Most likely rhat the heater valve coming fro. The motor side is either not opening fully or is partially clogged with ryst due to no antifreeze in the system or heater radiator partialy blocked.

If wind is not blowing very faint at high speed setting, check fan condition and filter.

The pollen filter is most commonly located in the rain tray. Normally one has to remove the rain shield which is clipped onto the firewall and the windscreen. (Be careful not to break it.) Then there is normally a box on the passenger side, with a lid that can be unclipped, to access the pollen filter.

Once you've changed the filter, if you still get a lot of blower noise, but little actual air, then the ducting inside the dashboard has probably come loose.
