W203 C32 AMG fault

Hi folks,

I have a 2002 C32 AMG estate, really like to car but it has recently developed a strange fault.
When I start the car (or turn the key to position 2) a loud clicking noise can be heard coming from the passenger side of the dash, it usually clicks around 27-28 times then stops.
I've removed the panel in the passenger footwell, and tried to remove the glovebox but struggled to fully remove it, managed to have a look in but can't see anything obvious, any ideas?

thanks,

Tom

Likely some of the AC air flow flap actuators broken?

Hi,

thanks for the reply, I was wondering about the air con, the knock still happens if the heater is turned off. I read about broken air con linkages in another posting, does anyone have tips on how to get access to these motors?

thanks again

Tom

The car specific sub-forum would probably cover this issue or at least would provide instructions to access stuff inside the cluster area.
