Fan/Whistling Noise / Cabin air filter replacement

I found this and thought it might be useful if you have this issue on your truck.
Not sure this is the best place for this, move it as needed.

By the way , how can someone delete a thread that they posted?


Edit by 08Canyon 10/31/2015
The cabin air filter discussions from December 2014 through October 2015 have been blended as a mega-thread. I probably have not found all of them but I did find 8-10 discussions.
If anybody reads the posts between #1 and #91 it may now come across as confusing since they are shuffled into the deck by date. You will also encounter many broken links within cfans.com as many of the linked discussions are now contained here. Links to external sites are unaffected by the merges, however.

The title has been altered and the first post is edited to include keywords that may benefit a faster search.

Happy cabin air filter fix/replacement

Glad they added one to the new trucks but still makes no sense a to why the 1st gens never got one.

No kidding. There are some great pieces of information in the October issue on the Canyon/Colorado.

All new owners should read, especially if you are putting a Tonneau Cover on your truck.

^Wait, this tapered bedside thing is new with the 2015 Colorado? As in previous GM trucks weren't designed like this?

Fan/Whistling Noise Behind Nav Panel Inceases with Fan Speed

New 15 Canyon. 400 miles so far.
Loud fan noise, kind of a whistling noise, behind the instrument/Nav panel when fan is turned on. Makes no difference if A/C is on vs vent. Increases and gets louder with fan speed. It is pretty loud and annoying.
Dealer is a ways away, any ideas?
Love the truck except this.

There is an issue with the cabin air filter. Service bulletin already issued on it I believe. Dealer can probably fix pretty quickly I would assume.

could be related to a cabin air filter, but whistling noise in HVAC is usually related to a missing or misaligned seal between case sections or at a mode valve door ... depending on location, this level of work could require a lot of disassembly behind the dash and would be beyond capability of some dealer shops to tackle. Definitately get a second opinion from GM before allowing the dealer shop to take anything apart.

The filter door also has a seal; need to look at it to make sure it isn't cut, missing, or not fully flat and continuous around the perimeter

Thanks guys, I decided to go to the dealer today to get it checked out.
Thanks for the link- it would be nice if it was that easy.

I think would be a good idea to create a new sub-forum called Issues & Resolutions (or something like that) where there would be a specific place for owners to report issues (like this one) and then follow up with the fixes that their dealer used to fix that problem. Doable?

AC Fan Speed High Pitch Whistle

Just bought a 2015 GMC Canyon and noticed today that if I turn the fan speed all the way up @ 67 degree setting, a loud, high pitched whistle noise resonates from the glove compartment. If I open the glove compartment, the noise becomes louder. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks.

It's been mentioned a few times on this forum that the cover for the in cabin air filter is causing this whistle. Remove and reinstall fixes it.

That is a leaking filter cover door; either it is not fully seated or the sealing foam has a gap in it. Easy dealer fix or a basic DIY if you're so inclined to give it a try before going to dealer.

A low quality control item with an easy fix. Maybe after 20,000 warranty claims, GM will train Clyde to install the air door and filter properly.
