Vent Acuator on 1994 Chevy Silverado

I have a clicking noise right before and just after I turn off my engine in my 1994 Chevy Silverado. From what I was able to find out it is my vent actuator. I have never replaced one of these before. Can anyone give me some directions and let me know how difficult it is. Thanks.

    When you say vent actuator do you mean the blend door motor?

I had the same problem and changed it myself. It was a job but can be done yourself. Some call it a Recirculation door actuator, some call it a blend air door actuator. If you look under the dash behind the glove box all the to the fire wall you can see it.There is 2 screws 1-top 1- bottom which you can see easily, the top one you cant see from bottom you have to take out the glove box to see. There is a plug that goes to the actuator, you can actually just unplug it to stop the noise, that will fix the noise and I know some people dont replace the actuator they just leave it like that. I had to go buy a air socket wrench to replace, the smallest one I can find. I wouldnt have done the job without it. Good luck hope this helps. Steve

I have a 1994 Chevy Silverado and every time I turn on the ignition, the knocking noise begins from under the dash somewhere. If I remove the fuse to the a/c/heater it doesn't make a sound when I

Try starting the truck so it makes the noise.
Then switch the air control to "fresh".
If noise stops, it is probably the motor that closes flap to recycle the cab air.
It would be found under the dash, under the glove box, & would need to be replaced.
