    Re: Farting or groaning noise from climate control system

    In the upper right hand corner there is a Search box, put in "Farting Noise"
    and click on appropiate links. I'm sorry I cannot find my posts on this either.
    Good Luck, I have done this twice, one on each car.
    It worked GREAT, and Kept on working...
    The Jist of this is: what DarkMingBlueSTS, says above,
    Remove the glove box, and lube the actuator arms.
    Do IT once , and it's done.
    Have fun.

    They have also redesigned the levers.

    Lube is an easy short term fix. Replacing parts might be a bit harder but not expensive to have done.

    I lubed mine with silicon grease a couple of years ago and it's been quiet ever since.

    Good to hear it didn't need a repeat treatment.

    Where are the actuators? I took my glove compartment out yesterday and couldn't see where I'm supposed to lube. The noise is coming from a duct sorta off to the left a little.

    Turn on the ac, go through different modes, look back there for moving parts, and lube those moving parts
