    You can try the air can (I would but I don't have one)and see if it works)

    Last time I pulled one from the headliner it didn't look easy to clean without compressed air just be careful of the thermistor in front of the sensor opening

    Are you guys talking about the little speaker looking grill above your left ear on the headliner? Mine makes noise as well! So your saying to pull down the headliner a bit and clean it with canned air and that will fix the annoying sound? If that's the case I will do this tomorrow, I hate that damn sound, I usually just turn my stereo up louder.... ;-)

    That's the one... I first thought it was something to do with on star and was just going to remove it, but realized that would virtually eliminate climate control...

    I'm thinking I could just spray the air right into the vent.. And if that doesn't work then I'd take down the headliner.. Which I really don't want to do

    Just be sure to spray in the middle of the sensor as that is where the hole is on the sensor unit itself(and don't stick the hose in to far)

    Good point I'd hate to damage it and then have to replace it
