Default Mysterious "slide whistle" sound in '02 Camry

Yep, we have a V6 '02 Camry, and every once in a while we hear a sound
like a slide whistle. The tone is ascending.

We hear this in the cabin, and it doesn't sound like it is coming from
anywhere in particular. We only hear it if the AC or the fan is on,
but it doesn't sound mechanical, not like a belt or something
scraping. It is infrequent. Anyone have a guess?

Sounds like a leaf or something in the intake system. These can get
caught in just such a position to vibrate and make sounds.

It could also be a vacuum leak....do Toyotas use vacuum to actuate the
climate control doors like say Chrysler products? I've never had to
delve into that on a Toyota, but if they do, it's a likely place to look.

Regards,

I got the same funny sounding whistle in my '02 Camry 4 cylinder. Did you figure out what it was?
