Interior noise symptoms:
On cold Wisconsin days, when the car is started, and not warmed up for an extended period (over 5-10 minutes), it will emit a noise from the dashboard (upper driverside dashboard above guage cluster or coming within from guages).

The noise is a whining sound that is:
-speed sensitive (the faster I go, the faster and louder and higher pitch the whine)
-cold weather only/till the car warms up thoroughly
-not effected by heater/climate controls
-will go away after about a minute of highway driving, or 4 or 5 minutes of city driving.
-not come back until cold start again

This is the most annoying whine one could only imagine. The sound is revolting and loud.
I have a gut feeling it has something to with the heater?? Perhaps not.
Any suggestions? This Subie is hi mileage!
Appreciated!

Check your seal around the front of the window. Mind does this as well, but my problem is that the window won't stay aligned. I think this summer I am going to take the interior pannel off and try to fix it. I think my problem will be the actual window lifting unit.
