I have an 06 Kia Spectra and when I turn OFF the a/c or ONLY run the windshield defroster there is a loud clicking/tapping sound coming from underneath the dashboard. Can someone tell me what may be the problem and how I can fix it. Thanks in advance.

Something has fallen down a vent into the fan. If you are lucky, you can remove the fan/motor and find it.

Testimonial: "Well, the loud tapping noise sounds like it's coming from somewhere toward the middle of the dash underneath, and the fan/motor is on the passenger side under the glove compartment. I replaced that about 6 months ago myself. I've heard others complain about this noise when the a/c is running and it turned out to be a bad actuator. Could that also be possible in this case?"

I need a diagram of how to remove defrost grille from 2003 Kia Spectra


I'm not sure there is such a thing.
Is there a chance you are speaking of the plastic trim around the inside of the windshield?
Visit your Kia dealer and ask them, they will know if such a diagram exists, or call them on your phone if it is too far for you to drive.
God bless your efforts.

Fog goes away when i turn on heat. windows fog up from top to bottom. that means it is not a heater core


May I assume you've tried the 'defrost' setting? Front or rear windshield? I'd be looking at control to turn on 'defrost'. As for the in/out, there's an inlet and outlet hose to the core.

When i turn my knob to defrost the ac light comes on


Yes it does.
In defrost mode, the compressor runs to dry the air blowing onto the windshield. Normal on all cars with air conditioning.

Heater on 2003 kia spectra blows out defrost only


Your vent door may be stuck. If you have electric controls listen for a sound in the dash when your turn the knob from defrost to the vents. If you don't hear anything you will need to check the switch then the door/motor. Hope this will help you.

check your fuse box under the hood. There'll be a much bigger relay in that box that controls your running lights and windows. Those relays may have gone bad
