| | Whining Heater Fan Noise??
Had my '04 Cooper in for service yesterday, one of my complaints was the heater fan in position 1 has a constant whining noise that is noticeable most all the time in urban commuting and definitely very annoying.
Dealer advised basically along the lines of "they all do that", I think based on them checking two new Coopers in their inventory.
I did not have time to check their new cars, but I rather doubt that "they all do that", as mine did not for the first 12 odd months!
It has been doing this over the last 3 - 4 months, and one anomaly is that under weight transfer of stopping, accelerating or turning the noise is decreased somewhat until the car settles and you are either stopped or cruising steady state wherein the cursed noise returns.
Dealer service advisor claims as it has a brushless motor there is nothing that can be done.
Methinks this is akin to a load of hogwash.
Anyone out there had a similar experience?
