Noises don't always originate from where you think they are coming from. The sounds in the passenger compartment can be deceiving. I will ask the service manager about my noise when I take it in, but I don't expect much help.
I have the same problem. The dealership replaced a valve or something on the other side of the firewall. That wasn't it. It is making me crazy, and really detracting from my overall enjoyment of the vehicle. If someone figures this out, please let us know!!!
