Warning....utter speculation.....

I only notice that sound when the radio is off and everything is almost silent...I heard it last night when backing out of a parking spot inside a parking garage (stealth and XM silent since no signal). It does sound a bit like a rope/cord being pulled over the edge of a table or something.

My guess is that there is some sort of gear mechanism that's associated with the VSC and, in Japan, the auto-park system. I do not know that for certain, but I certainly don't think it's anything to worry about.
