Default bad A/C blower fan?

97 Ram 1500 with 5.2L, 231K miles

Today my blower motor fan started this rapid clicking sound. It gets worse the faster the fan speed selected, and is not affected by the temperature mix or vent selection. It only goes away when the fan is turned off. I'm guessing I need to replace the blower fan. Anything else I should check first, or do at the same time?

Unfortunately the only way to check out the fan is to pull it out.. but once in there you can look to make sure nothing fell in to the heater box.
