    Hey,
    On my 02 1.9TDI A4, strange noises occur! Sounds like vents opening and closing. Seems to happen pretty much all the time, even when I turn the car off for a short while after.
    Is this normal???

    the noise is the flaps adjusting to divert air where you want it to go this should only happen when you change the air direction on the aircon unit

    Might be your heater controller! the m8s started palying up and when he replaced the dash control unit it sorted itself out!
