May go away with time depending on how hard the seal is from the factory.


Like "other" things on the smart, may just need some lube

Directional whistling?

Bored whilst (yes, another gratuitous "whilst" ) sitting in rush hour traffic, I played with the selector a bit. I found that I could make the ventilation system whistle if I put the air flow direction selector at a couple of "inbetween-vents" postions - at about 5 o'clock and at about 8 o'clock. Everywhere else it just made normal flow noises. Perhaps this means something to someone who understand how the system works. Is there a directional guide flap or some such that could be the source?
