    Default Heater clicking noise again

    Hi guys,

    I have tried the How 2 to fix the heater problem where it won't work on settings 1, 2 and 3 which has now been resolved but there is still a clicking / tapping noise from behind the glove box.

    I know there are numerous threads regarding this but I cannot find the a solution.

    Sorry if I have missed this posted elsewhere.

    Thanks

    I had a clicking noise on mine , i would happen every time the ignition was turned on.

    It turned out to be the motor that controls the air recirculation flap, the click was it jumping teeth.

    I bought a replacement motor and started on the job to change it.

    You require a torx screw driver IIRC , think it was just two screws although top on is a pain to remove I ended up breaking the lug on mine getting it out, lug stayed in place under the screw into the fan housing.

    I then took the motor casing off and replaced the internals with the new internals and replaced it on the car and super glued the lug back on and glued it in place.

    I got the motor through ebay for around £10 delivered.

    You need to check if the recirculation flap works, when pressing it with the fan on you should hear a increase/decrease in noise (louder when recirculating).

    If its not this will be one of the other flaps but believe this in the culprit most of the time.

    Something like:

    although check the part numbers!
