Stuck AC vent/direction. Annoying clicking sound.

When I start up the car I get an annoying clicking sound, after further investigation I realized it is from a stuck AC vent inside the dashboard. I can only get air to flow at the foot or windshield level. I realize this may be a job for a pro but wanted to see if anyone had any secrets or tricks on getting behind the dash and trying to free this thing.

you have a bad stepper motor. only way to fix it is replace it but you have to determine which one it is, there are several behind the dash.

When you post asking questions...

it is always good to:

1) have a complete profile, including your location, and

2) indicate the model and year of the vehicle in your post.

Looks like you got an answer anyway...
