If the sound is generally a high-pitch whirling, buzzing, gurgling or "electronic" sound emanating from the drivers side vicinity (foot pedal or cluster area) and it is somewhat intermittent, then it is likely your "cover with blower."

The bearings get dry and begin to squeak, creating this noise.
