    Default clicking noise when i unlock car

    Hi

    This all started when i had my aircon regases, first when i turned the aircon on i would get a clicking noise coming from what seemed to be under the passenger dash, also got a slightly deeper clicking noise when i clicked the recycle air button.
    Now it happens when i unlock the car, then if i leave it unlocked when i open any of the doors, it lasts about 10 seconds.

    Any ideas?

    Or even the air recirc" servo. Try switching that on and off. If it makes the clicking noise when you turn it off then that is what is broken. They have a habit of breaking a tooth off. Do a search for recirs servo, you should find some info" about it.

    If it is the air recirc servo, it can be got to by removing the glove box. But the rear screw is a bit of an awkward one to remove. If you need any more information on it give me a shout. There is plenty on info" if you use the search function.
    Good luck with sorting it out.

    Kevin. What about trying this. Remove the glove box then disconect the recirc sevo, and see if the noise is still there, it might iliminate or conferm the recon servo.
    Have a look here.
