It is accesed by removing the glovebox ,its located on the outside edge of the heaterbox,they are a bit tricky to replace so unless you are confident i would take it to a dealer.if you get a new one you will see how it mounts ,1 of the screws it of luck.

1998 buick regal blower motor and resistor making a click sound on high but will not turn on

You should always make sure that the parts you put back are compatible with the parts you take off. If i am not mistaken, there is another fan resistor outside under the hood, and one inside under the passenger side dash panel, if your motor is inside. One outside is for high, and the one inside is for low, medium, and medium high. If you know for a fact both speed control resistors are good, replace the switch on the dash panel. To check to see if the dash switch is not making good contact, take the switch while it is still in, and on low, high, or medium, push the switch lever to the right or left gentlely to see if it makes any contact. These year model cars are notoriuos of having fan motor issues early........

Clicking sound coming from the dash when AC fan is high and temp down low, stops when fan is lowered and temp is turned up? Can I fix this myself or how much could I expect to pay someone? 2007 Infiniti...

clicking noise could be blower motor bearing failure or blower motor fan work itself can fix.removing lower instrument cover to get to blower need turn off radio first to keep from losing code then turn off ignition remove need to disarm airbags by disconnecting the negative battery cable wait 20 minutes before working under dash when done reconnect negative battery cable.when disconnecting negative battery probably have reprogram door locks.and the ECM has relearn memory. some times you have to reprogram radio also you can fix problem but many things has to be reprogram.if first time doing mechanic work best find good mechanic or let dealership fix.

I have a clicking sound in my 05 pontiac vibe and it sounds like it is coming from the dash. When you turn the reciralate button on it will stop. I don't know if something is in the vent or what.

It could be the air temperature control actuator motor drive that makes this noise, have the dealer check it. It requires the dash to be removed to replace it and the door it moves, which is most likely sticking.

2008 ford taurus X climate control system not changing functions

I have the same car and just fixed the exact same problem you just described.
It is NOT a vacuum problem. The blend door is electronically controlled my a small motor under the dash, to the right of the steering column. The clicking is coming from a stripped gear in that small motor unit.
On my Taurus X, what caused the motor to fail was the blend doors (which open and close depending on what your vent setting is on) getting stuck. That caused the motor gears to strip out and make a clicking sound every time the automatic climate control tried to move the blend doors.
The fix required a substantial amount of the dashboard to be taken apart. The blend doors were re adjusted and the motor control unit replaced.
I had the Ford dealership do the repair and it cost me $450. (Ouch!)
To make sure that's your problem, you can follow the clicking sound. You'll have to get on your back and look under the dash on the drivers side. Have somebody press the defrost button to cause the clicking sound. Once you find the small unit you can actually feel the gears slipping when it makes the clicking sound. It's really tight under there though and you'll probably need a flashlight.

When you move the temp. control from hot to cold there is a nocking or clicking noise. doesn't sound any thing like an air lock in the heater core. sounds more like its in the heater duct

there is a vacuum operated flap that moves in there.check and see if something is stuck,or a foreign object from the dash maybe fell inside through the defroster vents.

96 lincoln town car with climatecontrol does notturn off heat

The blend door actuator motor is located under the front center of the dash at the bottom of the windshield. It does require the removal of the dash. I have changed several of them myself. You can usually tell if it is bad by a clicking sound coming from that area of the dash. It is an electrical motor and it is a plastic gear about the size of the tip of your little finger that causes the failure.

2001 ford f150 drivers side window does not work , clicking sound

Listen real close under dash when trying other windows, and see if you don't hear faint click with them too. I'm guessing your driver side motor is tired, but perhaps a little lube and some coaching, it will come back again, otherwise door panel will have to come off to try a few things, or replace motor. It's the one that gets most used, so is most likely to give out first.
