    Hi guys, new here. So my wife has a 2013 prius c. it has been a nice car but starting to have a few hiccups. the air conditioning will intermittently stop blowing. I never ride in car, but she advised that for the last several months her solution has been to hit the dash just above the glove compartment. It makes me think something is loose inside there. So before I start taking this dash apart, I thought i may reach out and see if anyone has had a similar issue and if so possibly a simple fix.
    thanks

    welcome!

    if it's anything like the lift back, the blower motor and circuit board are under the cabin filter behind the glove box.
    take it out, clean it and inspect all the connections. you might need a new motor or circuit board.

    first step it to replace the cabin air filter... most all problems with ventilation system develop when that filter gets clogged.

    This happened to me at about 45,000mi. It was the blower motor going bad. I bought a used one from eBay and the installation is very simple.
