Unknown wind type noise

Asked by Dec 16, 2015 at 08:21 PM about the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Noise in front of passenger seat sound like wind. It is the same when stopped
or driving - does not change. Comes from right front. Just started recently, car
is just over 3 years old very low mileage. Can this be related to under-hood
hoses? Tried a/c and other controls on/off with no difference. Possible A/C
damper stuck open? Any ideas before I spend big bucks for mechanic.

It is probably the inside cabin pressure finding the least point of resistance to release the built up inside cabin pressure. Crack a window open and then does the noise goes away?

So the noise does not go away when you turn off the blower motor fan?

I tried blower switch again - this time sound stopped. I will see what develops. Hopefully switch or motor are not defective. Sorry about delayed response. No accounting for holiday season etc. Thanks.
