Question about 2005 Ford Explorer
When I turn the knob from cold to hot or hot to cold, I can hear the blend door or damper sounds like it's slamming shut but it's actually getting stuck. It will make a slamming sound until it finally moves into the correct position, then I can hear clicking like it is not fully in position

I ended up taking the vehicle to the dealer. The 'blend door' actuator had gone bad (stripped gear?). $66.00 for the part over $330 for labor. The console and part of the dash had to come out.

Global 1207 is right. It's your blend door actuator which is sticking. Probably the plastic teeth on the cog inside are worn. It is white plastic and is located behind your radio. It controls the opening of your blend door from A/C (closed) to heat (open). Buy a Ford Windstar radio removal tool from any parts store (less than $10.00) remove the radio. You will then have access to the actuator. At the bottom right you will see a little plastic wheel with an indented square. Find a long flat head screwdriver that wil fit diagonally into the square and turn it clockwise slowly. The blend door should pop open and heat will enter the cabin. Finally when you have the time replace the unit. They sell for about $75.00 at the dealer or cheaper elsewhere. Good luck. This worked for me.

that clicking noise you hear is likely a relay in the fuse panel that needs to be replaced. the easiest way to find out which relay it is would be to put you finger on each relay as you actuate the device not working. once you locate the clicking relay replace it . to reset the computer just unhook the battery for about ten minutes. if you have an anti theft radio make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it before you unhook the battery.
