Hello Daniel,

there are 2 things behind dashboard that can make a wind like noise. First is the economy gauge in the instrument cluster. It uses vacume and if the rubber hose connection behind the cluster is off, you will hear a noise and the economy gauge will not work. The second source is the headlight adjustor nearby headlight switch. The rubber house split thing located behind the brake booster supplies the vacume to economy gauge and a headlight adjuster.
My car's heating system buttons don't use vacume but yours may.

Hope this will help.
