I have a noise which has always been present but isn't causing any issues…I am just curious to what it is.

When I turn off the ignition or when the key is at MAR and is switched off, there is a sound that can only be described as Pac Man munching something three times… like munch munch munch.

…Any ideas (and I am not going mad)
:confused:

If the noise is at the front and the car Phase 2 or 3, turn the heater to speed 0 and switch the a/c off and see if the noise goes away.

If the noise is from the back, possibly fuel pump.

Dont know about ph2/3 but on ph1s when the ignition is turned off the air recirculation flap closes, makes a faint whirring noise on mine.

Mine a 1999 model makes a similar type noise, we have nicknamed it the duck, as it like a funny quacking sound?
Think it from somewhere near the idle control thingy
cheers
