2010 Mazda 3, recycled air control causes clacking noise from system

When starting car, or changing recycled air setting, there is loud 'clacking' coming from behind the dash panel. Sounds like air-vent/flap gear-drive is damaged. After approx. 30 seconds, the noise stops. It will begin again if the recycle air setting is changed .

SOURCE: Mazda 323 Fan Belt Noise

I have the same problem with my daughters '99 Protege es 1.8. I have replaced the belt no less than 7 times in 30k miles. It's been towed 3 of those times. Twice on rainy nights I have done road side service. Always the alternator belt. I have replaced the alternator and the water pump because I was told they may be locking up intermittently. The only thing that really made a improvement was pulling the crank pulley and sandblasting it. The rough surface drives the belt better. I got the idea from the alt. rebuild place I use, They sand blast the pulleys when they do their rebuilds. Now I get a note about every 2000 miles,"Dad my belt is singing again" and I grab the sockets and snug it up again. And yes I keep a new one in the trunk at all times. Lots of luck, CB

Sure take your buddy with you when you go so he can drive you away while they fix it but you do the talking with your buddy standing by ready to leave.

Hello there, As far as the check engine light I would think since you mentioned it shacking that your light will probably be on for a misfire, Meaning most likely you have a spark plug wire going bad. I would stop by somewhere such as Autozone for a free check to tell you why your light is on just to double check.

Your fan issue could be several different things such as the fan motor going bad or the blades could be rubbing something, that one is a little tricky without hearing it.

Good Luck and I hope this does help you some. Allen

I have a 1975 k5 blazer and it blows cold air it worked fine last year but now it only blows cold air even on the defrost setting what can the problem be and how can I fix it?


A vent flap actuator probably needs to be replaced. It's what moves your vent flaps from heat to A/C or to plain "vent air" when you change settings.

The discussion in the link includes vent flap actuators. Unfortunately, they also include the infamous no low speed fan problem too.

Your particular actuator will be a different one than they found.
They're all a absolute pain to get at because they can be well buried in the dash. I would start looking under the dash on the passenger side, that's where most of the air control is. Cannot get any air from dash vents while defrost and floor vents work fine...

Rear Floor Vent heat only


Sounds like your heater coolant hose door flap is broken or loose. May want to check behind the heater controls, if your components are mechanically operated. If electronically, may need to perform more troubleshooting before replacing this component.

My 2005 impala is only blowing heat on the passenger side of the car, the driver side blows cold air what could be the problem


Inside the venting which is located behind the dash board panel underneath. Behind temp controls and radio. Inside this venting, is a couple different flaps that move to direct air to different locaitons of the car when you change the temp settings. THe flaps can get stuck or the little actuator that moves it can become faulty and will not move the air flap. You will have to manually take apart the venting system and ind the flap and actuator and see if you can manually move it. Check actuator to make sure it is not cracked or leaky or disconnected.

1997 Buick LeSabre Limited Edition, Dash vents do not blow air


ck to see if the mode vaccum actuator is getting vaccum, you will need to test actuator with a hand held vaccum gun, if actuator has failed you will need to replace, if actuator holds vaccum and it does not move the door your door may be out of position inside case or something could hold it locked in position. you will need to check door by hand to see if it moves freely.
