Yes, common problem. Blend door actuator is stripping it's gears. Remove actuator and make sure door rotates by hand. If not remove heater box and repair door operation. If it moves OK by hand, replace the actuator. I don't have procedures for replacing yours, but follow the sound, removing whatever panels necessary to get to it. The part looks like the below pic and sits flat on the heater box with a cable coming out of it. Cost is about $35. Let me know if you have any more questions.

When the temp control is switched to heat there is a clicking noise under the dash and no heat comes of this. The noise is continues until cold air is turned on.


theres a good possibility that the blend door in heater is bad, or the acuator itself. the reason it works when heat is not on is, the heater blend door does not move so you get cool air. when you turn it to heat the blend door moves over to direct heat in car. if its working properly. good-day ! this is for a 2004 explorer, but i believe that it is the same as a 2005. please go to this site for more info, and how to save a few hundred bucks. www.wiki.answers.com/q/how_do_you_repair_the_heater_on_a_2004_ford_explorer this site is do it yourself in about 45 minutes. but the garage charges 2.5 hours labor. the dash does not have to come out. good-day!

Heater blowing cold air and fan is making clicking noise when turned on.


check that you have coolant, that is a dangerous symptom, if you have low or no coolant, your heater core will not be able to heat up and transfer heat into vehicle. Clicking is probably just dusty blower motor out of alignment. you will have to remove cover and clean and check alignment

Heater&air conditioning vents wont reach position make a clicking noise have no heat or air how do i fix? 2003 ford explorer


The clicking noise you hear is a stripped out plastic gear from the blend air door motor almost every car maker now uses little electric motors to control heater door panels,put it in the position for it to make noise go under your dash find where it is usually externally mounted remove it and replace it cost about 30 dollars at the dealer.depending on which of the 3 motors its is usually not hard to do.

I have a 2004 Ford explorer. No heat but blowing cold air out....also hearing a clicking sound in the dash area.


if you have the automatic temperature control or electronic air temperature control your problem is probably the air temperature blend control motor. you'll have to replace it. checked the linkage from the blend door lever to the control motor first. make sure it is connected properly. if it is, play sure finger on the lever and feel for the vibration associated with the clicking. if you can feel it, replace the control motor.

No Front heat


the noise u are hearing is the caused by a defective air temp control blend door actuator motor, all to common problem on Ford's, the part is fairly cheap but the dash must be removed to replace the part.
