Does it happen when the A/C or heat is on. Sometimes you can hear the motor for the fans operating but it should be happening all the time. Unfortunately unless I hear the sound I wouldn't be able to tell you where the noise is coming from. Autozone.com has a good troubleshooting section where they help you identify components by noises. Good luck. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I have the same noise. Did you ever find out what it was?

Sounds like the blower motor plain and simple. Not an expensive part, but the labor to dig into the dash could be costly. Blower motors can/will continue to operate just fine for a long time regardless of the noise. However, the noise is definitely a sign that it is beginning to wear out.
