Question about 2004 Kia Sorento
When the air is turned on there is a clicking noise coming from the feet of the passenger side. Worker at Autozone told me it was the blend door actuator. Does this need to be replaced? thanks
Yes it is slipping due to a likely warped ait temperature control blend door. The noise is caused by the tiny motor drive gear drive jumping teeth because it can't move the door.

Hi Don'a, here is a temporary solution; until the linkage is replaced. Make sure your heater is in dual mode and not turned up all the way. Then only use the face setting and close the driver vents. This will allow heat to circulate and not blow cold air onto the driver. If you use the floor setting or the defrost setting then the driverside takes over and it blows cold air. Good luck. In the mean time look at some of the other posts about this issue for part #. And if you have a mechanic that can work on it, he will probably be cheaper than the dealership.
