SOURCE: rear end thumping noise

its your tyre, if it sounds like a flat when you drive your tyre has warped very difficult to see on a normal inspection, we get it a lot in spain.

SOURCE: 2005 expedition rear a/c makes thumping noise when transferring

Sounds like the roof/floor actuator internal gear is stripped. The only way to fix it is to replace it. Remove the cup holder in the right rear trim panel. remove the 8mm bolts holding actuator and replace.

SOURCE: thumping noise in the front end

Rotate tires front to back and test drive if same thumping is felt then tires not the problem.
Next check out ball joints/ tie rods
Dont believe it is the rotors unless thumping happens only when applying brakes
Good luck

SOURCE: thumping rythmic noise from passenger side dash

Don't you just love it: thump, thump, thump, thump, pause, thump, thump...? I've found the best solution is to use compressed air as used in cleaning the keyboard of your laptop. Take a very thin (but strong) metal strip about 1/32" thick and gently place inside the edge of the recirculate button. VERY GENTLY depress the recirculate button just until the thumping stops. Apply just enough upwards pressure on the strip to hold the button in place. This creates enough of a gap for the air to blow behind the button. hold the can of air no more than one inch (1") away from the strip and aim directly to the left or right of the strip. Once you've cleaned from behind the button completely, that mother thumping (LOL) song will be no more.

Tiguan no internal air circulation


your air con system will have a fresh / resirc system apart from on defrost, which is only external air.
the blower motor up under the dashboard on most cars, will have a flap which is either cable or switch operated. I assume this flap is either jammed, broken, or the device which operates it is same,
take the glovebox out and you should see the flap.
note...its all plastic so dont force anything!
cheers

95 Ford is making a thumping sound and the car smells of antifreeze after warmed up. Makes same noise after car is parked and shut off. I suspect it is a bad water pump.


Good Evening, What sounds like is happening could range from a thermostat being stuck shut or a waterpump not circulating the water and your getting the air hammer of the water boiling in your car. First thing to check is your antifreeze level when cold to be sure it is full. Once you know it is full check the thermostat because it is an easier thing to check then suspect the waterpump if the thermostat is not stuck shut. Let me know how it goes.

Ac blows warm


was it regassed when you changed the compressor? a/c units can be quite difficult, they have certain pressures inside and the valves will not engage the compressor if its not gassed right. on the pipe running from the condensor to the compressor you should see an outlet/inlet valve, you can use your key or a small screwdriver to depress a valve in it to see if its got pressure, just give it a quick push to see if pressure comes out so you dont reverse the valve inside the system and pop the rubber seal. good way to indicate if theres gas and pressure. its like your tyre if your releasing air out of it if this helps.

Clicking noise when the circulation button is not on


I have the same problem...found where the noise is coming from, but don't know how to fix it. If you completely take out the glove compartment box you and you have the air on and push the circulation button off while watching that area, you should see what is making that noise. It is some type of filter I think.

2003 Ford Explorer. A/c blows cold, but not from front of vents


I have the 03 Expy with continuous rear air unit "clicking" or more accurately flapping of the air damper while the plastic gears in the 2L2H-19E616-AA grind away into toothlessness. Ford designed this unit to find the end of travel by jamming the motor to a stop and monitoring the current to determine when to stop applying voltage. That would probably be fine if the gears were designed to handle the jammed torque or the motor did not slip out of groove and continue turning and cracking the plastic gears.

There are two white colored boxes, one is for the temp plenum door, the other the upper/lower air flow. To be sure, do what I did, turn on the ignition, rear ac/heat and listen for the obnoxious click/thump as you move the temp control from full heat to full cool, you will know which part. Disconnect the electrical connector, four bolts and it is out!

Go to your dealer, part should be about $60 or less, look on line, lots of dealers sell for this or less on internet.

Horn will not shut off


It sounds as if your horn ground wire has come un-grounded. Look under your hood for the wire for your horn and re-ground it. I had that same problem with my Malibu and thats all it took. If it doesnt work then your best bet is to just leave it disconnected and get a bullhorn and just yell at the other drivers when they do something stupid. LOL ;)
Hope that helps!
