How do I remove the under-dash air recirculation flap door motor?

How do I remove the under-dash air recirculation flap door motor on my 1994 full-size Chevy Blazer. I can see the flap door when I remove the blower motor. It is working properly but makes a clicking sound when actuated by engaging the MAX A/C. I think it needs replacing.

SOURCE: clicking noise under dash

It likely has a bad temp control actuator for the blend door.

SOURCE: Vacume leak under dash. Sounds like door opening

You got it right, there is a 'door' that opens and closes under the dash to change cooled or heated air flow to the interior vents. A vacuum line either disconnected, or is leaking somewhere, and is most likely responsible for the lack of a/c. You are going have to hunt around to try and find where the leaking/disconnected line is to repair it. It's not going to be a fun job. You can access diagrams and info on your car (for a fee) at alldatadiy. Look under HVAC system to see the info you need. Good luck.

What is the clicking noise that comes from my blower motor under the dash when I start my motor or shut the motor off? The clicking continues for a few seconds either way.


Sounds like your flap motor is trying to reset itself or the air recirculating valve is opening and shutting. You need to da a basic setting on your air con unit with a scanner

I have a 1994 Chevy Silverado and every time I turn on the ignition, the knocking noise begins from under the dash somewhere. If I remove the fuse to the a/c/heater it doesn't make a sound when I


Try starting the truck so it makes the noise.
Then switch the air control to "fresh".
If noise stops, it is probably the motor that closes flap to recycle the cab air.
It would be found under the dash, under the glove box, & would need to be replaced.

There is an actuator for the recirculation door. It is probably bad. The actuator is at the firewall and is very hard to get off for replacement. The dash cover has to come off, then the defroster ducts. Then with a long extension, 5.5mm socket, a universal and a lot of luck, you get the actuator off without removing other dash parts.

A small arm is helpful.

this sounds like the recirculation door in the heater box is broken and this is a difficult and can be an expensive repair as the dash has to be removed for access. a quick check for this is if you release the glove box and let it hang you will see the heater box if you reach up to the left top you will feel a grid and the recirc flap is housed there you can operate the blower and hot and cold and see if flap moves

I would think the door you hear flapping is the door that controls the airflow across the heater coil - and the fan keeps blowing the door closed, preventing the airflow from going across the heating coil. I don't know whether this vehicle is vacum controlled or cable controlled - so either it's a disconnected cable, or a leaking vacum line.
