03 Freelander Heater Blower Problem

Hello....anyone Out There Can Point Me In The Right Direction For This Problem? The Heater Blower Fan Was A Little Problematic A Few Months Ago Where It Was Whiny And Had A Zing To It That Came And Went. It Got Quieter Over Time But As Of Recently It Seems Like The Motor Seems To Be "bogging" Down. If You Put It On 4 The High Setting It Is Alot Slower Than That Or It Will Blow At The Speed For About 30 Seconds Slowly Putter Out. Let It Sit For A While And It Will Do The Same Thing. Is There Any Kind Of Relay That Would Be Causing This Or Is It Just The Blower Itself? I Was Curious As I Had The Coolant Leak Problem In This Vehicle From The Heater Core, Which I Had Repaired And Was Wondering If Leaking Coolant Over Time Fouled The Blower Motor. Any Information Would Be Greatly Appreciated.

There is a blower motor resistor pack on the heater box near the firewall just above the blower motor. Disconnect the wiring clip undo 2 screws, pull the pack out. It should have 3 exposed resistor coils. Possibly they are clogged up with dried/encrusted coolant. I've just replace a new heater core too... a time consumig job. You should however be able to remove the blower motor and/or the resistor pack with out removing the facia or heater unit, just a bit awkward negotiating clutch and brake pedals.

philsch..thanks for the reply. My mechanic had about 13 hours into replacing the heater core. Glad to hear this may not be as time consuming if it turns out to be the problem.
