Thump Sound When Blower On
'08 X3 , MT - when warmed up and blower on I get a periodic ( every 3 seconds ) thump sound that seems to be coming from the rear of the engine compartment about where the blower fan would be - goes away when blower turned off.

anyone experience the same ? anyone have any thoughts on what might be causing the sound ?

thanks in advance to those who respond .

Drives me nuts.

Joylove , does your sound go away when you turn the blower off ? also, have you brought it in ( dealership or Indy ) for a diagnosis ? or have you solved it yourself ?

If I shut off the fan yes the noise stops. I'm not going to take it to a dealer, if I can't figure out what it is with the entire world at my fingertips I'm 90% sure they can't.

Did you ever figure the problem out? the exact thing started happening to my car 2 days ago and I'd appreciate any advice I can get! Thanks in advance
