Most likely the blower motor is going bad. If the motor brushes are worn it will slow down due to too much resistance between the motor contacts and brushes. When your passenger kicks the fan area it jars the motor and better contact is made, much like smacking a defective starter with a hammer to get it to work. The motor is not servicable and will need to be replaced if it is bad. Check the voltage drop across the motor when it is on high. If it is dropping battery voltage while running slowly the motor is bad. My fan on the same vehicle started doing that and I noticed when I took it out and held it upside down it would run perfect. I pulled up on the fan while hitting the shaft with a hammer thinking I could put a washer under the fan because I thought it may be rubbing? I couldn't get the fan off the shaft but noticed that it moved up the shaft a wee bit and would run perfect no matter how I turned it. I put super glue on top of the shaft and fan area and it has run happily ever after.
