Re: buzzing noise behind glove box

it must be a relay or a blend door motor i'd guess. i would get the glovebox etc out of the way and try to pinpoint the noise.

Hi mate
You could have a vacuum leak. The default position for the air distribution system when there's no vacuum is the windscreen. See if it changes to this position when you accelerate hard (which is the moment when you have less engine vacuum), if this happens and the noise you hear is a hissing then you'll know for sure.

Re: buzzing noise behind glove box

You could have 2 separate problems there. There is definitely a vacuum leak that you need to find and repair, and I would start by looking at the vacuum lines on the engine side. If these are ok, check the connectors and hoses that go through the firewall and then the back of the switches. The buzzing noise could also be a faulty relay or solenoid. Don't assume that the noise is coming from inside the car unless you're 100% sure, it could also be coming from the engine bay and travelling through the firewall. By the way, which engine do you have in your truck?
