    Blend Door Actuator Problem Thread (Clicking noise behind dash)

    Just posting here for posterity in case anyone else has this issue.

    About a week ago my car started making this loud clicking noise when the AC is turned on. It's the same noise in this youtube video (not my video).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biEkATc3uSU


    Dropped the car off this morning 7:00 AM with an appointment, and they still have not looked at the car as of 3:00PM. Looks like they are going to keep the car overnight (no loaner naturally ).

    I'll keep this thread updated with the results.

    Its whats called a mode door (blend door actuator) its what controls where the air goes in the ac (foot well, vents, etc...) Mine did the same thing not a big deal they SHOULD have it fixed that day.

    Have you heard back from your dealer about your ST? Please keep me updated on this.

    They looked at the car today (day 2) and found it to be the blend door actuator as hunter said above. Scheduled to get the car back today at 4PM. I've been in touch with @FordService already, thanks Meagan.

    Blend Door Actuator Issue - Clicking noise from center console

    Hello all, I'm Javier and I've had my 2015 FiST for about a month now. I've got about 1700 miles on it and I'm loving every mile; however, there's been a clicking noise coming from the center console for the last week. It has only happened when I start the car for about ten seconds and then goes away. If I start it again right after it won't click. I've included two videos to show what I'm talking about.

    https://youtu.be/p9ANx1ulRjw

    https://youtu.be/8jEoMewXxgg

    The video shot at night has less ambient noise so it's more noticeable. It sounds to me like some sort of motor that is stuck. When I place my hand on the plastic on the side, I can feel the clicking.

    I will be taking my car to the dealership on Monday but am worried that the techs will damage the interior in the process of fixing it. Has anyone had any experience with this? Anybody have any recommendations?

    My best guess is an HVAC vent door or blend motor.

    I just replaced the HVAC Blend Door Actuator for this very problem. Kudos to Rodmoe for his help. Pretty straight forward to do, but its a tight squeeze working under the dash and on your back in the drivers side footwell. Motorcraft part # YH-193 AV1Z-19E616. Got it brand new of ebay for $ 47.20 free shipping. And it took about 4 hours to install.

    Thanks for the quick replies guys. I spoke to my salesman and he said to bring it in and that it would be covered under warranty. My question to you Flaco is if I would be better off doing it myself? I have experience working on cars but am not a mechanic.
