Glove Box noise

2016 Lexus is300 glovebox noise! Only notice when going above 65 on highway. Constant noise. Radio and air are off. Definitely from glovebox area! Any suggestions before bringing back to dealer?

Not sure of common issues on the newer models but does it still make noise when it's open?

My '02 glove box lid used to vibrate against the rubber stops.

'03 Wagon - Stock
'02 Sedan - Not Stock

Have the same issue but I have an is300 2001. At first I thought it was the coolant pipe that runs behind there but when I dropped the glove box down, I'm sure yours does the same to access behind it. Was able to see the sound was coming from one of the heater servos. Think it is going bad. And it doesn't matter if the heat or air is on or not. Also doesn't always happen. So could be something for you to check.
