved to inside the cabin at some point. It is up under the hush panel (passenger side foot well).

1998 was the last major design change for the Seville until 2004. I suspect that was when the blower motor assembly was relocated to the cabin.
