    Default clicking noise from behind dash

    ok so when i start the car i get a clicking noise from behind the dash area, to the left of the cd player

    when i turn the heater control from hot-cold or the other way i get the clicking noise again

    im guessing it has something to do with this? anyone had this problem before?

    If it's when you go from hot to cold or vice versa then it's the temperature mix servo has broken a tooth in the motor. Easily enough replaced, mine does it on the recirculated air one at the moment (exactly the same symptoms, but only clicks when the recirculation flap is re-opened each time), I just haven't got round to replacing it yet.

    The air re-circ motor retails at around the £72 mark (which is why I haven't bothered at the moment). If you can find a second hand one that hasn't broken then you should of course get that a hell of a lot cheaper.
