Noise in the dash

Recommended Posts

Recently I noticed a clicking noise on the passenger side behind the dash. It can't be heard from the outside of the car, and it seems to come and go and at different speeds. Its always the same regardless of whether or not the car is moving, stopped, reving, or the air/vent/ac turned on or off.

It almost sounds like a vent or something in the dash is trying to open or move and is stuck, so the motor powering it tries to do it again. I can't figure it out, its starting to drive me nuts. When I explained it the Porsche dealer said it was nothing to worry about. Does anyone know what this might be? Or can anyone thing of any trouble shooting I can do to narrow it down? THANKS!

There is an 8 page TSB that describes how to fix all the different dash noises.

Basically, they use felt tape (2 widths), sponge rubber tape and tie-wraps.

I once could have sworn that the noise i heard from the passenger side of the dash was something under the dash.... turns out it was the passenger visor... the plastic lid for the mirror was flapping around.

Then i heard a similar noise behind me while driving, thought it was the broken push rod or chattery windscreen, it turns out it was the drivers side sun visor, again, the plastic lid cover for the mirror.

Ya, this is defiantly the passenger side. In the dash, and it happens if the engine is off (but the key is still in).. While moving, at a stop, whenever...

Hey Loren where is that TSB? I can't seem to find it :huh:
