I have a 2010 Fusion Sport and it has had no issues until last week. Whenever the heat is on I hear a ticking sound coming from the dash. It almost sounds like water dripping. The lower the heat is on the wrose it gets. If I blast the heat it goes away. It is supper annoying and was wondering if anyone else has had this issue. The car is under warranty so I will probably just take it in. I would love to just fix it myself and not let the hacks at the dealership start ripping off interior panels. Joe

I currently have the same issue on my 2011 SE. It sounds like the blower motor is going (had one fail on my 1999 Jeep). I'm also under warranty, so I'll be bringing it in soon. It's just annoying and I haven't had time to get to the dealer.

I have an 08 SEL and I have been through two blower motors. Might be an ongoing problem. Sometimes you may find they make a chirping noise also. Take it back to the dealer. After they order the new motor it is about a ten minute process to swap. Not a big deal. Maybe the new ones are better.

I've heard this might be an ongoing problem with the heater fans. I'd let the dealer fix it under the warranty .

Hi,
I have a clicking sound coming somewhere from the dash but it sounds closer to the windshield when the car drives over uneven pavement (especially when the passenger side wheels go over a bump or when the driver side wheels go into a pothole.
I started hearing it more often now that the temperature is extremely cold. The sound starts appearing a few minutes after leaving the relatively warm underground parking.
Since I keep my climate control on Auto, air is directed to the windshield defogger. I suspect this hot air with cold outside temperature cause some parts to expand and others to contract creating loose fittings.
I am currently looking for an automotive stethoscope to try to pinpoint the source. If anybody already figured it out, please save me the trouble and post :)
Cheers..

I have heard that same sound too, especially when the outside temp is 25 or lower. It seemed to temporarily go away if I pushed down on the front of the dash---where it meets the windshield. It seemed to go away for "good" once the car reached normal operating temperatures. I'd be interested to know if there's a solution (except for waiting for warmer weather) as well.

I've also experienced the same problem. I've owned my 2011 Fusion SEL for about two weeks now and live in MN where the temps are cold! I never had the problem the first two weeks and then yesterday the car started making the noise you both describe. I also had this problem with my 2007 Camry. I plan on contacting the dealer to see if there is a fix our if it is just a down side to the suppliers product. If you figure it out, let me know! Thanks!

[size="2"][/size]I have an annoying sound in the dash of my 2010 Hybrid. I don't remember hearing it on the way home on Friday-altough it was Friday and the radio might have been a bit loud. On Sunday when I got in the car it sounds as if there is a nut rolling around in there. I tought it was up near the windshielde but, then recognized that this might only be where the sound is escaping the dash through the defrost vents and the problem could be anywhere inside the dash. It does not seem to be related to the temp system as it does not matter if the fan is on or not. It does not seem to be as bad at lower speeds but, that might be because it occurs when I cross RR tracks of hit a pothole. I have attempted to get the vehicle at a high rate of speed and suddenly apply brakes thinking that if it is something rolling around it would do it again. It does not! I am seriously wondering if a varmit has hidden an acorn inside the dash of my car. It isn't unusual to find corn, straw, etc in the dash boards of autos out here in the country.

The most recent work on the car involved having all four tires changed. This was done about a week ago. Surely this could not have anything to do with the air pressure sensors and something being lose, could it?
