Fan noise behind dash

I have a new noise coming from behind the dash - like a fan that is really unhappy! If i press and prod around above the hazard switch then i can get it to stop for a bit - at first we thought it was the DVD drive in the RNSe spinning. It happens almost all the time - whether the climate control is on or off, and carries on when the engine and ignition are switched off.

Has anyone had that before?

One of the heater solenoid motors is out of adjustment, it will constantly try to correct itself. Drop the knee bolster if it's on the drivers side, glove box out for passenger side.

Readjustment can only be done with VCDS or VAG-COM, you can replace although these are quite expensive (new) for all they are.

I get a fan type sound when I switch off on my B7. I thought it was connected to the glovebox cd player.
