Fan bearings wearing down? Does it happen if you turn off the fans? Can you be more specific about how/when it happens?

Yes, if you provide more details you will probably get more (and more helpful) comments. Under what conditions does the noise occur?

tapping or ticking noise

hi again everyone,this noise seems to come from the base of windscreen,just in front of the left hand side of the heater slot ,the noise seems to be worse when you drive over bumps or bad road surfaces,its sounds like something metal lightly tapping the glass.....wierd,frustrating & annoying.

how do we know it is not the dreaded windscreen rattle, my 2003 nrg had it, even though the dealer said the second version had been cured of it, anyway, they took it apart padded it out and put it all back, no rattle since....
