    i did same as you and still noticed it, after playing and playing with it the thing i did was you know the big wire harness behind the glove box, it should be wrapped in a black plastic or whatever that material is, cut all the black plastic off the wire harness then zip tie it, i did that and the noise went away, for some reason i think the plastic wrapping was causing the wires to rub making a buzzing sound.

    I have a slight buzz coming from the passenger side of the dash. Unless I'm drunk, I am the only one driving and never have a chance to listen for the source.

    Anyway, it sounds like its coming from the glove box area.

    I have an '09' that had a buzzing sound on the passenger side of the dash. The right side of the glove box has a plastic round tube devise that has a spring mounted in it to allow the glove box to drop slowly. I took it off and messed around with it, pulling on the stem that pulls and stretches the spring. Hooked it back up and no more noise. It did make a buzzing noise when i first messed with it. Haven't heard it since.:)

    Same here. The sound has been gone for a while but I remember hitting the glove box and things in that area to get the damn buzzing to stop when I was at a stop sign or red light. I think I forgot it for a while since my radio is up about halfway when I am driving.
