Touch screen noises?

I don't remember my touch screen making any noise when I first got the car so I can only assume that a fan is getting a little noisy.

but damn if it doesn't sound like a hard drive in there (which I would love to grab an image of using dd)

Is everyone else's touch screen / center console silent? Anyone know if it is an SSD or a traditional HDD? If SDD I doubt I could get on the SATA interface as it is likely built onto the board but an HDD that's a different story.

The MCU has a cooling fan--might be failing. Contact Service. FWIW, the instrument display also has a fan. Mine started making noise about a year ago--entire instrument display replaced. No problems since.

This being the first hot season since ownership, I've noticed a console fan whirring quietly when I get into the hot car in a parking lot, sun shining directly on the console. So ya, it's hot.

I'm in the process of making custom-fit window sun shades.. there's a lot of glass to cover up everywhere.
