    Strange "hard drive" noise coming from behind the dashboard

    I don't have GPS or the radio with the 40gb HD, but for the last couple of days, I've been getting a clicking and whirring sound and then a thump from behind the dashboard regardless if I'm driving or not. It sounds like a hard drive. No problems driving the car and I'm taking it to the dealer on Monday, but I was wondering if anyone had had a similar problem.

    After looking into this further, it seems as though the sound has something to do with the AC/heat system and it's ability to switch vents and from recycled air to outside air. Does anyone else notice any sounds when they change their heat/ac settings?

    Jim--I haven't noticed this noise, but I haven't used the heat yet. Hopefully they can resolve it for you on Monday.

    Any CD's in the unit?
    Sometimes changers or players make noises when the spin up the CD to do a check of the player.
    Just a thought.
