Thank you for the suggestions to pull the blower motor!! I took it apart (took literally less than 3 minutes after watching a YouTube video). Turns out there was a tiny leaf that had gotten into the fan, probably when they replaced the filter. I put it back together and there was no more noise!!

Thanks again everyone!! Saved me a trip to the dealership.
Great job. Happens a lot. Glad to see you got it fixed. Me being me would be sending these right to the manager that insisted it wasn’t them.

Haha I'll be giving him a call first thing in the morning. Should have been an easy 3 minute fix!

And yeah it's hard to believe that such a tiny leaf was causing the issue.

Thanks again everyone!
