Yep I hear it in my girl's car, but it is not as loud as yours. But, I didn't open the hood. I sounds more like a rubbing noise on her car for a couple seconds after car is shutdown.

Do you have the automatic parking brake enabled? If so, it's probably the sound of the electric parking brake being applied.

No it's not a sound of electric parking brake. I don't use the parking brake, only the button "P".
in the video you can hear the "Cling Cling Cling" on 2 or 3 second.

My 2019 XC 40 R-Design T5-AWD makes numerous noises after shut down. Even after 5 seconds I can hear some clicking from the body. I attributed it to some shutdown sequence which may include engaging locks, internal "parking" of a mechanical device, etc. I got used to it.

It's likely an electrically operated air dam of some kind. Often, cars will have plastic dams / flaps within the front grill that will open/close depending upon speed in order to either a) assist in warming the engine or b) increase fuel economy.

I don't speak about the electric flap that you can hear on video. I speak about the "metallic Clang, Glang" at the end of the video. same a fan who touch something

Hi,
Did you get to fix it? I'm really curious what was it. I don't believe it's normal...
Thanks

Intake valve making a metallic sound similar to metallic fan touching something (possibly metallic as well)? I don't think so to be honest..

My XC40 Recharge T5 plug-in hybrid makes a similar noise, but not just when turning off. It does it every few hours, for 2-20 minutes, including when turned off, locked, not charging, and no key is around.
They replaced the electric airco compressor, but that didn’t make any difference. Who knows what causes this?
