Strange noise in overhead console of W140

My 1997 S-320 has recently developed a noise in the speaker looking type thing ion the overhead console. The noise sounds like a little buzzing. It starts when the ignition is turned on and shuts off when the ignition is turned off and runs while the car is running.

I put a paper clip in there and the noise stopped. I felt the paper clip hit something as if it was spinning, and this topped the noise. then I listened closer with the paper clip in and the noise sounded like a litte motor was running. I removed the clip and the noise began again.

Waht could this be. What are some solutions
