Air Cond/Heater fan/blower making whistling noise

My smart is a week old. I have been noticing that the blower/fan for the heater/air conditioner makes a whistling sound. Also, if I turn the fan off while parked or slow moving, the noise goes away. But if I am going 40 or above, I get the noise. The higher the speed, the louder, with or without the fan on - indicating that it is not the fan.Anyone had this prob?Tks for any help.RaySee More
