Question about 2005 Pontiac Vibe
In a 2005 Pontiac Vibe, when the circulation button is not on, there is a clicking noise, but when it is not selected then there is no clicking noise.
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.

There is a servo that opens and closes an air door in the heating system. It's a two wire connection and presumably the only way the computer knows when the valve is open or closed is to sense high (stall) current in the servo motor. This is a poor design because it stresses a plastic secondary gear in the servo and can cause a couple teeth to break off. Now the gears skip (making the clicking sound) and the motor never stalls so computer never shuts it off and the clicking continues. It's an expensive part (of course) but I fixed mine by opening it up and reversing the secondary gear so that the bad section is never encountered in the 180 degree travel. To find it, take off the glove box and it'll be on the left side under there.
