Having problems with your 2003 Lincoln Town Car ?
I have a 2003 Lincoln Town Car. Iturned on the a/c and there is a loud noise coming from the passenger side where the heater and ac are located. There is also a strong smell. Any suggestions?
That is where the blower motor is located. It could be that there is some debris (leaves, road dirt etc..) in the blower motor. I'm not sure what kind of smell you are referring to but if that car has sat for an extended period of time I have seen small rodents get into the duct work and build nests in areas such as the blower motor. I would recommend not running the fan (so as not to damage it) and getting it to shop where they can get into the blower motor assembly and see whats stuck in there.
The air blower(squirrel cage) is located there also and things can get into it. I have twice had a mouse get into mine. One time he filled up the area with dry dog food he was hoarding for winter. The food made the fan off balance and made a noise. There wasn't a smell this time. But another time a mouse had gotten in it and I just happened to cut it on at the right time(wrong for him) and the fan cut his head off. After a few days you could smell the dead animal smell and I finally figured out where it was coming from. You have to take the fan out to clean it out if this is your problem.
