I am having problems locating replacement parts for my Cherokee.
I need new vent covers for the dashboard as 2 are just gone and the rest are in various stages of being broken. The rear hatch or tailgate wont stay open by itself anymore, and the leather seats and carpet need to be redone eventually. I have looked through Quadratech and autopartswarehouse but saw nothing. Does anyone know of a good place to buy various parts? I dont think Autozone would carry the vents...

on my 2003 they are in three separate places....two are in engine compartment area...the third is behind a panel or passenger side...next to the glove compartment where the air vent is located (air vent to the door) i suspect the instrument panel fuses are in the engine compartment area....hope that helps
Does the ticking come from the top of the dashboard close to the defrost vents I'd say about the middle of the dashboard? If so it may be you vent door actuator(switches the door to either blow cold air or warm air) that has gone bad and needs to be replaced, the only thing is that it's located on top of the air distribution box and in order to get to it, you have to remove the dashboard which is really a huge undertaking. I've had the same happen before to me on a Lincoln Town car. All i did was unplug it at the time since it never stopped once I turned on the AC or heater.
Are the vents open ? It shouldn't be to hard to locate where it's coming from, if your running your A/C then put the setting on interior recirculate not outside air (pulls outside air thru the fan). I could help out more but you didn't state the make model or year of your car.
First check blower motor, possible go to bad or no power to it check fuses blower switch blower motor.
Try this procedure to remove this device... 1 Detach the negative and positive battery cables from the battery of your 2001 Jeep Cherokee with an open end wrench and crescent wrench. 2 Remove the cap from off the radiator and also from the top of the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side of the Jeep. Locate the drain valve at the base of the radiator and place a drain pan on the ground, below the drain valve. 3 Open the drain valve on the radiator with an open end wrench and allow the coolant to drain into the pan completely. When it is finished, close the drain valve and remove the drain pan. 4 Unfasten the dash pad on the top of the dashboard by using a screwdriver to undo the screws holding it in place. Check the defroster vent and remove any screws holding the vent screen in place. 5 Remove the trim panel underneath the passenger side of the dashboard with a screwdriver and set it aside. Locate the plastic box that is sitting underneath the dashboard on the passenger side. 6 Undo all the screws that are holding the plastic box in place with a screwdriver and set the box off to the side. Locate the heater core that was sitting inside the plastic box. 7 Unscrew all the screws that are holding the heater core to the firewall with clamps underneath the dashboard. Remove the clamps from the heater core. 8 Lay a piece of plastic sheeting on the passenger side floorboard to cover the carpet from any coolant remaining in the heater core. Pull the heater core away from the firewall until you see the hoses attached to the inlet and outlet pipes on the unit. 9 Remove the water hoses from the pipes on the heater core by unscrewing the hose clamps with a screwdriver and sliding the hoses off the pipes. 10 Take the old heater core out of the Jeep Cherokee and dispose of the unit. Recycle the drained coolant by taking the drain pan with the fluid to your local recycling center or automotive supply
Just a guess but have you checked the Resistor for the Blower Motor. Located under the Glove Box on the inside of the firewall. One small screw holds a cover on, and behind the cover to the left of the round diaphragm is the Resistor held in by 2 screws. I believe they are small hex head sheet metal screws. It wasn’t easy getting it out past the diaphragm. It is a series of wound coils. Hope it works
