Hey your missing out on a great money making opportunity. Next to the spare tire kit you could sell an emergency blower motor fix it kit on ebay. A rubber mallet in a plastic box.So I didn't have any problems with the blower fan on my first Niro. I did have problems with it on both of my Toyota Prius. My solution for it was to smack the dash on the passenger side. The blower fan was behind the glove box. I assume that is where it is on the Niro too as it would make the most sense. Try slamming your glove box or smacking the dash. I would also intentionally hit the rumble strips on the side of the highway if you have those near your starting point. I eventually replace the Prius blower fan for about $130 and it was pretty simple. Hope these suggestions work for kia, as I was happy they worked on the Prius.
