Question Noise from a/c blower....? Need your help

Hi all. Just wanted to ask how to access the A/C blower in the Fleetwood? There is this noise coming from the glove box area when I turn the a/c on. Sounds as if the fan is hitting something (say a leaf, for example. Maybe hitting a piece of electrical tape ). It does not happen all the time. However, when it does happen this is what I notice: let's say the noise is there while driving or when I am at a full stop. If I take off quickly (accelerate) then it goes away. It also goes away when I make a turn. Is this related to the blower? Is it accessible after removing the glovebox in a Fleetwood? Having the A/C fixed now with all new components and would like to take care of this ASAP. Your feedback will be appreciated

Thanks

You won't need but the last pic here for reference to the orientation of 3 little screws you're hunting for, to drop the housing with motor and blower.

To get at them you'll remove the kick panel, lower dash conceal and maybe the sill plate. All easy screws. The housing screws are gonna be 5.5, 6 or 7mm head, and you'll find as I have anything from a square block of foam, leaves, twigs, dead mice (lucky if no babies or too much poop). Lysol the whole thing and give motor 2 drops of 3-in-1. There's a little foam donut around the motor cooling tube - usually rotted or gone. Make up a new one to optimize volume/velocity.
