ticking sound coming from Glove box area?

I have a 2006 Toaureg and have been noticing a strange sound coming from what appears to be the glove box area or area near the shifter? It sort of sounds like a wooden pinwheel being spun. kluck,kluck,kluck,kluck
This usually happens during the first 2-3 miles and also when i am turning on an on ramp.
Has anyone else experienced this sound? And if so does anyone know what could be causing this? I imagine it is benign but the sound is annoying.
