Maybe they will say it is because you park the car under the trees and bird have built nest inside your air-con duct. laugh.gif laugh.gif

Mine had the sound too but SA fixed it ! They said it is the blower motor that is making the noise. Get a new fan replaced or turn up the volume of the radio ! laugh.gif

You call it chirping sound, many of us called it the cricket sound..... but all the same. It's the aircon blower, and I had to go bang tables before they did the replacement for me, every since then the sound is gone.

Insist on it.

mine is an aveo.

think i probably was the first person in this forum to rise this issue... and i remember vividly someone actually (jokingly nevertheless) ask me to spray bygone to kill the cricket...

ok, the sound normally comes from the front passenger side air-con vent.

you can send it back to SA if you too free or you can bang table till they change one for you. otherwise, if you no time and good temper like me, just live with it and after some time, the sound will go away...

for my case, the cricket lived for 1-2 mth and after that... it died naturally and nv come back again

wont go away? hmm... mine did go away after sometime.

when i first noticed the sound, i sent the car to SA. the mechnic said there was nothing wrong and told me probably becos the parts were new = tighter so when moving, not so smooth. he applied some grease and that solved the problem.... temporarily.

the 2nd time i went back with the same problem (probably like 5k km after the first time), he again said no problem after checking for 1 WHOLE DAY. grease again.

the thrid time i went, bang table and made everyone unhappy but they still refused to change the blower as there is nothing "technically wrong" with the component. grease again.

after the 3rd time, i gave up on them liao. decided to run the aircon until the problem completely breaks down the blower then go back and claim warranty.... but to my surprise, the problem actually disappears and till today, no more problem liao. and yes, the aircon still functions fine.

so i LL but to conclude that the mechnic was right. there is nothing technically wrong with the blower and that the sound could be caused by new parts smoothing themselves out... and like he said, the problem did go away by itself and without causing any real problem for me.

anyhow, that's my experience and may not necessarily be the same as others...
