Hello everyone, I bought a secondhand 3008 two weeks ago.

If I set the fans to a higher speed, besides the normal air noise I hear a second sound that's coming somewhere behind the dashboard. It sounds like an electric motor or something, and it's quite loud. When I bought the car, I don't remember if that sound was that loud or not.

Here is the video with my issue

Do the fans in your 3008s sound the same as in the video or is it something wrong with mine?

Thank you

Hi. Did you get to the bottom of this? What was the cause? Mine has just started doing the same thing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Mine, recently owned, authorized used 5008 year 2021 had the similar sound when turn on the windscreen defrost first week I got it. The sound was annoying but I kept it running cos I needed to defrost… surprisingly after a few weeks, the sound is getting normal. Not sure it was pollen filter not sat right or what…

I have similar strange sound coming from dashboard area. 2018 Peugeot 3008 GT Line 1.6 HDi diesel. The only way I can describe it is that it sounds like a 'howling' noise and it definitely wasn't there when I got the car in 2021. Can hear it when driving along and sitting in normal driving position but if I lean forward towards the steering wheel it sounds quite loud. Can even hear it above the radio! Not too noticeable below 20mph but anything above this speed and it's there at a constant very noticeable volume which doesn't seem to get louder at a lot higher speed. It's fairly constant above 20mph and it's a really annoying noise. Been doing it for about the past year or so. Can still hear it when the air con and blower fan is OFF so nothing to do with that. Dealer has checked all over for any air noise from a faulty seal etc around windscreen/door mirror/engine compartment and so on but found nothing untoward and I would think if it was anything like that, it would get louder the faster I go but that's not the case. They changed the pollen filter first, no different, and then thought it was wheel bearing noise and changed front offside wheel bearing but no different and noise is still there. At that point they said they couldn't help further until the noise gets louder so they have a better chance of identifying where the noise is coming from.
