    just noticed y'day that instead of the normal air rushing noise coming out i've got a annoying wherring sound when the front air outlets are on....its not a huge noise, its just annoying the hell out of me! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    any idea how i can find out what the hell it is?! without resorting to use a bat to beat the noise out of the dash!

    Is it a kind of squeeky whine, like something rotating. You can hear it slow down when you switch off the climate control. If so I took it into the dealers and they said, it could be one of the fans inside or a loose seal on it somewhere. 'Basically we can remove the whole fan unit and have a look behind but you will have to pay for a new unit, as they tend to snap easily when taking off.'

    So I left it, it comes and goes just wear and tear of the car. A guy I know whos got an A4 has the same issue
