Question about 2003 Ford Explorer
There is no heat and there is a ticking noise
Its a very common problem, its a part of the heater system called the blend door and its located inside the dash, the ticking noise is cause by the blend door motor constantly slipping on the blend door gear. these are made of plastic hence why they break. BUT there is an american (lhd vehicles) site called heater treater www.heatertreater.net and i am working with these guys and trying to get a blend door made up for rhd models. heatertreater makes theres out of metal, but it is still a painful job to replace them, taking between 4-8 hours. BUT apparently the blend door is accessible from the foot well, for more info go to the website above, they are very helpful. hope this helps.

It is called a blend door acuator problem. it is what moves the door from hot to cold or vice versa. it is usually way up under the dash and is very hard to get to.usually requires dash disassemly. do yourself a favor and take it to a mechanic. it will save you $$$ in the long run.
