All,
How are ya?
I have a ticking that comes from the climate control blower. (Whatever it's called.. :) ) I turn it off, it goes away, on it's there. I tried pulling the cabin filter to see if that may be the issue and still there. I am 4k over the 60,000 mi so I figure I am now out of total luck (though I have mentioned it before and they couldn't hear/find anything). Has anyone any thoughts on what it might be and thoughts on what it may cost (of if I just turn up the radio)? It sure does get annoying at times.
Thanks much!
-Andy

Does the ticking frequency increase with fan speed or stay constant?

Hi Indy,

If the frequency of the noise changes with the fan speed, I'm guessing a small leaf or pine needle made its way down to the blower. That will go away after a while. If it's still the same sound at different speeds, maybe a bad bearing on the blower motor. My money is on the leaf idea.

Good luck,

Jim

Drop the fan off the bottom of the box and look/remove whatever from cage if needed.

Thanks y'all! Yes, it does change with fan speed, and goes away when off. That is a good point about leaf etc. I will check that out for sure. Is there a good place (I will do a search here as well) that will show how to pull the box? I can mess things up pretty good at times. :D
