    When I turn on my cabin heater fan, it sounds like the air flow is restricted or plugged - and small dust and crap comes out of the vents on the dash, etc....sounds gets more restricted sounding as I turn the fan on high, where it's actually rather loud, like a lud low hum....the air is coming out, but not freely.

    I was able to remove the glove compartment, but need advice, pointers to a manual, or other hints what I should be looking for

    Any help appreciated !

    Here is a link to the blower motor removal in the fsm. You can look through that and see that removing the blower motor is very easy. I took mine out and cleaned the squirrel cage. You can also get to some duct work at that time to clean it.

    This is a link to the complete fsm for your reference. Just scroll down to you model and you can down load the fsm.

    Do you hear your mode doors moving when you change from dash to floor and such?
