    Mine was getting pretty noisy a couple of years ago, so I had a dealer replace it for around $200. I wasn't interested in going even a minute without AC here in Texas.

    I wish I could find a blower with some balls, my wife's Fiesta's "blows" mine away. To even feel air coming out it has to be on high, and even then it's only like having the Fiesta on like 1. My Tundra easily has the worst A/C system I have ever experienced in a vehicle, and i've owned Dodges! The blower sucks, i'm afraid to turn the vent knob for fear of breaking something, half the time I can't even switch it back to the dash vents and I have to reach under the dash and "help" it out...My 07' F-150 had electric actuators for all of that, you would think Toyota would have chosen a more modern A/C system, instead of the stone age crap they put in our trucks!

    You've clearly got some issues with yours. I would drop the motor, clean the fan cage, and reach up into the intake tube and make sure it isn't obstructed. Based on your description of the difficulty you're having moving the fan direction knob, you might also have one or more redirect vanes in there stuck.

    Oh it's got issues alright. I've already dropped the blower and it was clean as could be. No obstructions could be felt anywhere. The vent issue would probably require me to remove the entire dash to fix. According to my service history, the previous owner took it to the dealer for the problem and in their notes it says "Knob still hard to turn" or something like that. When I bought the truck the vent adjuster was sheared off behind the knob. Oh well, just another perfectly engineered Toyota product, right?

    Edit: Apologies if I sound a bit angry. Pisses me off that Toyota would choose such a stone age system to ruin an otherwise awesome truck.

    This guy has a video on removal / installation for the blower motor. The motor is removed from a Sequoia but it is the same in the Tundra. Just for anyone interested....
