Strange noise clicking/ticking
« on: March 16, 2020, 08:29:38 PM »
Hey guys any idea what’s going on here this noise happens when the car is running or just the ignition switched on it’s pretty loud and annoying, sounds like it’s coming from the dash.
You hear the first quite click at 17s into the video and then a load more louder clicks at 26s into the vid.

Having trouble adding the link not sure if it’s working or not ?

My air con/fans make similar noises quite a lot.  Turn your blowers off and see if it happens again

I have the exact same noise which I've noticed recently over the last month or so. Mine also appears to be coming from the dash/airvents.

Mines the same. I only seem to notice it when the ignition is off. Seems to come from the tip of the dash somewhere.

From a bit of research it seems to be something to do with the air heater flaps/motor, the motor should be under the glove box, I might take it out and have a look while were on lock down.

@ROH ECHT thanks for posting the vids, do you definitely think it’s the recirculating flap motor ? It doesn’t sound anything like the noise in the first vid.

I’ve seem part number mentioned 1K2 907 511 G being the heater vent flap positioning motor
And also the one in the video 1K0 907 511 C being the recirculating flap motor.

I guess I need to get in there and disconnect one at a time and see if the noise stops.

Ii definitely do not believe yours is the recirculating flap...it is a constant ratcheting sound. I only heard the one time yours fluttered a bit. Not ever heard that one. Sorry.
