Clicking under dash

I started my car this morning and I heard a clicking noise under the dash on the passenger side. I thought maybe it had something to do with the fan blower but even when i shut it off i can still here it. I watched all the guages and everything else seems to be ok. I even checked the windshield wipers thinking it may have something to do with that. what could this be?

    Constant knocking coming from the passenger glove box, I have removed the filter and cleaned it, you can see something hitting the foam but I cannot see anything or feel anything when looking through the gap where the filter goes, it is really annoying and started out of nowhere. does not matter if fans are on starts as soon as power is on the engine turned on makes no difference.

Turn the fresh air/ recycled air switch on and off and see if it goes away. Most likely it's that controller.

There is a servo that opens and closes an air valve in the heating system. It's a two wire connection and presumably the only way the computer knows when the valve is open or closed is to sense high (stall) current in the servo motor. This is a poor design because it stresses a plastic secondary gear in the servo and can cause a couple teeth to break off. Now the gears skip (making the clicking sound) and the motor never stalls so computer never shuts it off and the clicking continues. It's an expensive part (of course) but I fixed mine by reversing the secondary gear so that the bad section is never encountered in the 180 degree travel. To find it, take off the glove box and it'll be right on the left side under there.

2005'Towncar. 40k miles. Started making an odd sound on acceleration; hard to describe but sounds like it is coming from passenger dash side. Maybe an air noise?? No sound on very soft acceleration


Turn off heater/air conditioner and accelerate briskly. If noise does not occur problem is probably a regulator in the heater/air conditioning system located under the dash.

try this.. disconnect the vehicle battery entirely, connect a 10 amp battery charger to the car connectors matching the terminal leads..and power the car with the charger..you should hear a hum or buzz in whichever relay or circuit breaker is bad.. replace this relay and the lights and stuff should work..the charger will not direct-short but the guage may go full over indicating a malfunction..or extreme load.. maybe a window switch might be fried..you should be able to hear any issues as long as power is coming from the charger only...repost findings..

This problem is very common with MkV VW's. It's related to the heat and evaporator components. It's some sort of flap motor.

Clicking noise in passenger dash


This is a motor that controls the air doors like temperature, defroster, floor air and vent air distribution. You have up to three different ones and one of them need to be replaced.
