Recently got in a small fender bender, easy fix. 2 days later i have a clicking noise when I turn my fan on. The noise comes from the passenger side under the dash. Clicking sound increases as the speed of the fan increases. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Clicking sound on passanger side of GMC Envoy
The fan assembly moved out of position during impact. Loosen the assembly, and remove for inspection. Sometimes leaves or debris come out of a vent during impact, and lie against the rotating squirrel cage assembly---thus the annoying noise.

Do you hear a clicking noise when you turn your truck on? Its probably the actuator. While the defroster was on I removed the fuse locted under the rear driver side seat. I think its 36B. It stopped the clicking noise and my air vents work well now.
The linkages or inside the door panel may have come off on the door lock. The best way to check the problem is to remove the panels and simulate the locking of the doors. You should see if there are parts that may have come off or had loosened up.
First check to see if its the belt. It may have separated. Then check the tensioner pulley, it may have a bad bearing. Pop your hood before you start the engine & run out to see right after u start it. have a flashlight with you... Its a good starting point
Check your Negative cable attatched to your starter. Next check your charge on your battery, a clicking noise indicates one of 2 things, 1. your battery is dead or dying and needs to be replaced, a battery charge will only solve the problem temporarily, it will continue to die and ruin your alternator. 2. your starter solenoid is going bad, being unable to deliver enough juice to your copper terminals surrounding the magnet that pushes the small gear pinion on to the flywheel and turns the motor to start.
most likely the blower motor squirrel cage hit the fan housing or the motor has a damaged bearing from the impact, the noise is coming from the fan which is on the passenger side, pull the fan assembly out and see if the blower cage is damaged, if it spins true then replace the blower motor, not a very hard job.
it sounds like you need a regulator for your alternater it is reversing polarity there for draining your battery and reseting the clock. it is located on the back of your alternator.hope this could help.
