Question about 2007 Chevrolet Impala LS Sedan New Cars

1 Answer

After turning the car off there is a terrible noise coming from behind the glove box, It is a clicking or ticking noise as if a fan is turning with an obstruction. Only makes the noise after you turn the car off, never while in use with the a/c on. I suspect it has to do with the a/c

The blend door actuator is hanging up. This actuator (motor) manipulates the door that allows fresh air or recirculation of air while using climate control.

    I have a Chevy 2008 Impala LTZ that has a clicking sound coming from the dash on the passenger side. I could feel the actuator motor on the left side of glove box vibrating when it was clicking (gears in the old one were broke) I replaced it and it started to act up again. I removed the motor again and tried to rotate the arm that the motor attaches to. It was hard to turn without using pliers. Is there a simple way to get at the door to free it up? I tried just disconnecting the wires. The noise stopped from the actuator but I started to get a lot of noise from my wife about the heat on her side when I was getting AC on my side.

Hi i hear a ticking coming from behind the glove box, i tried turning every thing off, it still ticks till i turn the car off

It may be the heater blower fan. It is always on when the car is running. I'm pretty sure the blower is under/behind the glove box.
Does the ticking noise change when you speed-up or slow the fan speed? If so, there may be a leaf or something stuck in the fan blades. You might have to have the blower motor removed to get it cleaned out.
Hope this helps...

Clicking noise in AC/Heater unit. Doesn't do in

the motor that opens the vent is stuck. Put in it fresh air mode. the vent should be on the pass side behind the glove box. Take off the glove box and disconnect the motor and replcae it. Or the cheap way is to not use that mode

the polos have a recycle flap motor located on the passenger side behind the glove compartment and a temp. flap motor also located behind the glove box but more towards the center of the dash and near the or both of these motors are probably stuck or slipping on the plastic gears.
