Rattling Noise When Heat is Turned On (HD Video Included)

Hello again everyone,


My 2015 PF with just about 25K miles starting making this rattling noise yesterday when I turned on the heat. The noise itself seems like it is coming from the radiator fan area.

Anyone encounter this before? Also, is this something the dealer will cover to repair? PF was purchased brand new, but I avoid going to them due to their horrible customer service.

Regards,
Mark

That doesn't sound good. I wouldn't let it go. You're still under warranty, so take it to a dealer and let them deal with it. You should have several dealers to choose from in your area.

Lots of video footage going all around your car, but looks like you got about 2 seconds of where the issue was, at the 35 second mark.

Either a stick caught in there or a bearing has had it.

Also i think there is a recall out to quieten the high pitch noise of your power steering pump

A TSB, not a recall.
If the customer complains about the noise, they install an isolator.

At 0:37 the fan looks like it's wobbling quite a bit. Bad bearing probably.

Update - I picked up the PF from the dealership a few hours ago after they kept it for nearly 2 days.

They have replaced the radiator fan assembly which was covered under warranty - no out of pocket cost

Oh yes, I did not take it to the dealership which I purchased from - refuse to step foot in that place, ever.
