Sounds like the dampener gear shaft is trying to either open or close the vent and clicks b/c its stripped... turn the climate contol to the middle and turn it off...see what happens play with the controls back and forth from h ot to cold high to low and see if it gets worse or stopps or makes any diff at all if thats it, you can take out glovebox removes some screws/bolts and remove the gear or pull the lil plastic shaft out , however it will effect the the performace of the heater/cooling system. I would recomend taking it to a dealer/local yokal if you notice a change so that way you can still use it...let me know what you find

1998 Honda Accord won't start. Hear electrical clicking sound coming from behind the glove box area. What could be causing this?

-There are couple thing that cause not to start:
*Before check the following, make sure battery is full of charge.
1. No thing at all. Possible Corrosion battery cable or bad connector or starter relay. (Visual Inspect it) Clean it or tight it
2.Click but never turn or start. Starter has dirty contact or worn out. (Replace W/new one)

Good luck

When i start my 2001 civic lx there is a clicking sound coming from the passenger side dash and engine light goes on and off. after it stops the car doesn't run right.

Check engine light usually means a problem with the
emissions control system. At any rate Honda is your
best bet. They will have to hook up and look for fault
codes. Clicking sound could be a relay.

Where is the cabin air filter located on an 2001 Rx 300 Lexus? Thanks

Behind the glove box. there are two "clips" that lock into either side of the glove box. you twist them counter clockwise & they come out(don't looose them you can't get replacements without buying the whole box. then there is a "shock" on the right side of the box that needs to be dis connected on the end. the box will now fall forward towards you & you'll be able to see the air filter door inside the cavity remove the door & there is the filter.
