Testimonial: "The information is correct. Its the blend door actuator. Got the part from the Murcury dealership for $76.99. Had to remove the dash."

I have and 2002 with rear air and had the same noise and problem in the back. There is motor in the back that moves a flapper door open and closed to blend the hot and cold. The motor has plastic gears in it and they strip out making a clicking noise when the motor cannot hit the point that the heat control dial is being set too. Probably the same set under the front dash. You will more than likely need to by a new motor assy.

Sounds like the blend door actuator needs to be replaced. It controls the air tempature from the vents and is mostly plastic. They break often.
