VEHICLE – 2015 Fiat 500X

ISSUE – Whistling noise from glovebox area

DIAGNOSIS & SOLUTION:
We have a 2015 Fiat 500X in for service and the customer has complained of a whistling noise coming from the glovebox area. We have heard an intermittent whistling noise from the glovebox but have not found the cause of the noise. Can you help?

Yes, from the whistling noise you have described we are aware of one fix for the Fiat 500X. The whistling noise is due to excessive clearance between the glovebox air flow adjustment disc and the glovebox liner, allowing air to bypass the glovebox air flow adjustment disc. Fit a modified glovebox air flow adjustment disc, available from Fiat parts department, to the glovebox liner. This should rectify the fault.
