    Might be your head light motor gear stripped.... it will make a plastic grinding noise when you turn the car off. see if the noise is coming from either head light.l

    Pull the AIR PUMP fuse under the hood while it's making the noise...normally not running when the car is hot though.

    so the air pump does not run after the car has been driven. the only time that I hear is when i get out of the car after it has been driven. If the air pump is only on while the car is warming up them that probably is not it.
