Sounds like you've gotten some debris into the air box and in contact with the blower squirrel cages. Worst case you've got a trashed bearing in the blower motor. Bad news is you don't go into the dash to get to it so you're not going to get any synergy with doing this job and working on your comfort relay issue.
You get to the blower motor housing through the engine compartment by removing the cowling. This is a great DIY on how to do it.
