Thumping on Passenger side

Hey all,

I called Tesla the other day becuase randomly both LED headlights started to dim(half lit half not) about 6 hours apart from each other, however, the next morning I opened the door I started to hear this clunking noise coming from the passenger side air vents / glove box. It will thump for almost approximately 10 seconds each time the vehicle receives power after getting being out of the vehicle. It also doesn’t matter wether the air was on or off before getting out and back in. I called service and they aren’t sure what it is and it’s going to be another two weeks before they can get me in. Any ideas?
