Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe
This sounds like the same problem I am having, however I am visiting my son 8 hours away from home. Can I make the trip home with damaging the car further and get it repaired with my normal mechanic?
Not hearingf the noise and not knowing how handy you are here goes. In the heater box there are two different acuators that control the angles of the air doors in the heater. One of these motors is trying to move but can't ( air door stuck, ink pen down in it. Peices of store bag sucked up in dash, rust) The motor can sometimes be tricked into not making noise. try all the different positions of the heater controls. You may find a position that the door is at the place the controls are asking it to be and it'll stop. Next would be to take the cover above the passenger feet out and look up in there with the car turned on and try to figure which part is making the noise. unplug the wire on the motor making the noise, and then see if the controls will let you use the heater or air to get you home. These motors are sometimes hard to get out even for those of us that do it all the time and the auto parts stores have some of the more common failing ones as they sell well.
