    I have recently started to notice a terrible grinding sound that I can hear very well from my front passenger wheel. I have noticed the sound can be produced on the following conditions.

    1. Car is on, Climate/HVAC is On
    2. After sitting with car on, and climate on for about ~10 minutes without moving is when the sound starts.
    The sound will not happen when:
    1. Car is on, climate/HVAC is off
    2. Car is off
    3. Car is driving and climate/HVAC is on

    My X has been to the SC about 9 times. I hate bugging them, mostly because they are two hours away and go out of their way to take care of the vehicle, but this very much concerns me. I just got the vehicle back two weeks ago.

    Any ideas? Anyone had this before? Maybe something a ranger can assist with?

    Thank you all for your help.

    It's likely that your A/C lines are crossed. It's a known issue, and your service center should have a bulletin about it.
