Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

There are a handful of things that could be making noise depending on what you're actually hearing. It could be an actuator in the heater box, the blower motor itself, a door issue; if you were given a $1,700 estimate to repair the issue then it sounds like they're needing to remove the dash and heater box.

Can you describe the noise?

You had the problem diagnosed in person at your dealer?
