    Someone else said that. What does a blend door motor do? and how do you replace it?

There is a servo that opens and closes an air valve 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. Total cost? About 2 hours and $0.

2005 pontiac vibe just started making like & popping noise on the passenger side behind the glove box under the dash and the noise stops when the car is off. No heat or air was on


you have a bad actuator motor or a broken blend door in the heater box, the noise you hear is the skipping of the gears in the actuator motor, the ehating system along with ac use motors to move doors inside the heater box, the doors control the flow of the air and the temp, you will need to locate the bad one by unplugging one at a time, when noise stops you have the right one, remove it by removing screws that hold it to box. with motor removed look at the hole that controls the door, you will see a small square that the motor turns ,this id part of the door hinge, you should be able to turn side to side, this swings door left and right like a rood door, open or closed, if the door swings good then the actuator is bad, let me get a picture to help you located it, you will located the heater box in the location of the noise, behind glove box, try to acess from the bottom of the dash and also remove glovebox,hope this helps, good dayjohnjohn2_96.jpg

There is a clicking sound when running the ac and now it is there even if the ac is not on. The noise stops when the air circulation button is on. The noise is coming from the dashboard near the glove box....


you can remove the glove box easily. behind you can see the in cabin air filter panel, which you can remove and clean out the filter or replace. ofter there are leaves or other debris on it that make noise. please note the correct position of the filter. with the air filter out you can switch between fresh and recirculating air, you can see the door open and close. Your owners manual should have instructions. rockauto.com sells new in cabin air filters for very little $ . The fan motor may have debris caught in it as well. With the in cabin air filter out you can listen for noise.

My 2004 Pontiac Vibe making a continous clicking sound.


Check the hose connected to the drain for the condensor. It's behind the passenger side carpet on the floor by the firewall. (pull the carpet back from the top. Then you will see the black rubber hose on the bottom) It just gets pushed back on. Passengers kick it off some times. The noise drove me NUTS till I found it. It makes a hissing noise while running, then a tin can noise when under power/acceleration.

Hope this helps!

Clicking noise when the circulation button is not on


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.

How do I replace a Heater Blower motor in a 2003 Pontiac Vibe?


Remove the Glove box. You will then have access to the Blower unit. There are 3 screws that are holding the blow unit in place. You will need a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4 socket. Once you have located the unit remove the 3 screws and the unit will fall straight down. Unplug the wire harness and then reinsert the new Blower Motor. If you purchase an original GM part this makes life much easier, you just screw the 3 screws back into the holes and then plug the wire harness back in and reinstall the glove box. If you use an aftermaket part you will need to do some wire splicing to make it work but it is a 10 to 20 minute job depending on which part you decide to replace the Blower with.
