there's a thread on here somewhere about it. basically the noise is from the blower fan being unbalanced

edit: here's one thread

Yep my 2010 has the same prob, there is a fix on here DIY, but you cab get the dealership to fix it also, from what I understand there is a little ball that needs to be re-lubricated

nope, they're never allowed in the cab, only the box - they shed too much.

I also have this. I've seen a variety of fixes posted, some seem to be more successful than others.

As Do I!! very annoying. I actually took it to the Dealer a few days ago. They said its covered, but i just had to schedule an appointment. Bringing it back to the dealer is a big inconvenience. Takes too long !!!

Yeah thats my biggest problem is the inconvenience of making the appoitment, bringing the truck in, getting to work, getting off of work to pick up the truck. I bought a new truck to aviod taking it to the garage so often as my old ford. I guess I'll give the D.I.Y a go

According to Benca1 whose dad owns the dealership, this is due to something with a screw on the fan. My 09 does it as well and I know his is also. I'm having mine replaced. It's a warranty thang.

Yep, I have it also. I had it replaced under warranty and the new one isn't much better. Good luck with it, it is annoying.
