noise from dash


Recommended Posts

Jack I'm not to sure but I have a sound coming from the speedo area as well. Except mind sounds like a squeaking rub. This noise occurs when going down a bumpy road, but it definetly sounds like it is coming from inside the car by the driver side dash area.

I have the same noise, too! I dives me nuts!

Apparantly, I believe its the fan bearing in the in-car temp sensor fan. If you look to the right of your fog light switch - you will see a a square piece of louvered vents the size of a quarter. In there is a fan that sucks in the cabin air for the temperature sensor to measure in order to operate your HVAC accurately.

When cold, the bearing will make noise and then it goes away...

You can remove the fan and loub the bearing or replace it altogether. To lube it you may have to drill a hole into the housing. I haven't fixed mine yet - but will do in the spring.

Good luck....
