Does anyone notice their center vent making a subtle popping or creaking sound when the car is hot inside? Mine does it when I pull up to a stop...and take off...seems to subside once the ac kicks in and it subsides a bit...anyone know how to stop it if you have it? I dont remember it ever doing this before, but then again this is the first summer I've had the car.

Me here, but I haven't paid attention if it rattles when hot or cold.
Last time I got a vent light burned, I took the whole vent out and was shaking it to see if I could hear where the sound was coming from, but had no success.
I'm still not sure if it is the vent itself, it seems to be it, but could be something else inside.
I'll try removing the vent and running the car.
I'll post my observations later.

I also removed the vent for creaking noises and used electrical tape on any plastic on plastic surfaces. No creaking so far :thumbup:
Thanks for proving that this trick works. I was thinking of doing same thing. :thumbup:
