    Is this noise coming from inside the truck or from under the hood?

    Mine had a noise under the hood whenever the AC compressor was engaged. Turned out to be a loose alternator mounting bolt. The washer under the bolt head was vibrating on the bolt.

    If it's inside, could be a leaf or something that's made it's way past the cabin air filter. My cabin filter collects leaves like crazy.
