    Default Heater Control Clicking/Tapping

    Hi, another problem i could do with help please. I've had the heat off all day. Just been out and as i turned the heater control from blue to red a very loud click/tapping comes from behind the glovebox. I stopped turning and sent back to blue, tapping stops.

    Left it for a while, managed to turn from blue to red with no noise......but no heat. Then with a bit more tapping noise, i get heat

    Does something need replacing?

    Ta

    Sounds like a problem I had. This is the info I was given, worth checking.

    I,m afraid you have lost one or more of the teeth on the recirc" servo, it is a common thing on the vectra. Do a search for "air recirc servo" there is a lot of information should you be unfortunate to need it

    Thanks, i've had a read on some of the threads. I'm just not understanding if it's a front or back servo and will i know? Will it start to click continuously and if so can i disconnect anything to stop the noise prior to fitting a new servo? Also when i click on the links that are in the threads, i don't have access. Is that because i am not a full member?
    Cheers
    Paul.
