I have a crown vic snd behind the glove box mskes a weird clinking noise off and on some times I was told a actuator is bad b7t there are 5 back there how do I know which one to replace

There isn't 5 actuators behind the glove box. There may be five relays though. Next time it clicks, check them for heat. Most likely the hottest on is the bad one. Just a note. Bad connections/corrosion can cause this also. Pull them all and reinsert them. Then wait and see.

Glove box area 2002 jeep noise

I'm lost here.
You have a noise around or behind the glove box. And you say you have filled and bled the system.
The cooling system ??
How would the cooling system produce a noise in the cabin ?
Could the noise be the blower motor ?
Or something loose behind the glove box ? Does the noise happen when you are driving, or sitting still, or both ?

The heat/ac fan works only on high. All other functions operate normally. I am told there is a module located in the duct that needs replaced. Is this true, if so how do I access it?

Try opening the glove box and looking in behind it for wires coming from blower motor and they will go to a connector that is attached to the blower motor resistor, usually mounted in the ducting with 2 small screws. That resistor needs to be replaced. You may have to empty glove box and flip it down to see it, or look up under and behind glove box.

I have a clicking noise coming from within the dashboard passenger side which seems to be linked with the climate control unit on the vw polo gti x plate (2000) as certain settings make the ticking...

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.

Pontiac vibe is making a clicking noise behind the

sounds like a blend door motor making noise to me.

Vent Control Noise Behind Glove Box

The noise is coming from the blend door motors.
All of the climate control doors (vents, defroster, temperature, recirculation etc) are controlled by electronic motors. As the motors age they tend to make a buzzing noise when they move.

There is a software upgrade that is available to minimize the noise, but it will always make the noise to some degree.

Hope this helps.

Clicking noise behind the glove box

The little box is called the blend door actuator. It is an inexpensive fix, and you should be able to do it at home. There are a lot of online step by step guides to fix it! Good luck, i hope it helps, i am having the same issue!
