My 2004 explorer blows cold air while on heat position and also makes a clicking sound from the dash,

I agree with sayerfred. If your A/C is working fine and you only hear this constant clicking noise when the temperatuer knob is moved away from the full cold or blue area, and seems more intense the farther you move the knob to warm or red area, this problem is not the blend door and can be fixed without removing the dashboard. The part needed most often for this specific condition is Ford stock #YH-1744 also known specifically as Ford part number 1L2Z- 19E616-CA. Simply and ambiguously called "Motor", UPC #031508569584, is the correct fix for the problem. I've included all of these reference numbers because the part is NOT available aftermarket (only from Ford) and being a 10 year + old vehicle, most dealers no longer stock this part. You have to convince them that this is what you need and they may have to order it, so as much info as you can give them is critical. You can in fact do this without removing the dash but you will have to remove parts of the center console and you won't necessarily be able to see what you're doing under there so you'll have to feel around with your hands a lot. Once you locate it, there are 4 screws to remove and then pull it out of the control area. It's actually helpful and more intuitive to have the replacement part in hand before starting this job to get a feel for what you're looking for. I paid around $70 USD for the part itself. Although this method is labor intensive, it's far less labor intensive than removing the entire dashboard. Should you decide to go to the extreme and remove the dashboard completely, and you can afford it, your best bet is to replace the blend door assembly (as it is a common failure) and the heater core. The labor costs would be high if you don't do it yourself, but if you go that route, it would be foolish to remove the dashboard just to fix the no heat clicking noise and not do the complete job including the blend door and core as its accessible with the dashboard removed. Hiring a complete dashboard removal/heater core & blend door job could possibly exceed the value of the vehicle itself. Bottom line: If you have the exact problem described (and nothing else wrong such as air not being directed to the proper location) the part number and no dash removal is probably the way to go. I wish you luck and hope you rate this as helpful.

I Need instruction on how to replace a Blend door motor for a 2004 Ford Explorer

Just to give you a heads up, if you don't know about cars don't try this. First of all you will need to take apart the dashboard inorder to get to the blend door it's not a easy job.

2004 ford explorer heating

Check the heater control valve, when u switch to heating mode, this valve is supposed to open, allowing hot engine coolant into the heater core under the dash, it is not opening the valve, the clicking is the sound from it attempting to open the valve.
